In other news, a group, Save Humanity Advocacy Centre (SHAC) has tasked all relevant stakeholders and security experts across Nigeria to look inwards to find solutions that could complement military's quest to end terrorism, banditry and other criminal vices in the country.
SHAC said the solution to the threats posed by the Boko Haram terrorists and other militant groups rests in the hands of Nigerians and not international bodies.
The spokesperson for SHAC, Bayo Ogunseye, said only the Nigerian military and the citizens of the country have "the magic wand to end Boko Haram" once and for all.
Admitting that the Nigerian military has made substantial progress against insurgents and bandits in the last five years, Ogunseye said the homemade approach is one way to ensure criminality ends in Nigeria.
He also called for massive support troops of the military in its various operations across the northeast region and other parts of the country.
Meanwhile, following the spate of killings in southern Kaduna, the president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Samson Ayokunle, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to intensify efforts to address insecurity issues in the country.
The CAN president speaking on the ongoing crisis in Kaduna, said the killings have clearly shown Nigeria is at war against enemies of the state.
According to The Cable, Ayokunle who disclosed this in a statement by his special assistant on media and communications, Adebayo Oladeji, condemned the president’s comment explaining that the killings in Kaduna were fuelled by politics and revenge.
