President Muhammadu Buhari is planning to reorganise the security apparatus in lieu of the spate of killings in parts of the country.

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, quoted Buhari as disclosing this today during a meeting with him (Dogara) and Senate President Bukola Saraki.

Dogara was speaking at thestatehousee to reporters after he and Senate President Bukola Saraki met with the president at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Saraki and Dogara met behind closed- doors with Buhari over the recent killings of scores of people in Plateau State by herdsmen.

“The President has taken enough steps, these are security issues, they are not matters that you can discuss; but he has told us what he is doing, the re-organisation that he plans to put in place to ensure that this doesn’t happen,” he said.

Dogara said Buhari briefed them on what he saw firsthand when he visited the troubled state on Tuesday and the measures he was putting in place to forestall recurrence.

He added, “These are very sober moments for all of us. In a situation where people, in hundreds, continue to be killed, we can no longer tolerate this kind of situation as a government.

“Whatever it is, we must not lose the fight against violence because we can’t lose that fight and still keep our civilisation.

“If you go to the North East, you can see the level of devastation caused by Boko Haram. Everything resembling progress: from schools to hospitals to government institutions, everything has been pulled down. And we don’t want a replication of this all over the country.”
