The group said the dastard act has led to the death of hundreds of innocent people, especially in the northern part of the country.

The group's publicity secretary, Muhammad Ibrahim Biu, in a statement issued on Thursday, April 4, said the federal government should reexamine its security apparatus and take adequate measures that would increase the number of police personnel.

ACF called on the security agencies to employ new strategies and intelligence gathering needed to effectively smoke-out the kidnappers and bandits from their enclaves and hideouts. It said the police force should deploy more personnel to the affected states and highways to not only repel attacks but go after the perpetrators and bring them to book.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday, April 11, met with service chiefs in a close door meeting at the State House around 11am.

After the meeting, the president asked the security agencies to be on top of the security situations in the country and deal ruthlessly with bandits, kidnappers.
