The Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Isiaka Amao, has vowed that kidnapping and banditry in the North West will soon be over.
Speaking during an operational visit to the Nigerian Airforce Base in Kaduna State, he warned the criminals to prepare for the worst.
He stated that the military would go after bandits and kidnappers in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to bring back sanity and allow farmers to go to their farms without fear.
Amao, who gave an assurance that the military was ready to deal decisively with bandits, terrorists, and other criminals disturbing the peace in the country, also promised that the welfare of personnel of the Nigerian Air Force would be accorded a top priority in order to boost their morale in the line of duty.
The Christian Association of Nigeria has called on the Federal Government and the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed to intervene in the ongoing violence over the hijab policy which according to the association has led to violence and bloodletting in Kwara State.
CAN in a statement issued by its General Secretary, Joseph Bade Daramola, said Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, should be held responsible if the matter degenerates.
According to the Association, the governor’s pronouncement on the issue of hijab-wearing is in violation of the court directive on the matter that the status quo should be maintained until the matter is resolved by the court.
The statement said there are public schools and schools that belong to some Islamic organisations where those who wanted to be wearing hijab can be attending without causing the ongoing needless crises rocking the state.”
The Christian association called on Governor Abdulrazaq to give peace a chance in the state by ordering hoodlums attacking mission schools and churches in the state to stop before the situation degenerates into an unprecedented religious crisis.
