In the northern part of the country, bandits and Boko Haram insurgents have carried out a series of violent attacks, as well as destruction of properties and abductions.
The development made many state governments in the north to develop stringent measures like shutting down telecommunications services and markers in a bid to contain the activities of bandits.
