While addressing stakeholders, with the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, who was also present at the meeting, The President called on the police force to remain vigilant in securing communities so as to stem the wave of violence across the country. He said:
“The Nigerian police are in the frontline of securing communities. For the judiciary, unless the investigations are credible and rapidly done, there is nothing they can do. From now on the Nigeria police, you better watch it, I am going to watch you closely.”
Buhari, who gave the warning on Tuesday, also said he would not fold his arms and allow those responsible for the recent killings in parts of Kaduna State to go unpunished.
