Since taking office on May 29, 2023, it is his third. ⁎⁣⁣⁣The worst security threat to Nigeria is the banditry that is wreaking havoc in its North West and North Central regions, according to a recent assessment from the International Committee of the Red Cross.

⁏⁎Banditry and terrorism have put the North East and North West of Nigeria on edge, according to the account titled “The question of definition: Armed banditry in Nigeria’s North-West in the context of international humanitarian law.

“⁏⁎Although millions of people had been displaced and approximately 350,000 people had died as a result of terrorist attacks, at one point more people had died as a result of bandit activity than from Boko Haram militants.

Abubakar Badaru, the Minister of Defence, and Bello Mattawale, his Minister of State, were also in attendance.⁎⁣⁣⁣As of this report, none of the attendees had consented to speak with the media.
