“We want to call on all Nigerians to be security conscious and to report any suspicious persons or group of people that are roaming about in their communities,” Buratai said.

“One may not be too far from the fact that some of these herdsmen that are attacking communities across the country may have some affiliation with the Boko Haram terrorists.

“This we are further investigating and also pursuing them so that we can address the situation, so let’s be security conscious. Report movement of suspicious persons carrying arms; if you suspect any individual within your community, report them immediately.
