President Muhammadu Buhari has given security chiefs in the country to always stay ahead of those who are causing trouble, including herdsmen, farmers, militia people and other criminals across the country.
In a personal tweet shortly after a crucial meeting he held with all the service chiefs and heads of other security organization today, Monday, at the Presidential Villa, President Buhari said: “our law enforcement agencies must at all times stay ahead of bandits and criminals, wherever they are across the country, by efficiently gathering, sharing and acting on credible Intelligence.
“I am assuring that we will give them all the support needed to succeed.”
The President insisted that all the law enforcement agencies must take intelligence-gathering and sharing much more seriously, adding that the Police and DSS (Department of State Security), especially, have been charged to step up their efforts and capacity in this regard.
“Let me also assure that all persons arrested so far, including those arrested for illegally possessing arms, will be duly prosecuted. I urge judicial officers to be alive to responsibilities in this regard, to enable the speedy dispensation of justice.”
