Even as he prayed for the quick recovery of those that sustained injuries in the attacks, Buhari noted that “as the world and Nigeria battle Coronavirus pandemic, it is tragic and unfortunate that bandits have remained active in parts of the country, killing innocent people and throwing families into despair.

“We will not abandon you to your fate because we are determined to bring these mass murderers to their knees and crush them totally.’’

The President also noted that a major military operation code-named “Operation Accord” was launched by the military, targeting the bandits that had been tormenting North-West and North Central States.

“This operation will be a full time and sustained military offensive that is intended to deny the bandits any breathing space to reorganize and regroup”, he stated.

In a statement issued by his media assistant, Garba Shehu, theme President further reassured Nigerians that the government was determined to protect them against “remorseless psychopathic mass killers who have no regard for the sanctity of life.’’
