Okay.ng understands that the president disclosed this during a recorded interview broadcast aired on Monday, May 27th, on the Nigerian Television Authority, NTA.
Buhari, when asked on his thought on the recurring kidnapping for ransom happening in the country, he said:
“Those who are committing atrocities against communities, against the state and the country came from somewhere in Nigeria. Their neighbours know them, and we have politicians and rulers; the police are in the front line.
“We have the police in every major town and city in this country and I said they were not given the uniform and rifles to impress anybody, but to secure the people.
“I think the community leadership and the police have failed this country.”
