President Muhammadu Buhari, on Wednesday, said he has ordered the military and the police to deal with bandits terrorizing the north-west region of the country.
Buhari made this known in an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.
He said bandits would be treated in the language they understand and there will be difference in few weeks.
“Problem in the north-west; you have people over there stealing each other’s cattle and burning each other’s villages. Like I said , we are going to treat them in the language they understand. We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be difference.
”Because we told them if we keep people away from their farm, we are going to starve. And the government can’t control the public.
”If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference,” he said.
