Following the renewed incidents of pipeline vandalism in the Niger Delta, President Buhari has threatened to deal decisively with those behind the act. According to a statement by the senior Special Assistant to Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, Buhari made the threat while speaking with Nigerians residing in Dubai earlier yesterday.
While stating that the Nigerian Armed Forces had already dealt “deadly blows” on Boko Haram, Buhari said the activities of oil thieves and vandals would soon be brought to an end
“The oil thieves and abductors are a less problematic target. We will re-organise and deal with them,” he was quoted as saying.
In the same vein, he warned telecommunication companies operating in Nigeria not to place their desire for huge profits above the security needs of the country. He said all telecommunication companies operating in Nigeria must adhere to the rules and guidelines of the Nigerian Communications Commission in this regard. He spoke on his administration’s war against corruption.
