The Presidency of Nigeria on Sunday said security forces are not helpless in stemming the tide of insecurity confronting the country.

In a statement, the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, reacted to the recent video of terrorists flogging the victims of the March 28 attack on a Kaduna-bound train.

He said the terrorists were deploying propaganda to compel the government to yield to their demands.

“It suffices to say that the security forces are not relenting. They are acutely aware of their duties, responsibilities, and what the nation expects of them. Whenever they embark upon those actions, they expect that the public should provide them with the needed support,” Shehu said in a statement.

In a fresh video, the terrorists threatened to kill the remaining abductees in their captivity and sell some off, a situation that renewed calls for the Federal Government to come to their rescue.

They also threatened to abduct President Muhammadu Buhari as well as Kaduna State Governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai.

Shehu said that the nation’s security forces are not helpless and will not display their tactics to the media.

As Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Shehu said President Muhammadu Buhari has been supporting security agencies by boosting their morale and providing the needed equipment.

He added, “The Presidency, in the meantime wishes to reassure the public that the President has done all, and even more than what is expected of him as Commander-in-Chief by way of morale, material and equipment support to the military and expects nothing short of good results in the immediate.”
