Insecurity: Withdraw From Less Volatile Areas, Buhari Orders Military

President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday, directed security chiefs to withdraw their men from parts of the country where calm has returned.

The directive is coming against the backdrop of increasing attacks on Nigeria communities by Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) in the Northeast.
Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas, Chief of Naval Staff, while briefing State House Correspondents after a security meeting with Buhari, described the activities of ISWAP in the Northeast as “worrisome”.

However, Ibas assured that the withdrawal will be in phases, and based on “results of assessment of current operations going on in various parts of the country.”
