Following increased brutal attacks by Fulani herdsmen across the country which crystallised with recent attack on helpless Enugu communities, President Muhammadu Buhari has finally given a marching order to security agencies to bring the infamy to a decisive stop.
However, the president’s order has been greeted with widespread protests in London, United Kingdom, and Enugu, here in Nigeria.
He stated his administration’s resolve to deal decisively and expeditiously with reported cases of continued attacks on communities across the country by armed herdsmen.
A statement issued yesterday by his special adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, revealed that the president gave this order after a meeting he had with members of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN, which held in the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday night, in which the president confirmed that heads of national security agencies had been ordered to take all necessary actions to apprehend and expose those behind the heinous attacks.
“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,’’ he said.
President Buhari expressed his personal condolences to the Catholic Bishop of Enugu, the people of Ukpabi Nimbo and all other communities that had suffered fatalities and other losses from the recent attacks.
