The president of the group in a statement, commended the Chief of Army Staff for his courage in leading the war against banditry through ingenious ways.
“He has displayed passion for service to the country such as coordinating the battles from the front and entrenching a regime of collaboration with sister security agencies in the country.
“This has resulted in coordinated and strategic efforts at ridding the country of bandits and criminal activities.
“We also commend officers and soldiers of the Nigerian Army for their gallant displays in taking the battle to the bandits in their enclaves, dislodging them and liberating communities from their nefarious activities.
“This is commendable, and an indication that in no distant time, activities of bandits and other criminal elements will be a thing of the past.
