The emir of Daura Dr Umar Farouk Umar, has used the opportunity of a visit from the chief of army staff Lt General Buratai to alert all Nigerians on the dangers of the current dynamic and multifaceted security threats facing the nation. According to the emir “What Nigeria is experiencing now is greater than the civil war”.
The emir cautioned that at this period, there is no need for undue interference on security matters to avoid distracting the security agencies.
He enjoined civilians to be careful with their attempts to create a division between the government and the security agencies.
He reminded the nation to remember that President Buhari took over at a critical period when Nigeria was on the verge of collapse.
He, therefore, urged the COAS to remain resolute, focused, and continue with his good work and not to listen to distractive comments from any quarters.
Dr Farouk further used the occasion to on behalf of his council and the entire people of Daura thank the Nigerian Army for setting up an forward operating base in Daura town, to enhance response to security threats in the area and surrounding communities which have so far commendably assisted in providing the required peace and security in the areas.
Dr Farouk further emphasized the need for the people to consistently support the military and other agencies by providing useful information on the movement of suspicious persons and activities in the communities for them to succeed in providing the necessary security for the people and the nation.
