The Min­is­ter of In­te­rior, Rauf Aregbesola, says the grow­ing in­flu­ence of armed ban­dits in the North West of Nige­ria is now a ma­jor con­cern and chal­lenge to the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment.

A state­ment by Mo­hammed Manga, the Di­rec­tor (Press & Pub­lic Re­la­tions) in the min­istry, said Aregbesola said this at a town hall meeting with stake­hold­ers on mat­ters of in­ter­nal se­cu­rity and con­flict res­o­lu­tion in Katsina, Katsina State yes­ter­day.

He as­sured that the to­tal, bru­tal and fe­ro­cious might of the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment would soon be brought on them.

“The Nige­rian se­cu­rity ma­chine will be un­leased in its fury,” he said.
