When contacted to comment on reports that the bandits being dislodged from Zamfara State were fleeing to other states, especially southern states, the Director of Defence Information, Major General Benjamin Sawyerr, neither confirmed nor denied the reports.
He said, “Operations are ongoing. Tactics and strategies are not to be divulged at this moment.
“The operations are being conducted in line with the operational directives as well as contingencies.
“The North-Central, North-East and the North-West will soon have reasons to thank the Armed Forces of Nigeria for a job well done.”
He, however, declined to answer further questions put to him on the matter.
