The Presidency has reacted to a video of terrorists threatening to wreak havoc on the nation, saying security and defense forces were not “clueless or helpless”.
The terrorists had released a video where they threatened to kidnap President Muhammadu Buhari.
Reacting in a statement, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, reassured the public that the President had done all, and even more than what was expected of him as Commander-in-Chief by way of morale, material, and equipment support to the military and expected nothing short of good results in the immediate.
“Terrorism is a global scourge that must be fought by all actors- the military, the civilian population, and the communication service providers. This is the only way safe havens for terrorists are eliminated in every part of the world.
“To help the nation against the ongoing situation, the media must increase their support for the fight against the exploitation of the internet and social media for terrorist purposes.”
