The Chief Defense of Staff, Lucky Irabor while speaking on the NTA Good Morning show said the declaration of bandits as terrorists has now given them the necessary power to take action against them.
“The issue of gazetting the bandits as terrorists is a news that is quite gladdening. That has always been what we had desired.
“What it means is that our tactics, techniques and procedures that we use in handling them certainly would have to change and that is why, I believe going forward, I am sure you will be reading what the outcome of those engagements are.
“Gazetting them as terrorists give it a global disposition that will enable other key global actors to now take certain action against them. For me, it will only get better and we will give them the bloody nose that they so desire.”
