The Nigerian Military has assured the general public that bandits will not be allowed to move freely into other States, after fleeing States that are currently been ravaged by banditry.
The Defence Media Operation (DMO), in a statement by its Coordinator, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said there are worries from some quarters in the North West and North Central parts of the Country that armed bandits could escape from States where the Armed Forces of Nigeria and other security agencies are conducting various operations at the moment, to other states.
He however, noted: “In this regard, the High Command of the Nigerian Military hereby assures all concerned that proactive measures are in place to handle such occurrences.
“To address this specifically, all current operations are in synergy with the ongoing operations in the North West to tackle interstate movement of armed bandits and other criminals within the North West and North Central zones.”
Enenche, disclosed that air assets have been deployed to cover Kaduna, Niger, Nasarawa and Kogi States.”
He noted: “…the Armed Forces of Nigeria is totally committed to tackling all the security challenges in the country until normalcy is restored. Hence, the public is requested to continue to provide credible information to the Nigerian Military.”
