President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, over the security situation in the country.
Speaking after the meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Buratai told journalists that the military needed civilian involvement if an end to insecurity was to be achieved.
He said 90 per cent of kidnappers, bandits and armed robbers are Nigerians.
President Buhari had on June 18 this year warned heads of the security agencies against any further escalation of the security situation in the country, telling them that their “best is not good enough”.
