President Muhammadu Buhari will embark on tours of Taraba, Benue, Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers States over recent terrorist attacks, criminal activities and communal clashes in the affected states.

A statement by Mr Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, issued in Abuja on Monday, said the President decided on the visit after reviewing security reports on the incidents.

The presidential aide noted that the unfortunate incidents in the affected states had led to tragic loss of lives and kidnapping of innocent Nigerians including 110 schoolgirls.

Adesina recalled that the President had earlier directed the Armed Forces and other security agencies to compile comprehensive reports on the various incidents.

He said: “Having received and studied the reports, the President has decided to undertake an on-the-spot assessment of the various occurrences and to meet and console the communities affected.

“From today, March 5, he will visit Taraba, and subsequently Benue, Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers States.”

According to Adesina, President Buhari has been receiving daily briefings and is in constant touch with the Governors for update on the situations.

He quoted the President as calling on all Nigerians especially those in the affected areas, to cooperate fully with security agencies to enable them curb the spate of crimes, prevent further occurrence, arrest perpetrators and bring them to justice. (NAN)
