As part of measures to ensuring security in Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday approved the establishment of a new battalion of the Nigerian Army and a new police command as well.
In a statement disclosed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Gabar Shehu, Buhari condemned the latest massacre of innocent Nigerians in the area.
His words, “I am deeply outraged by this unwarranted, unprovoked and reckless destruction of lives by bandits who belong to the lowest level of civilization. I feel the pains and devastation of the families of the victims, and this administration will do everything possible to ensure we defeat these enemies of humanity.
“These persistent killings are not spontaneous; there are subterranean forces with a sinister agenda to instigate war in the country for selfish purposes.
“Although unconventional war is particularly complicated, our security forces are making rigorous efforts to better understand these enemies with a view to decisively checkmating their evil attacks.”
The new Army Battalion and the Police Area Command are the latest in a series of law enforcement measures to ensure more effective protection of lives and property, in and around Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Zamfara and Nasarawa States.
