Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, on Wednesday, said bandits terrorizing the state will be defeated.
Speaking during a visit by the Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, the governor said his administration would not allow bandits to disrupt the education system.
NAN reported that the governor commended security agencies for their battle against banditry and insurgency in Nigeria.
El-Rufai said, “We are confident that we shall win the fight against banditry, we are sure that our schools will remain functional.”
He recalled the agreement of a stakeholders meeting held on Tuesday, saying “We agreed that only the most vulnerable schools should be shut down, because they cannot be easily accessed due to the terrain of their location.”
The Chief of Air Staff disclosed that his visit was to assess the preparedness of the Air Training Command, whose personnel are fighting the bandits in the North-West.
