Buhari ask service chiefs to take proactive steps to conquer insecurity
President Muhammadu Buhari in a meeting with service chiefs this morning ordered them to take proactive steps to take out bandits, kidnappers, and their sponsors.
The National Security Adviser (NSA) Major-General Babagana Monguno while briefing state house correspondents after the meeting quoted the president as saying that the armed forces should be more proactive rather than reactionary.
Monguno said the president also insisted that all the decisions approved at the national security council meeting in February remain enforced. The decisions include a ban on mining activities in Zamfara and the no-fly order imposed on the state.
The president was quoted to have said the reign of terror unleashed by bandits and kidnappers must be ended immediately.
