Speaking during his meeting with the 36 state governors yesterday in Abuja, Buhari had said he would ensure the military eliminates kidnappers and bandits across the country.
His words, “We are thinking very hard on the issue of kidnapping. We will make it possible for the military to get to the bandits and kidnappers and eliminate them.”
