Nigeria: Muslim Group Tasks FG On Security

The National Executive Committee of the Ansar-ud-deen Society (ADS) has called on the Federal Government to find a permanent solution to the security challenges facing the country.

The group made the call in a statement signed by its President, Alhaji Lateef Okunnu, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ogbomoso on Friday.

The ADS implored President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately convene a meeting with the presidents of Cameroun, Chad and Niger Republic with a view to tackling the insurgency in some parts of the country.

It further described Monday's bomb blast at Nyanya motor park in Abuja as inhuman, adding that the abduction of secondary school girls in Borno on Tuesday was also barbaric.

The group decried the activities of the Boko Haram sect and advised Nigerians to be more vigilant and security conscious. (NAN)
