President Muhammadu Buhari has given a marching order to security officials in response to insecurity throughout the nation caused by bandits and militants, stating they must not rest until all Nigerians are at peace.

Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Interior, made the announcement at the conclusion of the National Security Council (NSC) meeting at the State House in Abuja.

According to the minister, the president has instructed security officials to be on the alert and support the efforts being made to eradicate insurgency, banditry, abduction for money, and all other related crimes.

“The president said we are not yet where we should be; that Nigerians deserve to live in peace and that until we achieved that, we will not rest.”

Mr Aregbesola also said that the session reviewed the return of criminal activity along the Abuja-Kaduna roads, emphasising the significance of safety throughout the holiday season.

“The police and other security agencies had been mobilised to intensify surveillance, patrol in pursuit of the criminals. And it’s not only about Abuja and Kaduna. Yes, Abuja-Kaduna belt was discussed specifically, but we appreciated the fact that we are in the season of festivity.

“So, all agencies committed to providing security for Nigeria and the maintenance of law and order have been ordered to improve on their activities, intensify surveillance and minimise, if not eliminate totally, any threat to law and order anywhere in Nigeria,” he added.
