Premium Times reported that the CAS said he was at Aso Rock to brief President Buhari on the task he gave him. He said that he had accomplished one aspect of the tasks and also to brief Buhari on their operations, especially operations Sahel Sanity in the northwest and the ongoing operations in northeast and other security issues, that pertains to the Nigerian army.
According to Burutai, the security situation in the northwest was under control as against what it was in the previous months.
He said the soldiers were working very hard and the troops were doing very well and that he commended them for the efforts they have put in so far.
Responding to questions whether the army had the capacity to deliver the task of ending insecurity, he said the security of the country was a task for everyone.
He added that the time banditry, terrorism and other security threats would end, depends on the people.
The paper quoted him to have said,
“If Nigerians want it to end today, I can assure you it will end today if everybody joins hands because these bandits are not outside Nigeria, they are not from foreign land.”
But this attracted attacks from Nigerians with some people calling on the Chief of Army Staff to resign. Others asked him to direct his statement to north, and not the whole of Nigerians.

Please share your opinion this? Is Burutai throwing the ball to the court of Nigerians or is he blank Nigerians for the escalating banditry and insurgency?
