President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday charged heads of security agencies to end what he called the selective abductions and killings, particularly in the North-Central and North-West regions.
The president made the declaration even as he praised them for their efforts so far, which he said are yielding positive results in the North-East and South-East.
His position was made known to newsmen by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, after a security meeting with him.
The IGP said President Buhari also directed them to redouble their efforts to restore security across the country to enable citizens to go about their normal businesses.
According to the Police boss: “We should reinvigorate our efforts, which are yielding results in the North-East, South-East, but there is more to be done in the North-Central, North-West, where people are worried and he has intelligence and information that schoolchildren and students are abducted, selective abductions and killings are done. This narrative must change.
“We have assured the President and promised him that we’ll make efforts to do more. He also thanked and praised us for what has been done so far, that we should improve much so that people can go about their lawful businesses within the quickest possible means”.
He further said the President also reiterated his marching orders to the Security Chiefs, saying, “The new marching order is that all the Service Chiefs and intelligence chiefs have been warned to go and reinvigorate efforts and to do more so that the North-Central and Nigeria at large should enjoy better security”.
