Army ready for miscreants in Birnin Gwari – Buratai

Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Yusuf Buratai has said that his men and officers were ready to collaborate with other security agencies in the country to dislodge miscreants hiding within the Birnin Gwari area of Kaduna state. Hoodlums operating along the axis had been causing havoc to innocent Nigerians on the Kaduna expressway.

Speaking to State House Correspondents shortly after a meeting with President Mohammadu Buhari at the presidential villa, Abuja, General Buratai said concerns over unabated killing of citizens was what informed the setting up of an army battalion in the area to tackle the security situation along the axis and put a stop to the menace.
