President Muhammadu Buhari says he has ordered the military and the police to “be ruthless” against the bandits terrorising the north-west part of the country.
He made this declaration during an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.
“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.”
