President Muhammadu Buhari has told bandits that they should be ready for crushing defeat.

The President gave the warning on Monday while reacting to the killing of over 30 people in Goronyo, Sokoto State on Sunday.

Buhari, in a statement issued by his media aide, Garba Shehu, said the days of the bandits were numbered because the military capabilities of our forces were being boosted by the acquisition and deployment of advanced equipment.

He appealed to all Nigerians “not to despair because this administration is determined more than ever before to protect Nigerians from murderous criminal gangs that have no respect for the sanctity human of life.”

The president extended his sympathy to the families of the victims of the Goronyo attack and called on the people to continue to be patient as the military strategised on how to deliver the crushing blow to these bandits.”

He said: “The clock of your ultimate destruction is ticking as you will no longer have a place to hide.
