The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai on Saturday said the Nigerian army will continue to be ruthless with criminals.

Buratai reiterated this when he visited the Army Super camp four, Faskari, which is the operational base of the troops in the Northwest.

He said the Army was ever determined to fish out and kill the bandits who have been terrorising the people until the country was completely rid of banditry.

According to him from July 6 to September 12 this year, hundreds of bandits were neutralised, others arrested, while a large number of informants were also arrested from Katsina, Sokoto, and Zamfara States under Operation Sahel Sanity.

He urged residents not to relent in disclosing the identities of criminals in their communities, insisting this would assist in ensuring security in the country.
