Ndudi Elumelu, the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, has commended President Muhammadu Buhari on his order to security agents to shoot any unauthorised person bearing AK-47 rifles in the country.
He however said it would have been better if Buhari had given the order in a broadcast rather than a statement by his media aide.
Elumelu was speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Thursday.
“The statement credited to the media aide to Mr President is a welcome development but I would have prefered that Mr President himself made that broadcast.
“I would like him to outrightly condemn the activities of the herdsmen,” he said.
“They are everywhere messing up all the communities, attacking people.”
