JUST IN: Buhari orders crackdown on bandits, kidnappers

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the service chiefs and other security and intelligence coordinators of the nation to mark and take out bandits, kidnappers and their sponsors. 

The Nation reports the National Security Adviser (NSA), Major-General Babagana Monguno, disclosed this to State House correspondents after a security meeting, chaired by President Buhari in the State House, Abuja. 

Voiceairmedia. com gathered that the president also warned the security chiefs that a situation where criminals dictate the pace of security events in the country should be ended immediately, ordering them to be proactive. 



TheCable reports that he added that President Buhari also insisted that all the decisions approved at the recently held National Security Council meeting, including the ban on mining activities in Zamfara and the no-fly-zone order, remain in force until further notice. 

He quoted the president as saying that the armed forces should be more proactive rather than reactionary. 

Monguno said the president also insisted that all the decisions approved at the national security council meeting in February remain enforced. 

The decisions include a ban on mining activities in Zamfara and the no-fly order imposed on the state. The president was quoted as saying that the status quo should be maintained in Zamfara, so as to curb insecurity in the state. The meeting with the service chiefs comes ahead of Buhari’s medical trip to London, UK. 

A senior special adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, had on Monday, March 29, announced that the trip is “routine.” 

The president is expected to return to the country in the second week of April.
