President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a timely message to Governors of various state who are suffering the scourge of attacks from Falani herdsmen and bandits.
Gidipoint gathered that the President, while featuring on Arise TV, on Thursday, June 10, said that Governors are the Chief security Officers of their state and therefore should protect the citizens from herdsmen and bandits attack.
He also said that the Governors should find a lasting solution to the problem, adding that he can’t be everywhere at once.
He claimed that Governors are more aware of the criminals in their domain than himself, adding that they should not be idle complaining about their challenges.
He said, “You know these people more than I do, and you are democratically elected to protect your people. Don’t sit idly expecting me to do everything, take action.”
Recall that in the past few weeks there have been reports in different parts of the country of bandits attack, with the recent one happening in Igangan, Oyo State.
The attack left no fewer than 20 persons dead. Another attack occurred in Niger State some weeks ago, in the attack, 7 members of a family were slaughtered.
