The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai has reiterated the Nigerian Army’s resolve to fully support the ongoing peace process between the Government of Zamfara State and the bandits to succeed.

Lt Gen TY Buratai made the remarks when he paid a courtesy visit to the Governor in Gusau, Zamfara state. He expressed confidence in the peace process as an opportunity for the unrepentant bandits to lay down their arms and key into the peace process. He used the opportunity to call on the bandits to hand over their weapons, otherwise they will be faced with aggressive and offensive operations.

General Buratai implored the general public to continue to support the Nigerian Army by providing credible information that can assist or enhance their operations.

Recall that the Army chief was just on Sunday and Monday 6th – 7th of October 2019 in the state on operational visit to the troops in 1 Brigade Area of Responsibility where he interacted with the troops fighting bandits, cattle rustlers, kidnappers and armed robbers as well as other forms of banditry in Zamfara and adjoining communities, and charged them to decisively deal with unrepentant criminals, adhere to extant Rules of Engagement and Code of Conduct as well as respect human rights of all law abiding citizens.
