State House Press Release: President Buhari Orders Military Crackdown On Banditry In Zamfara; Approves New Measures To Check Terrorist Activities

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered a military crackdown on bandits operating in rural communities in Zamfara State, following fresh attacks on some communities in Shinkafi and Maradun Local Government Areas.

To enable the army carry out this new mandate, the President has approved the request of the Minister of Defence, Brig-Gen. Mansur Dan Ali (rtd) for the stationing of a full battalion of Special Forces in Zamfara State, and the operationalization of the newly-established 8 Division of the Nigerian Army in Sokoto in the new Order of Battle (OBAT).

The President has also approved the movement of the 1 Brigade of the Nigerian Army from Sokoto to Gusau upon the take-off of the 8 Division.

To tackle the desperate actions of Boko Haram terrorists in the North-east, through the use of mostly female, underage girls as suicide bombers, President Buhari has equally approved the setting up of an intelligence fusion centre in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, for the purpose of gathering and sharing intelligence among the security agencies in the country.

This phase of the war will be intelligence-driven and the new centre is expected to intensify the harvesting and sharing of intelligence so as to bring to an early closure, the desperate last-minute activities of the terrorists.

Notice how this message has deliberately refused to address the marauders by their known title which is " Fulani Herdsmen" but instead opts for more blanket term " Bandits" which make the mandate clearly confusing to the military

Just like the way Ipob and Boko haram terrorist were flushed out and the terrorist leader Nnamdi Cownu & Shekau went into perpetual hiding. Bandits of any type should not be allowed in any sane society, they posed threats to lives, properties and National security.

Nigeria is really a useless country - a zoo!

So we've officially started using the Nigerian Army as a law enforcement agency? What happened to the Nigerian Police? How do you maintain your army as a full ready fighting force when you deploy them in fighting petty crimes?

Nigeria, we hail thee ....

We should just go back to military rule, since the military has become the de facto police force in the country.

Those crimes are not pretty crimes!


The intelligence fusion centre to be created in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital can serve as a law enforcement agency.

What is the DIA there for?
The Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), is the primary military intelligence agency of Nigeria.

The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps also enforce law.

So a whole lot can be done to take the hoodlums.

I have lived in the US for over 20 years but I have never seen the US Military on the street. But in Nigeria, we deploy the Army to fight all manner of petty crimes and civil disobedience! That's bizarre. You don't deploy army of the street except during the war or the state of emergency.

True talk bro. But I tell you. The North needs a strong touch. Buhari has overlooked a lot of their wrongdoings. Have you seen the latest? So disturbing. Since I've been living in Canada myself, ive never seen such genocide at all. Plus when it's now a daily affair in Nigeria.

Brother, Buhari has kept mute for too long.
Re: President Buhari Orders Military Crackdown On Banditry In Zamfara by Okoyiboz3: 6:27pm On Nov 22, 2017
Those bandits must have really shown the fulani herdsmen hell for Buhari to order a crackdown on the bandits.

Fulani Herdmen kill 200 in a village - Buhari has ear problems, he can't hear.

ISIS kills 11 people in France - Buhari has verbal diarrhoea and starts rush-talking to commiserate with them and condemn ISIS.
