President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered security agencies to deal ruthlessly with kidnappers across the country.
A clearly incensed president also directed them to check activities of “bandits terrorising” Zamfara state and its environs.
He gave the order at a two-hour meeting he had with the service chiefs and other heads of security agencies at the presidential villa, Abuja.
This was disclosed by Abayomi Olonishakin, chief of defence staff, in a chat with state house correspondents after the meeting.
Buhari had cut short his trip to Dubai following growing security concerns at home, particularly in Zamfara and his home state, Katsina.
