Apparently elated over the proactive measures taken recently to rescue kidnapped victims, the Coalition for Peace and National Unity said it is left with no option than to commend the National Security Adviser, Mal. Nuhu Ribadu and other security agencies for tackling security challenges and stabilizing the country.

According to the group, the recent release of hostages kidnapped by bandits the hard work, and tireless efforts to ensure the release of the school pupils and other kidnapped victims rescued within good time is a great feat worthy of commendation.

“We are beginning to see that the Security Situation is gradually improving in northern Nigeria compared to what used to be obtainable in the past when daredevil Boko Haram insurgents and bandits had field day operating unhindered, especially in the north.” The group stated.

The Coalition for Peace and National Unity, which made the commendations in a press statement signed by the Secretary General of the group, Dr. Abdullahi Musa Ringim, said, “We are highly impressed by the rescue of the 15 Tsangaya students kidnapped at a Qur’anic school in Sokoto State, who regained their freedom; the rescued students of the Federal University Gusau from terrorists that invaded the student’s campus accommodation and the rescue of 137 Kuriga pupils abducted more than three weeks ago from their school in Kaduna. It is a great feat worthy of commendation. ”

It also applaudedd the military operations that led to the killing of the most notorious bandits leaders in Zamfara and Katsina States and scores of their fighters.

The group said though there is still work to do on issues of insecurity challenges, especially in the north, the proactive measures taken recently have yielded positive results with the hope that the fight against banditry and Boko Haram insurgents will soon be history.

While urging the office of NSA and security agencies to adopt strategic proactive measures to fight against all forms of criminalities across the country, especially banditry and Insurgency, it posited, “At this juncture, and from our comparative analysis as well as records obtained by our research unit, we are left with no option than to commend Federal government for efforts taken so far to tackle prolonged security challenges in the country with the last eight months of Tinubu’s administration”.

According to the group, a survey carried out recently revealed that the security situation has tremendously improved in northern Nigeria compared to what used to be obtained in the past during the days of President Goodluck Jonathan and President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Buhari made several promises to address Nigeria’s chronic security problems But failed to effectively address them. Bandits attacked military locations, kidnapped hundreds of school students, and abducted travelers. They even bombed a train and abducted passengers.

” The bandit groups existed across the north-west region and Niger State. These groups were economically driven. When they are not kidnapping for ransom, they exploit the lack of state presence to impose taxes and protection levies on rural communities.

“But noted that across the 19 Northern according to research conducted by the group, in states like Kaduna; Sokoto, Zamfara, and Katsina, the nefarious activities and attacks by bandits must be contained without any consideration.

“It is no longer news that as a country, we have witnessed unprecedented security challenges such as Boko Haram Terrorists attacks, militancy, armed robbery, banditry, kidnapping for ransom, Fulani-Herders farmers clashes, cultism among other social vices, but now that federal government has a sense of commitment to ensuring that Nigerians can go to bed with their two eyes closed, we should the government to succeed. “
