The President noted that the military and other security agencies are now working on new methods and policies that are yielding good results in many of the troubled parts of the country and called for a crushing response to the killing of innocent citizens in the rural communities.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President expressed sorrow over the loss of innocent lives, urging security agencies to do everything possible to prevent the recurrence of attacks with impunity.

He also averred that the nation, its military and the entire population needed to summon the courage required to defeat the bandits and terrorists.

President Buhari condemned some politicians making utterances on security, saying they were merely seeking applause. He advised them to join the ongoing genuine efforts aimed at finding lasting solutions to the challenges confronting the nation.
