President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the senate explaining steps he has taken on the killings perpetrated by herdsmen across the country.
in a letter read by senate president Bukola Saraki, the president took exception to senate’s position that he had done nothing so far to address the country’s failing security infrastructure.
the letter stated that it is incorrect for the senate to say that he has not done anything about the killings. He said that the police are working to apprehend those behind the attacks.
he added that the federal government is putting in place measures to forestall the reoccurrence of further killings in benue and other parts of the country.
he said that he had instructed the inspector general of police to “relocate to benue state and redeploy forces to the most sensitive towns, adding that the federal government “is initiating measures to address these and other security challenges, alleviate the consequence of these attacks and forestall reoccurrence.
