The Buhari Youth Organisation (BYO) on Sunday commended the Federal Government and the Nigerian Armed Forces for their exploits and success at taming the activities of terrorists in the North East.
The group gave the commendation in a statement signed by its General Secretary, Mr Adekunle Aderibigbe, to commemorate the 15th Anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001 terrorists’ attacks on the United States.
It would be recalled that the deadliest attacks by the Islamic extremists left so many people of different nationalities dead in that attack.
The statement reads, “Buhari Youth Organisation joined various institutions in remembrance of the affected ones who lost their loved ones to the terrorist attack of the black letter day in the United States of America.
“We want to commend the Nigerian government for curbing the excesses of terrorists in the North-Eastern part of the country. The efforts of our military and supports from concerned foreign institutions in the region and Internal Displaced Persons has earned the nation good reputation,” it said.
The statement, however, said that more was still required to be done in the fight against terrorism in the country as well as rehabilitating people in the affected areas and their environment.
It urged the relevant authorities to put necessary measures in place to prevent terrorists’ attacks rather than proffering solutions after attacks.
“In order to guide against similar occurrence in the future, BYO is calling out to the government and related institutions to step up on Database Management and intelligence.
“This could be used to monitor trends, behaviours and activities in order to forecast likelihood of terrorism or related crimes in the nearest future,” it added.
Meanwhile, the group said that its belief in security of lives and property had made a member of its Board of Trustees Amb. Abayomi Mumuni, a security expert, to be launching two works on terrorism.
According to it, the books titled, “Global Terrorism and its effects on humanity’ as well as “The Demands by Terror” are being launched on this memorable day in the United States and United Kingdom.
NAN recalls that the Sept. 11 attacks on U.S. were a series of four coordinated terrorist attacks by the Islamic terrorist group al-Qaeda on the United States in 2001.
