After weeks of silence, Buhari reacts to Southern Kaduna killings, orders 'strong actions'

After weeks of silence, President Muhammadu Buhari has given instructions for decisive measures aimed at bringing an end to the recurring acts of violence and destruction in the Southern part of Kaduna State. The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had earlier condemned the President's silence "over the ongoing genocide in Kaduna'.

The General Secretary of CAN, Dr. Musa Asaka, said Buhari's silence in the last few weeks "speaks volume over perceived official endorsement of the dastardly and ungodly acts."
A statement issued on Thursday, by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu said:
"On the directive of President Buhari, the Inspector-General of Police was in the region on Saturday and Sunday to assess the situation at first hand. In addition to the conventional policemen deployed in the area, a squadron of mobile policemen has now been stationed there. The Nigerian army is also in the process of setting up two battalions in Southern Kaduna while the military continues to carry out air surveillance across flash points of the area. 
President Buhari has equally directed the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to carry out a joint assessment of the situation with the sister agency in Kaduna, SEMA, to determine the level of response required for urgent aid to the victims of the violence. 
These measures should soon ensure the return of normalcy to the region, while the Kaduna State government continues its peace building efforts. The President commended efforts of the State government and the security agencies in the steps taken so far to curtail the violence. 
President Buhari has, once again, sent condolences to the people of Southern Kaduna, who have lost loved ones in the recent violence.
The president also took to twitter. He wrote:

    Do we need d president to direct the IGP or any security agency to handle any crisis?

    And by his being there, will it bring d much needed peace or dead back to life?

    Dis our country... our leaders r after money, power, influence n connection; while common men n women just die.

    Even a farmer won't allow his poultry go to waste like dis?

    In America, when massacre of even school pupils, d President makes national broadcast and in some cases travel than to d scene to register his condolences but here in nigeria, our PMB Doesn't say anything until Christians are killed in hundreds. To d best of my knowledge, we don't practice true federalism to warrant overbearing reliance on d state governor's briefing. When Christians r killed in d north, PMB relies on gov, when FAYOSE defends his people in d south against these northern beasts, Aso Rock sends their security apparatus after him. As for u reading this, I don't know but for me, I am aware-2019,pls come fast.

    It shows how 'concerned' you are. The long silence as usual... now you've spoken, no condemnation in your words. Why won't this repeat itself over and over again?! It's very obvious you support this act. Satanists ruling Nigeria.
