The president was reported to have made this vow during a crucial meeting of the National Security Council.
The statement read in part:
"At today's meeting the president made it abundantly clear that while the insurgents, bandits and criminals are still at it, he has no doubt that the Nigerian Security agencies and all of us as a nation will certainly overcome all the current security problems and defeat the forces of evil marauding about in different parts of the country.
"While the criminals continue to test the will of the Nigerian government, the President and the Council which adjourned today's critical meeting until Tuesday morning to receive further briefings from the Security Chiefs, are set and determined to decisively end the assault on the nation and will do all that it takes.
"Mr. president is very prepared to take profound measures in the wider interest of the people and the Nigerian nation. There shall be no relenting until peace and security is significantly restored in our communities."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that as insecurity continues to affect the country Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti state and his Kebbi counterpart, Abubakar Bagudu, met with the acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, at the Force Headquarters.
Fayemi who also serves as the chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum made this known via a tweet on his official Twitter page on Thursday, April 29.
Even though the full details of the meeting are still sketchy, it is believed to be centred on the need to find ways of partnering with the police in tackling the security challenges confronting the country.
The Ekiti state governor on his part explained that they had talks on how the state governments can better collaborate with the Nigerian police to address the security challenges in the country.
