… praises Chief of Army for aggressive strategy in ending security threats
The Northern Security Crusaders (NSC) have warned sponsors and promoters of banditry in the northwest to desist from the act or risk being named and shamed.
The group also saluted the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai for once again raising up to the occasion with an aggresive approach despite conspiracy from some high-ranking Nigerians.
Scores of bandits have been killed while many others captured barely two weeks since the ‘Operation Sahel Sanity’ was launched in Katsina.
However, the Northern Security Crusaders believe some prominent politicians are already frustrating the efforts of the troops.
In a statement signed by its Director of Media and Strategy, Abubakar Usman, on Friday, the group warned these promoters and sponsors of insecurity to quit their nefarious activities or face the consequences.
Amidst the blackmail, NSC hailed the COAS’ impactful leadership which it said has led to the successes of the various military operations across the country, most recently in the northwest.
While expressing total support for the troops, NSC called on all patriotic citizens to do likewise in their quest to address politically motivated acts of criminalities.
