President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigeria’s President has said he wonders how Boko Haram insurgents still survive.
President Buhari said this while speaking on Wednesday with Borno state residents during his visit to sympathize with the state government over the recent attack by Boko Haram insurgents in Auno Konduga Local government.
He said without the support of the locals in Borno State, the Boko Haram insurgents won’t be able to carry out their activities.
In his words, “Boko Haram or whatever they are cannot come to Maiduguri or its environs without the local leadership knowing, the local leadership is in charge of security in their own respective areas.
“With my understanding of our culture, I wonder how Boko Haram survives up to this end.
“As the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, I campaigned in 2015 and last year on three fundamental issues which include security as you cannot preside over an institution or a country if it is not secured.
“We are working for you in this country; as Commander-in-Chief, I am dealing with the security institutions and I believe there is an improvement in security.
“I urge the people of the state to cooperate with the law enforcement agencies; let us deny Boko Haram access to our loyal citizens and encourage displaced people to go back to their land”.
