President Muhammadu Buhari has said bandits terrorising the North West have been declared as terrorists and they would be treated as such.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said bandits terrorising the North West have been declared as terrorists and they would be treated as such.

He said he has directed the security agencies to go after them.

Speaking during an interview with Channels TV, Buhari insisted that the Administration had made progress in tackling insecurity especially in the North East part of the country where the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists are holding sway.

The President reiterated that when his administration took over in 2015, many local governments were under the control of Boko Haram terrorists.

But as of now, he stated that no local government is under the control of terrorists.

Speaking further on the North West security, he said a progress has been made in the last six weeks after several meetings with service chiefs which lasted for several hours.
