“However, there have been some red herrings in recent times including those calling for the resignation of Mr. President or the sack of the service chiefs.

“I just want to say that government, which has provided and continues to provide the military and security agencies with the wherewithal, believes in their ability to tackle insecurity.

“These challenges will be successfully tackled. I will, however, advise all commentators, especially political and religious leaders, to be very careful at this time not to aggravate the situation with incendiary comments; comments that cash in on our religious, ethnic and political fault lines to further divide us,” he said.
