Insurgency: Buhari urges Nigerians to be security conscious

01 December 2014, 14:41

Kano - Former military Head of State and APC presidential aspirant, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has urged Nigerians to be security conscious so as to curb the activities of insurgents in the country.

Buhari made the call while speaking with newsmen shortly after he visited victims of Friday’s bomb attack at the Murtala Muhammed Hospital in Kano on Sunday.

"There is nothing we can do about it other than for people to be more vigilant and security conscious.

"There is the need for people to be more vigilant at mosques, churches and schools, as well as wherever they may find themselves,’’ he said.

The former Nigerian leader, however, called on Nigerians to support security agencies in their bid to check the dastard acts being perpetrated by the insurgents.

"I hope security agents’ efforts will be fully complemented by the civil society in checking the insurgency,’’ he said.

Buhari, who condoled the government and people of Kano state over the unfortunate incident, prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured persons.
