The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday has dispatched a high-level delegation, made up of the heads of the nation’s intelligence and security services, to Sokoto and Katsina states in response to the recent spike in bandit activities.

This is coming barely 24 after the President inaugurated Navy Ships, Patrol Boats, and a helicopter at the Naval Dockyard, Victoria Island in Lagos to boost security at the maritime borders.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu disclosed this in a statement titled ‘President Buhari Sends Security, Intelligence Heads To Sokoto, Katsina.’

According to Shehu, “The President is expecting an immediate situation report and recommendations on actions to follow to effectively deal with the worrying situation.”

The delegation led by the National Security Adviser, Major General Babagana Munguno (Rtd) is made up of the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba; the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Magaji Bichi; the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Ambassador Ahmed Rufa’i Abubakar and the Chief of Defence Intelligence, Major General Samuel Adebayo.

The commissioner was killed on Wednesday in his house located at Fatima Shema Quarters, Katsina.

This followed an attack by bandits on travellers from Sokoto to Kaduna State which saw the death of 23 persons.
