President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari has ordered  security operatives to arrest and prosecute anyone found with illegal arms in the country.

This is an action taken to cub the killings of innocent citizens by suspected herdsmen in the country. Buhari ordered during his one-day working visit to Lafia, Nasarawa state to commission projects executed by Governor Umaru Tanko Almakura that “all attacks by suspected herdsmen will no longer be tolerated in north central and elsewhere in Nigeria.”

Buhari stated that his administration was doing everything possible within its capacity to ensure the security of lives and property in the north central and the country at large. “We have deployed special resources to all affected areas to ensure peace and safety of lives. I therefore appeal to all Nigerians to refrain from reprisal attack as the government is on top of the situation.”

He said his administration would stop at nothing to deliver its change mandate to the electorate in the fight against corruption, insecurity and employment generation for the teaming youths.

“I, therefore, condole with those affected by this barbaric act of killings,” he said.
