Following the incessant threat by Boko Haram Islamic insurgents and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) group led by Nnamdi Kanu, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday has directed that all Service Chiefs and Heads of Security operatives arrest all security threats against the unity of the country.

The marching order on security threats came after a closed-door meeting the service chiefs and other security agencies had with the President at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Briefing the State House correspondents after the meeting which lasted over three hours, Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, Lt General Gabriel Olonishakin said the directive was to protect the unity of the country as well as lives and property of the citizenry.

Lt. General Olonishakin said: “We have been meeting with Mr President for the last three hours. All we have done is to update him on all security issues around the country, within the country and outside the country where our troops are.”

“Of course, we have just updated him because he is aware of what’s been happening. He has been receiving regular briefings from the acting president and he has also been going through the print and electronic media to follow the happenings within the country.”

“After the meeting also, he has directed on some areas we should look at so as to enhance our operations in the country.”

“In his address, he talked about the unity of the nation, which is non-negotiable and the military has been fully instructed to ensure that the directive is carried out to the letter.”

Asking about the threat mounted by IPOB, the service Chief said.

“The issues of security, all security threats were treated one after the other.”

“Ranging from terrorism to kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers clash, to the IPOB issue, all were treated. Comments were made as to what to do regarding those issues.”

On the Boko Haram issue, the Security Chief said.

“On the Boko Haram issue, you all know it is an asymmetric warfare. It is not that the Boko Haram has stepped up its game, it is just the issue of suicide bombings that have been the problem. And of course, we are also working with the security agencies and the intelligence agencies to make sure that we address that menace.”
