BREAKING: Shoot anyone carrying AK-47 – Buhari orders security agents

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered security agencies to shoot anyone carrying arms.

His spokesman, Garba Shehu, made the announcement in an interview with the BBC Hausa.

Buhari also directed suppression of bandits who refused to surrender.

“The president has ordered security forces to go into the bushes and shoot whoever they see with sophisticated weapons like AK-47,” Shehu said.

Bandits have been terrorizing Northwestern states in recent years. The outlaws engage in murders and kidnap for ransom.

Recall that Ortom and Mohammed had clashed over a comment made by the Bauchi Governor that Fulani herdsmen should be allowed to carry AK-47 for self protection.
