The President Of the Federal Republic Of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari granted a live interview today on Arise TV.
News Rain Nigeria recalls that this is his second media chat since his second term to Arise Tv.
According to reports, President Muhammadu Buhari says he has given the military and the police the order to “be ruthless” against bandits terrorising the northwest region of the country.
“Problem in the north-west; you have people over there stealing each other’s cattle and burning each other’s villages. Like I said, we are going to treat them in the language they understand. We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be a difference.”

”Because we told them if we keep people away from their farm, we are going to starve. And the government can’t control the public. If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference.”
Recall that the statement ”treat them in the language they understand” became controversial after the president tweeted referencing the civil war.
The president had warned insurrectionists against destroying the country.
But the tweet was removed by Twitter.
The federal government responded afterward by suspending the microblogging platform.
