Insurgency: Maintain winning tempo, don’t give breathing space – MURIC urges security agencies
Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged Nigerian security agencies to keep up the current tempo in the fight against insurgency in the country.
MURIC observed that men of the Nigerian Army, the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS) have turned on the heat on insurgents, kidnappers, and other criminals in recent times, thereby putting them on the run.
In a statement by the director of MURIC, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Sunday, the Islamic group urged Nigerian security agencies not to give criminals breathing space.
The statement read in part: “A new trend has emerged in the Nigerian security architecture. We have observed the new energy and change of strategy in the campaigns conducted by men of the Nigerian Army, the Police and the Department of State Services (DSS).
“They have turned on the heat on insurgents, kidnappers and other criminals in recent times, thereby putting them on the run.
“We find it necessary to make our observation public in view of the tornado of criticisms directed at the Nigerian security agencies in the recent past.”
MURIC also gives kudos to Nigerian troops, saluting men of the Nigeria Police and the DSS who feed others with intelligence with information.
It added, “We urge them all to sustain the tempo. We must give criminals no breathing space.”
