He also advised state and local governments to be more proactive by improving security around schools and their surroundings.
He described the abduction of 317 girls in Government Girls Secondary School, Jangebe as inhumane and totally unacceptable.
He warned bandits that they cannot defeat government, stating: “No criminal group can be too strong to be defeated by the government. The only thing standing between our security forces and the bandits are the rules of engagement.
“Let them not entertain any illusions that they are more powerful than the government. They shouldn’t mistake our restraint for the humanitarian goals of protecting innocent lives as a weakness or a sign of fear or irresolution.”
