Boko Haram Bombings: Buhari sends “powerful delegation” to Adamawa, Borno

Buhari in France

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent a powerful delegation to two states, Adamawa and Borno States to condole with their governments and people over the increased bombing activities by Boko Haram terrorists.

The delegation made a strong appeal to local populations to share in the responsibility for security in their surroundings, the presidency said in a statement.

“The President, who spoke through the leader of the delegation, Engineer Babachir David Lawal, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation,SGF directed all communities in the country to revert to old practices by which new arrivals in their neighbourhoods were taken note of by local chiefs and security agencies,” Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity said in a statement Sunday.

Mr. Shehu added, “Going down the memory lane, the President recalled that these were practices that worked well in past in securing neighbourhoods and local communities.” The ward head, the village head and the local police knew every new entrant into the community. They kept tabs on them and detected traits of criminality before evil-doers get the chance to act against common interest.

“We must go back to those rudimentary acts of local policing,” the President reiterated, adding that the job of securing our life and property is too important to be left to security officials alone.

“We must help them to do their job.The responsibility of detecting criminals lies with all of us. In this new phase of the war, all of us are generals, all of us are foot soldiers, all of us are intelligence officers.”
