President Muhammadu Buhari has said bandits are living in a fool’s paradise, if they think they cannot be crushed by Nigerian troops.

The President said this while reacting to the killing of 15 persons in Illela and Goronyo local government areas of Sokoto State by bandits.

He assured Nigerians that his administration would not abandon them to their fate.

From late Sunday to early Monday morning, bandits attacked the two local government areas, killing 12 persons in Illela and three in Goronyo.

In a statement yesterday from South Africa by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, President Buhari warned that “this needless and mindless violence against innocent people cannot go unpunished”.

He added: “This persistent and unprovoked violence against unarmed civilians must be met with fierce response by the government.

“Let me, once again, reassure Nigerians that this administration will not abandon them to their fate in the face of this existential challenge caused by banditry.

“We are taking delivery of military equipment to improve the capacity of our security forces to effectively deal with this issue.

“Our military is also deploying advanced technology to enhance surveillance and related operations to locate and crush these criminals and enemies of our common humanity.

“This administration will not tolerate this state of affairs where criminals deprive the people of their means of livelihoods and turn them into beggars and refugees. The bandits are living in a fool’s paradise, if they believe that they can’t be crushed.

“The criminals cannot be lucky always; they will ultimately meet their Waterloo. Evil cannot triumph over good, no matter how long it takes.”
