Buhari Orders Service Chiefs to Guard the Unity of Nigeria 

Service chiefs in Nigeria were on Tuesday ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure the country is not divided by any individual or group.
This position was made known by the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Abayomi Olonisakin, while speaking with State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to Olonisakin, “In his address, the President talked about the unity of the nation which is non-negotiable. We have all been fully instructed to ensure that, that directive is carried out to the letter.
“President Buhari was specific in his directive that security chiefs ensure that the life and property of Nigerians are protected.
“We were also directed to ensure that we secure the nation and also that troops that are outside the country carry out their jobs effectively.
“We also updated President Buhari on all security issues within and outside the country where the nation’s troops are.
“All security threats were treated one after the other ranging from terrorism to kidnapping, herdsmen/farmers clash, to IPOB issue.
“They were all treated. Comments were made as to what to do as regards those issues.
“Every security issue, like I said, has been treated and we are going to enhance our operations in all the areas we need to do that. Like I said, he has given the necessary directives which will be carried out by the military and the security agencies.”
