Nigerian President Muhammad Buhari has ordered airstrikes against bandits,kidnappers and cattle rustlers, who he said had been attacking remote communities around Dogon Gona Forest in Niger State.

The President said the rest of the country will not abandon the affected Fulani Herdsmen that suffered from cattle rustlers, bandits and kidnappers.

The President said the repeated attacks leading to the loss of several lives in the communities “was a disaster for the nation.”

The Nigerian Airforce inline withe the directive said it is setting up refuelling facilities at Minna, Niger State, to support aircraft operations.

Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the Police Command in Niger had equally given assurances that the planned dedicated air raids to complement the police helicopter gunship operations remain the best approach given the lack of motorised roads in the areas constantly under attack.

It is interesting to observe that Fulani Herdsmen attacked Ruboi Village under Bokkos local government of plateau state several hours ago and the Nigerian army or police force were not to be found , while many villagers were being slaughtered.

      You are almost there , the full detail is that the rustlers and bandits attacked fulani herdsmen, and the president ordered air raids.
      This was to protect the herdsmen.
      Since the inception of this government, fulani herdsmen have been killing and maiming there fellow citizens, how many are raids have Buhari ordered against them? Rather like the one in plateau state, he will warn the victims not to retaliate.
