President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the service chiefs to “take out” bandits, kidnappers, and their sponsors.
The president warned that the reign of terror unleashed on parts of the country by bandits and kidnappers is no longer acceptable.
He issued the directive during his meeting with the service chiefs at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.
The meeting held ahead of Buhari’s impending travel to the United Kingdom (UK).
Buhari, the presidency said on Monday, will leave Nigeria for London today where he is scheduled for a “routine” medical checkup.
Meanwhile, Nigerian doctors have threatened to go on strike over the poor state of healthcare in the country.
