“We’ve Successfully Tackled Security Across Nigeria, Recent Cries Are Political” – Tukur Buratai

July 16, 2019

Despite evidence that many Nigerians are being killed and kidnapped by gunmen across the nation on a regular basis, the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, has insisted that security agencies have successfully tackled the security situation.

The Army Chief said security officials have recorded ‘great success’ in the fight against insecurity.

Buratai stated this during a visit to the troops stationed at 1 Division Super Camp in Kuyello, Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State on Monday.

He described the recent cries of insecurity across Nigeria as a ‘political game’ and warned that those playing politics with the security situations in the country should desist, adding that the army would not hesitate to take action against them.

”Apart from some isolated remote areas as a result of some other factors, the attacks have drastically reduced.

”That means we are winning and it is a great success which people should be assured.

”All these cries of insecurity which some groups and individuals are taking it as a political game I think they should have a rethink because it is no longer the case,” he said.

The lieutenant-general emphasised that he believes the security situation across the country has improved.

”Insecurity has been tamed right now in the northeast and in the northwest; and even in other areas we are doing so well.

”Our troops are deployed in support of the government, civil police and indeed the civil authorities,” he said.

He commended the troops for the success recorded so far and urged them to remain focused.
