He, however, assured that immediate measures were being taken to ensure that the loopholes, which led to the fatalities, were blocked once and for all.
Reacting to the tragic incident through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the
President said his administration remains ever committed and focused on
the security of military personnel and other citizens.
According to President Buhari, “No responsible Commander-in-Chief would
rest on his oars or fold his hands to allow terrorists to endanger the
lives of its military personnel and other citizens. Our loyal forces
have proved their strength over the terrorists and we are ready to give
them all the needed support in terms of equipment and manpower to
succeed in ending the renewed threat. In the coming days, I am engaging
the Military and Intelligence Chiefs in extensive discussions on the
next steps we shall be taking.”
The President further noted that fighting terrorism had taken a global
dimension, which necessitates international collaboration among states
facing similar security challenges.
President Buhari reassured Nigerians of his continued commitment to
their security and of his efforts to sustain the momentum in the
previous significant successes recorded against the terrorists.
He, however, advised Nigerians against making a political capital out of
national tragedy, stressing that members of the armed forces are one
family who are commonly committed to the security and safety of all
