As Nigerians continue to condemn the attacks on the Emir of Kano, Ado Bayero that left four people dead, former military president, General Ibrahim Babangida Sunday called for change of tactics in handling the security challenges in the country. He also reiterated the call for dialogue as a measure to check the activities of the religious sect, the Boko Haram.

In a statement titled, ‘Emir of Kano’s Attack: An Alert Call’ which he personally signed, IBB, as he is popularly called, said,  “I wish to advise the Federal Government to exploit the option of dialogue with members of the insurgent groups in order to arrest this prevailing drift in our national security.

The use of force has proven to be inadequate and ineffective to checkmate this ugly trend. We must therefore put hands together to find a more rewarding and meaningful end to this security concern”.
