President Of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has now ordered the security forces in Nigeria to assassinate or kill any bandit or hooligan seen with sophisticated weapons like AK-47 and others.
This order was given by the spokesman of the President, Garba Shehu in an interview with BBC. Garba Shehu made known that Buhari has ordered and agreed for all security agencies to begin to kill bandits seen with weapons.
In Garba Shehu’s words to BBC in an interview, he said,
“The President has ordered security forces to go into the bushes and shoot whoever they see with sophisticated weapons like AK-47. He ordered that whoever is seen with terrible weapons at all should be shot immediately.”
Garba Shehu also continued disclosing that the FG has declared a no-flight zone in Zamfara State following intelligence that arms were being transported to the bandits in that state with different Private Jets.
This comes after mining activities were banned in Zamfara State back in April 2017 in conjunction with the security crisis in Zamfara which was extended by citizens who were hell-bent on mining the state’s gold reserves.
In Garba Shehu’s words, he said,
“These jets are being used to pick up gold that is being mined in some parts of Zamfara and exported. This is strong because, at the moment, there’s a Nigerian gold market in Dubai.
“The government is losing, the people of this country are losing, that’s why it is said that gold mining is banned for those are not made by the government.”
