Northern Elders Advices Buhari.

Pondering the insecurity situation in the country, the Northern Elders Forum, NEF, has again asked President Muhammadu Buhari to act swiftly to put things under control, saying the country was being set on fire under his watch.

Spokesman of the group, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, in a Twitter post on Saturday night, said Nigerians living in any part of the country must be protected.

He also said there would be no attacks on Southerners living in the north as a response to the alleged attack on Northerners in the South.

Buhari Sends Strict Warning To Nigerians.

President Muhammadu Buhari has promised that his administration will not allow any ethnic or religious group to stoke up hatred and violence against other groups.

According to the President on his Twitter page, the Nigerian government is committed to ensuring the security of all Nigerians, irrespective of religious affiliation or ethnicity.

The tweet came after ethnic violence in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, following the alleged killing of a Yoruba man by a Hausa resident.

The clash led to violence, which resulted in the destruction of property and the deaths of an unspecified number of people.
