The Northern Patriots, a political pressure group, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari “for providing the leadership and enabling environment for the significant achievement by the Nigerian military in putting an end to the reign of Boko Haram insurgents in Sambisa Forest.”

Reacting to the feat recorded by the troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in clearing the remnants of Boko Haram insurgents at ‘Camp Zero’ located deep within the heart of Sambisa Forest, the group declared that President Buhari has by this development successfully delivered one of his campaign promises of defeating Boko Haram.

“Before now, we were bedevilled with insurgency in the North-East. We are happy the situation has been finally contained by our gallant soldiers. There’s however the urgent need to extend similar commitment in ending the incessant clashes between farmers and herdsmen, banditry, militancy and kidnappings,” the Northern Patriots said on Monday.

The group in a statement signed by its Director General Ismail Sani advocated for an improved community policing as a way of stopping crime before it occurs. “It is only when the community and the police agree to work together that the people can trust and volunteer information and assistance to help prevent crime, and at the same time arrest criminals, easily,” the Northern Patriots said.

While re-echoing the call for a constitutional responsibility for traditional rulers in view of the significant role they play in maintaining law and order in their domains, the group appealed to Nigerians to eschew violence and love one another irrespective of religious, tribal or political differences.
