Following the current unrest in several parts of the country, it can be deduced that Nigeria is on ‘fire’ and ‘dangling’ in the hands of bandits who have refused to heed the words of Nigerian leaders.

The recent spike in general insecurity ranging from incessant killings, abduction and other activities of bandits could be traced to the two months deadline recently issued to them by President Muhammadu Buhari.

DAILY POST recalls that President Buhari, while deploying 6,000 troops to Zamfara State last week, said bandits had two months to surrender.

The Zamfara State Governor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle relayed Buhari’s message on Tuesday last week during a state-wide broadcast.

Following the current unrest in several parts of the country, it can be deduced that Nigeria is on ‘fire’ and ‘dangling’ in the hands of bandits who have refused to heed the words of Nigerian leaders.

The recent spike in general insecurity ranging from incessant killings, abduction and other activities of bandits could be traced to the two months deadline recently issued to them by President Muhammadu Buhari.

DAILY POST recalls that President Buhari, while deploying 6,000 troops to Zamfara State last week, said bandits had two months to surrender.

The Zamfara State Governor, Bello Muhammad Matawalle relayed Buhari’s message on Tuesday last week during a state-wide broadcast.

According to the governor, the deployed troops were to crush bandits who refuse to surrender their weapons after the expiration of the two months deadline.

“In my discussion with President Muhammadu Buhari and the security higher commands in Abuja, it was resolved that 6,000 additional troops will be deployed to complement the effort of other security forces in tackling the security challenges in the state.

“The troops will soon arrive in the state for their operations and we are grateful to the federal government.

“The president has agreed to a time frame within which the recalcitrant bandits should surrender their weapons and key into our peace initiative.”

However, instead of instilling fear in the bandits, the ultimatum has rather triggered more attacks as many of their dubious activities were recorded in a week.

Recall that on Thursday, gunmen suspected to be bandits raided the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation in Mando, Kaduna state and whisked away 39 students.

The gunmen reportedly stormed the school on Thursday morning, shooting indiscriminately before taking the students.

Kaduna State Commissioner for Internal Security, Samuel Aruwa who confirmed the incident, said 39 of the students (23 females and 16 males) were missing while the army was able to rescue 180 people after a battle with the gunmen. as Buhari’s ultimatum to bandits triggers more attacks on Nigerian schools
