Tukur Buratai, the chief of army staff, has threatened that the military would not hesitate to take action against against those he said are playing politics with insecurity in Nigeria, saying the army has recorded “great success” in the fight against insecurity.
Buratai said this when he visited the troops stationed at 1 division super camp in Kuyello, Birnin Gwari local government area of Kaduna State on Monday, noting that the military had reduced insecurity in the country.
According to him, there have been no major attacks in the last three weeks because of the new strategy.
He said, “Apart from some isolated remote areas as a result of some other factors, the attacks have drastically reduced,” Buratai said.
“That means we are winning and it is a great success which people should be assured. All these cries of insecurity which some groups and individuals are taking it as a political game I think they should have a rethink because it is no longer the case.
“Insecurity has been tamed right now in the northeast and in the northwest and even in other areas we are doing so well. Our troops are deployed in support of the government, civil police and indeed the civil authorities.”
