President Bola Tinubu has been advised by Ayo Adebanjo, the leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural group Afenifere, not to handle insecurity in the same way as his predecessor, former President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated that instead of using marching orders like Buhari, Tinubu should take action against insecurity.
Speaking about the recent attacks in the state, he did so on Wednesday during a condolence visit to Jo’s home of the late Chief Solomon Lar, the first National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party and a former governor of Plateau State.
According to a reliable source, on Christmas Eve, a few terrorists assaulted a few local government areas in the state, including Barkin Ladi, Mangu, and Bokkos.
During the tragedy, some 150 individuals died and numerous others were injured.
To address insecurity, Adebanjo asserted, Tinubu had to apprehend and bring charges against the murderers.
“When Buhari was in office, we said he was behind those killing Nigerians. We told him that those killing us are in his government, House Representatives and the Senate.
“When the killings happened, he would say he has given marching orders. We want action and not marching orders. In the end, nothing happens. No arrest even after our complaints.
“Now, we have another President. And we are faced with the same security challenge. We want action from President Tinubu and not marching orders.
“Anybody who wants to impress Nigerians must go after those behind the killings. They must be arrested and prosecuted if he wants the problem to be solved,” he said.
