Insecurity: Buhari urges Nigerians to volunteer information to security agencies


President Muhammadu  Buhari has called for the support of the public in volunteering credible information and intelligence to security agents on the activities of bandits, insurgents and other criminal elements within their communities.

The president who made the call in his Christmas message to Nigerians reaffirmed the commitment of his administration to providing security to all Nigerians.

“I plead with fellow compatriots to give our military and other security agencies more time, cooperation and support by volunteering credible intelligence/information on activities of armed bandits, insurgents and other criminal elements within their communities in order to put an end to this blight on our security landscape”

“To be sure, the problems are beyond the simplistic options being bandied around. We shall remain focused on following the complex, multi-dimensional route to reducing the incidents of insecurity to the barest minimum. Our people must be free to live and move without let or hindrance. This is crucial not only to enthroning an atmosphere of calm and social cohesion, but for the economy to grow”

The president promised to continue to provide the needed support to the armed forces and other security agencies as they confront threats to Nigerians and urged them to do more to checkmate increasing insecurity especially in the northern parts of the country as well as the entire country.

He commended the military and other security agencies for their display of tact, camaraderie, and expertise that led to the recent return of abducted schoolboys of Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina state saying the rescue of the children  will remain a milestone in the annals of the country
