He, however, assured Nigerians that the present administration will do all it takes to decisively tackle the menace.
The President further stated that his greatest concern is the threat to life posed by the murderous gangs and remorseless outlaws who have no regard for the sanctity of life.
Extending his sympathy to the families of the affected victims, he called on the nation’s security forces to be more proactive and increase their efforts in order to frustrate the operational plans of the terrorists before they launch any attacks.
