By Jane Okafor, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari Saturday condemned repeated bandit killings in Zamfara and Kaduna States, urging the nation’s military to respond to the worrying situation in a language that the bandits understand.
Bandits had in a coordinated attacks on Thursday evening killed 42 people in five communities of Faru district in Maradun Local Government Area of Zamfara State. 

The affected communities are Tsauni, Gudan-Baushi, Gidan-Adamu, Wari and Gudan-Maidawa. 

The bandits who were riding over 100 motorcycles invaded the communities located few kilometres at the eastern part of Faru town.

He expresses the nation’s sorrow over the loss of lives, urging security agencies to do everything possible to prevent the recurrence of attacks with impunity.
Meanwhile, the President has expressed sadness over the demise of his classmate in college and a prominent community leader, Malam Muhammadu Ibrahim Maigari otherwise known as Muhammadu Musawa.

My special condolences to his brothers, Alhaji Yazid Ibrahim, Senator Abu Ibrahim and Barrister Yahaya Ibrahim,” the President said.
