While celebrating the sacrifices and successes of the Nigerian military in defending the country courageously, the president pledged that his government would continue to provide the needed support required to wipe out terrorists and insurgents ‘‘off the face of the earth.’’

In a statement released by Garba Shehu, a presidential spokesperson, President Buhari confirmed the response of the Armed Forces of Nigeria to the Boko Haram insurgency, banditry, militancy, kidnapping as well as the activities of separatists and armed militias among others have been commendable.

The government will continue providing needed support

The President noted that most of the security challenges facing the world today were both asymmetric and trans-border in nature, involving mainly non-state actors in different regions and sub-regions of the world.

His words:

‘‘We have witnessed recent terrorist attacks in Nigeria bearing the hallmark of national and trans-border insurgents trying to cause havoc in Nigeria as well as in neighbouring countries.
‘‘It will be part of your duty to confront these terrorists and insurgents and wipe them off the face of the earth and bring peace to our countries."

He further told the graduating students that their participation in the course was a testimony of national security aspirations to promote international peace, friendship and cooperation.

Trouble for APC as PDP makes heavy allegation against ruling party over Kuje prison attack

The attack on the Kuje Custodial Centre and President Muhammadu Buhari's convoy had been condemned by the opposition.

The PDP said that the ruling APC should be held responsible for the incessant attack by terrorists across the country recently.

According to the party, the National Assembly should also immediately summon the security chiefs for a thorough investigation.

Kuje prison attack: Spread of ISWAP, Ansaru, other terrorist groups not surprising, security expert says

A security expert in Nigeria had said that the growing attacks on key places and soft targets by terrorists are not surprising.

Senator Iroegbu said that the implication of the attack at the Kuje prison facility is a red flag and a pointer that the Federal Capital Territory may be a city under siege.

According to the expert, there is a need for punitive measures to be meted out to security personnel and agencies that jeopardise the effort to end terrorists' activities in Nigeria.
