By Chesa Chesa

President Muhammadu Buhari has authorised the commencement of a major military operation to flush bandits and kidnappers out of Katsina, his home State.

A major proactive operation by Special Forces, which details are being kept secret, is now in progress to replace the reactive strikes against insurgent camps, revealed a statement issued on Sunday by his senior special assistant on media and publicity, Garba Shehu.

To give a full effect to the exercise, Shehu said that a planning team was already in the State selecting targets and making preparations for the execution of the “unprecedented” operation.

“The Chief of Defence Staff, General Gabriel Olonisakin, who has been measured in issuing official statements on the oncoming exercise, briefed the President on the plan he intends to flag off shortly.

“President Buhari who expressed sadness over the recent attacks in the State extended his condolences to the families of those killed and prayed for the recovery of the injured”, Shehu added.
