Buhari was portrayed as the man that would make Nigeria the safest country on earth, but on the contrary, the security situation under him has deteriorated massively, with possibly Benue state being possibly the worst victim of Buhari's incompetent handling of national security
Let's consider what Benue state has suffered under Buhari's watch.

In 2015, Benue state suffered at least 8 attacks.

See infographic from PremiumTimes.
In 2016, Benue state suffered possibly the worst attack in Nigeria's history - The Agatu attack in which at least 500 people were killed in that single incident.

Again, see infographic - source PremiumTimes.

By the way, Buhari claimed he sent the IGP to Benue, but no show
The Benue attack was ghastly.

The mercenaries employed for the attack were allegedly ferried from neigbouring countries.

How could Nigeria become so dangerous and porous under the watch of Buhari, a supposedly retired Army General that boasted about clearing out Maitasine sect?
PremiumTimes conducted an investigative report of the Agatu Massacre. See article below.

Chilling stuff.

But has Buhari arrested the masterminds and perpetrators?

Other states in Nigeria was not spared sorrow, tears & blood as insecurity increased under Buhari's watch.

Taraba, Adamawa, Enugu, Ondo (in one incident, Olu Falae was kidnapped) were all under one form of large scale attacks.

Has Buhari's government arrested those responsible?
Now, let us consider attacks by Boko Haram/ISWAP against Nigeria(ns) under Buhari's watch.

With a massive media clampdown, the Buhari admin has tried to keep a lid on the death of soldiers and civilians at the hands of BHT/ISWAP, but foreign media reports still get out.
In February 2018, Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT) drove unchallenged into Dapchi in Yobe state and kidnapped a 110 school girls.

BHT then rode away without anyone from Buhari's government challenging them.

This was under the watch of a man some had called "The new sheriff in town"
The Buhari admin PAID BOKO HARAM to release 109 of the Dapchi girls (see article below).

Leah Sharibu was not released, because she refused to renounce her faith and still remains under BHT captivity.…
Even though the Buhari admin had declared Boko Haram to be "technically defeated, the truth is the group has been on a rampage under Buhari's watch.

Consider the following instances, dating from 2015.

July 2015, 145 dead in Kukawa, Borno…
February 2016, Boko Haram kill close to 90 in two separate attacks…
Boko Haram, not seemed satisfied with attacking civilians, turned their sights on military bases.

Several of the Army's FOB's where hit and hundreds of soldiers unfortunately died.

This is under the watch of Buhari that promised to lead from the front but has done no such thing
In November 2018, Boko Haram attacked the Army's FOB in Metele, Borno state.

Over 100 of our soldiers died but the Buhari admin covered it up.

The recovered bodies of our soldiers were quietly buried in Maiduguri by the Army.
In December 2018, Boko Haram sacked Baga, displacing the MNJTF (comprising troops from Chad, Cameroon, Niger & Nigeria).

This was a huge, huge thing but the Buhari admin played it down. Till date we don't have exact figures of our troops Killed In Action from this attack
By the way, the five Airforce M35 chopper crew that died were killed when their chopper crashed while on air support for recovering Baga from Boko Haram.

Where was Buhari as C-in-C?

In Akwa Ibom campaigning.

This was the man that promised to lead the troops from the front...
Suffice to say, Buhari HAS FAILED as COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF.

There a lot more incidents of how Boko Haram has continued to wreck havoc under Buhari's watch.

SBM Intelligence, in their 2017 site report for the North East, list the following
I could go on and on, but it is as clear as colourless glass that Buhari is a HUGE failure as Commander-in-Chief.

It is particularly disappointing that a Retired ARMY GENERAL can perform so poorly as C-in-C.

He has disappointed his troops.

He has disappointed Nigerians.
