I’ll punish security chiefs if another abduction Takes place – Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday stated he would not spare the rod if security chiefs allow any abduction to happen under their watch again, PUNCH reports. 
While directing the top military brass to beef up security around all schools, the President also warned those “politicising” security issues, to desist from it or face the wrath of the law.
Buhari who disclosed this while receiving the released Dapchi girls and their parents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said:“The security services have since been directed to put in place further measures around all schools vulnerable to attacks to ensure the safety of our pupils/students and teachers and school workers.
“I have tasked all the security agencies to work to ensure that we do not witness any recurrence of these incidents.
“Security chiefs have been warned in clear terms that any lapse on their parts will be viewed seriously,” he said.
As for those who he referred to as “politicising the security situation in the country”, Buhari urged them to “desist or face the wrath of security agencies.”
“This country has suffered enough of hostility. Government is therefore appealing to all to embrace peace for the overall development of our people and the country. May I also warn against those elements who have chosen to make political fortune of our citizens’ misfortune.
"Government would not tolerate any attempt by any person or group to trivialize or politicize security issues for politically motivated ends. Accordingly, security agencies would not hesitate to decisively deal with such unscrupulous characters”.
President Muhammadu Buhari made all this known to everyone present while receiving the Dapchi schoolgirls who were released on Wednesday by Boko Haram.
