President Muhammadu Buhari is awaiting the report of a joint investigation committee before taking a decisive action on the killing of three policemen in Taraba.
Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity stated that the claims that President Buhari is indifferent is not true.
In response to press questions, he said, “I will confirm that a committee was set up during the National Security Council meeting to investigate the killing of three policemen and a civilian by soldiers in Taraba State.
“The insinuation of indifference on the part of President Muhammadu Buhari is therefore untenable.
“Contrary to those mischievous insinuations, President Buhari had ordered the Chief of Defence Staff to set up an investigation committee with representatives from all the security organizations in the country, including the police force.
“The President is not indifferent to the unfortunate incident, and would take decisive action as soon as the report of the panel is submitted to him. He is following due process and procedure.
“Putting the cart before the horse is not President Buhari’s way of doing things. Nigerians should show patience while the President awaits the report of the panel from the Chief of Defence Staff.”
