President Muhammadu Buhari has again warned criminals terrorizing Nigerians to stop pushing their luck too far by believing that the government lacks the capacity to crush them.
The President issued the warning following attacks in Zamfara State which led to the death of about 80 persons and the destruction of properties.
In a statement by his media aide, Garba Shehu, Buhari condemned the incidents, and restated that “such wanton disregard for life will be brought to an end sooner than later.”
“The violence against poor villagers who are struggling with poverty and other severe economic challenges is not going to be tolerated by this administration,” he added.
He directed Nigeria’s security agencies to immediately close all gaps in their operations that are being exploited by criminals to wreak havoc, asking them to “redouble their efforts in bringing an end to this mindless violence against innocent people.
“Let’s not give these criminals any opportunity to succeed by taking the war to their own camps and stop them in their tracks before they even have the time to respond under our massive firepower.
Despite the attacks, Buhari reassured Zamfara people that “there will be no compromise in our determination to defeat these enemies of humanity.
