President Muhammadu Buhari has called on communities and security forces to be more alert in view of the unpredictable security situation in parts of the country.

Expressing worries about heightened insecurity in the country, he called on security agencies and communities under threats of bandits’ attacks and kidnappings to be more vigilant and alert in the light of the latest incidents in Enugu, Zamfara, Adamawa, Katsina and Kaduna States.

A presidency statement signed by Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media & Publicity) said, on Thursday, that Buhari’s call was a response to “the recent reports of heightened acts of violence and kidnappings after a period of relative inactivity.”

It quoted the President as saying that: “In view of the unpredictability of the security situation, our security forces and the communities affected should be ever more alert because these murderous and remorseless criminals would take advantage of your complacency and strike again.”

The statement further quoted the President saying: “The bandits should under no circumstances be allowed to hold the country to ransom on account of security loopholes which they seek to exploit to strike at their victims.

“The criminals always look for loopholes in our security system in order to remain in business and active, but we shouldn’t give them the space to achieve this diabolical objective by pre-empting them.”

President Buhari added that: “Complacency is a hidden or unnoticed enemy that we shouldn’t take for granted because doing so could weaken our strategies.”

The President, however, noted that the affected communities also have a responsibility to help the security agencies with the critically important human intelligence in order to stop the bandits in their tracks. (Nigerian Tribune)
