Killings: Be patient, my security chiefs racking their brains – Buhari 

Olalekan Adetayo, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday urged Nigerians to be patient with him as his administration makes efforts to tackle ongoing killings in parts of the country.

He said members of his security teams were racking their brains to come up with a lasting solution.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President said this while condemning bandits’ killing of many people, including a district head, in and around Gandi village in  Rabah Local Government of Sokoto State.

“I wish to assure all Nigerians that their security is receiving the greatest attention from this administration and there is no compromise in this commitment.

“I appeal for your patience while my security teams crack (sic) their brains to put an end to this horrendous violence,” Shehu quoted Buhari as saying.

The President said his government would no longer tolerate violence against innocent Nigerians. He threatened that any attempt to try his government’s will would be met with equal force. He wondered why murderers would be targeting innocent people for no just cause.

The President said, “This wanton violence against innocent people won’t be tolerated by this government, and we are working round the clock to identify the people sponsoring these heartless attacks.

“It is curious why any group of mass murderers would be targeting and killing innocent people for no just reason.

“Make no mistake about it, my administration remains committed to security as one its core objectives, and any attempt to test our will by any group of anarchists and trouble makers will be met with equal force.

“Identifying and defeating these callous killers is receiving priority from this administration, and we shall spare no effort in tracing the root of this evil, especially their sources of funding and arms.”
