Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress has said President Muhammadu Buhari has the ability to crush Boko Haram and bandits ravaging the North.
Tinubu made this call on Friday, January 14, during his visit to the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle in Gusau, the state capital, on Thursday.
He, however, claims that insurgents and other criminal elements can only be eliminated through a commitment from Nigerians.
The All Progressives Congress, APC, National Leader was in Gusau to commiserate with the governor over the recent killings in the state.
Last week, about 200 people were killed when bandits raided some villages; in Bukkuyum and Anka Local Government Areas of the state.
However, Tinubu said, “I could offer prayers for the people from anywhere; but coming in person is important. The enemies of knowledge, Boko Haram and other criminal elements will be defeated; through a commitment to humanity.
“We pray for the entire country to be stable and if the enemies refuse to stop the carnage, we shall eliminate them.
“We believe in President Muhammadu Buhari’s ability to restore law and order; and bring back our country to stability and tracks of development.”
Meanwhile, the Amotekun Security Corps has vowed to continue to secure lives and properties in the South-West region even if the Federal Government refuses to assent to the creation of the State Police.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Amotekun Corps Commander in Ekiti State, Brig. Gen. Joe Komolafe (retd) on Wednesday, January 13, who said President Muhammadu Buhari’s position on state police would not deter the outfit from securing the state and beyond.
The commander, who spoke with Vanguard, said without the presence of state government police; the creation of Amotekun has filled the void with a reduction in crime rates.
Komolafe, however, said for security reasons; he would not disclose the strategies and plans to be used in securing the state.
He said: “Let me tell you that with or without state police; we have been securing the state, there is no doubt about this.
“We will continue to do this across the region because our people must be able to go about their activities; without any fear of being attacked.”
