Buhari Sends 1000 Security Personnel To Zamfara

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the deployment of 1,000 security personnel to Zamfara state to stem the killings in the state.

Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, who made this disclosure in a press statement on Sunday said the troop comprises Air force, Civil defence, police, among others.

“The president has also authorised the engagement by NAF, of advanced satellite surveillance technology to help in accurate detection of movement and locations of the bandits,” he added.

“The government had to go to this extent because of the limitations of conventional surveillance, as the use of satellite technology could make the task of NAF less problematic.”

The Presidential Spokesman also cautioned opponents against reducing security to “petty politics”, saying that “doing so could only embolden the terrorists and other murderous gangs.”
