President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his readiness to combat crime and criminality in the land. This was affirmed today after he presided over a Security meeting that had in attendance Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and all serving Service Chiefs.
President Buhari released this on his Facebook page today:
One of the resolutions from our Security Council Meeting today is that all our law enforcement agencies must take intelligence-gathering and sharing much more seriously. The Police and DSS especially have been charged to step up their efforts and capacity in this regard. Our law enforcement agencies must at all times stay ahead of bandits and criminals, wherever they are across the country, by efficiently gathering, sharing and acting on credible Intelligence. I am assuring that we will give them all the support needed to succeed.
Let me also assure that all persons arrested so far, including those arrested for illegally possessing arms, will be duly prosecuted. I urge judicial officers to be alive to responsibilities in this regard, to enable the speedy dispensation of justice.
