Fighting Insurgency: Buhari Orders Security Agencies To ‘Deal Decisively’ With Rampaging Herdsmen


The president directs the military to 'deal decisively' with anyone or group seeking to undermine the nation's unity.
President Muhammadu Buhari has also affirmed the government's resolved to rebuild destroyed communities in the North East and Niger Delta.

Speaking at a meeting with members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), he confirmed that heads of national security agencies have been ordered to take all necessary action to apprehend and expose those behind the heinous attacks, spokesman Femi Adesina said in a statement.
The Bishops were led by Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos.
“We are determined to secure all Nigerians and I have told the Inspector-General of Police and other security agencies, in very strong terms, to deal decisively with the attackers,” the President told them.
The reassurance comes against the background of reports of continued attacks on communities across the country by armed herdsmen.

Speaking on other national issues, he assured the Bishops that he was acting with deliberation and moving methodically to implement his change agenda for the good of the country.
“We need to rebuild our institutions methodically, we need to change the way we do things,” he stated.
"In the last 10 years, crude oil sold for more than $100 per barrel, but Nigeria did not save.  That is why we have found ourselves where we are today.”
The President assured bishops that his administration was working very hard to fulfill all the promises it had made to Nigerians, adding that his greatest motivating factor is the desire to bring positive change to Nigeria.
