Buhari sends 1000 military forces to Zamfara

According to the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the Federal Government has assembled a 1000 strong military force to launch attacks on the bandits terrorising the villages and towns of Zamfara State.

Shehu said following President Muhammadu Buhari directive, the Nigerian Air Force has begun the deployment of fighter aircraft to Katsina, the airport with the closest proximity to Zamfara State to make for immediate and effective response to the menace of the bandits .

In a statement released to the media he said “The President has also authorised the engagement by NAF of advanced satellite surveillance technology to help in accurate detection of movement and locations of the bandits. The government had to go to this extent because of the limitations of conventional surveillance , as the use of satellite technology could make the task of NAF less problematic. Following directives from the President, at the weekend , the Chief of Air Staff , Air Marshall Sadiq Abubakar , was in Gusau where he met the Deputy Governor of the state. The Chief of Air Staff reiterated the President’ s pledge that he would never abandon the victims of attacks to their fate, reaffirming that security remains one of the cardinal pillars of his campaign promises and no leader would be happy to see his own citizens killed by criminal groups across the country.
