The Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to review the security architecture in line with contemporary challenges facing the country.
National President of the body, Rev. Dr. Felix Omobude made the appeal yesterday in a statement which was made available to newsmen in Benin City, the Edo state capital.
Omobude, condemned the recent killings of scores of unarmed civilians in Plateau and Zamfara states and called on the ruling class to fulfill their electoral promises ahead of the 2019 general elections.
He challenged the government to halt the massacre and accord security a priority as well as demonstrate more committed to safety of lives and property of Nigerians.
“There is need for our government and security forces to be proactive instead of reactionary. They should learn to be on top of the situation by acting before the criminals strike.
“Besides, there is need for an urgent review of the nation’s security apparatus so as to make it more effective.
“The perpetrators of these dastardly acts must be fished and punished appropriately,” the statement said.
