President Muhammadu Buhari has once again used the controversial term “treat them in the language they understand’ but this time against bandits terrorising the north-west region of the country.

The president declared this during an interview with Arise TV broadcast on Thursday.

“Problem in the north-west; you have people over there stealing each other’s cattle and burning each other’s villages. Like I said , we are going to treat them in the language they understand. We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless. You watch it in a few weeks’ time there will be difference.”

”Because we told them if we keep people away from their farm, we are going to starve. And the government can’t control the public. If you allow hunger, the government is going to be in trouble and we don’t want to be in trouble. We are already in enough trouble. So we warn them sooner than later you’ll see the difference.”

The statement ”treat them in the language they understand” caused uproar in the country, as many believed it was a threat targeted at Igbo people due to the president referencing of the civil war.
