President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged to install CCTV’s strategically along highways, monitor forests, and bushes with the use of aerodromes.

This promise comes following the increase of the activities of the terrorist group called the Fulani herdsmen militia in the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari disclosed this on Wednesday, July 31, 2019 when the Ooni of Ife, Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi Ojaja II, and other traditional rulers in the South West visited him at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

Briefing journalists after the meeting, the Ooni of Ife said the President gave an assurance that the entire security architecture of the country would be restructured.

He suggested that community policing will reduce the security issues confronting the nation.

According to him, traditional rulers and not politicians will assist the police recruit officers from within the community who understand the terrain in order to avert tension in the southwest.

The Ooni said he is confident that these interventions will effectively address the challenge of insecurity, especially in the southwest.

Responding to those who are asking that the Fulani’s leave the South West, he said it is only the bad ones identified that should leave.
