Lieutenant General, Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, says the Nigerian Army will continue to be ruthless against criminal bandits in the country.
Buratai reiterated this during his visit to the Army Super camp four, Faskari; the operational base of the troops in the North-West.
He said the Army was ever determined to fish out and kill the bandits who have been terrorising the people until the country was completely rid of banditry.
“The bandits and other criminals are not spirits. They live among people. Let me assure you, we shall continue to be ruthless with the criminals. We are determined to work harder along with the support of other sister agencies to achieve peace in Nigeria,” he said.
“But, the earlier these criminals are not shielded, the sooner we will win the insecurity challenges. I will urge our people especially in the communities our men are in operation to always supply us with credible information on the criminals so that together we will win the battle against insecurity.”
The Army Chief further urged residents not to relent in disclosing the identities of criminals in their communities, insisting this would assist in ensuring security in the country.
