Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, the National Secretary, APC Caretaker, and Chairman of the Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), issued the promise in a statement in response to bandit deaths in Zamfara. While denouncing the development, the APC scribe expressed his sadness over the deaths of innocent Nigerians in their villages in Zamfara by criminal organizations known as bandits.
Despite the trend, he said, the Buhari administration had been committed in retooling the Armed Forces.
“The government has been steadfast in retooling the Armed Forces, recruitment of personnel and intensified training to enhance their operational capacity in safe guarding public safety and the territorial integrity of the country.
“We assure Nigerians that banditry and insurgency will be crushed.
“Indeed, the recent designation of these satanic, evil and criminal elements as terrorist groups will further buoy our security services to deal with them as such and ultimately contain their nefarious activities in the country,’’ he said.
Akpanudoedehe expressed his condolences to the families of those who had died, as well as his condolences to the administration and people of Zamfara, saying that the killings in the state and elsewhere in the country would not go unpunished.
He praised the military and other security forces for their concerted assault on criminals’ camps, which resulted in the rescue of kidnapped persons and the neutralization of criminal groups.
He claimed that the terrorists, who were previously bandits, were fleeing as a result of troop clearance operations forcing them out of their sanctuaries.
He advised Nigerians to keep an eye on their surroundings and report any suspicious activity to the proper authorities.
