The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed had disclosed that the Federal Government knows the hide out of bandits terrorising the country but are only been cautious.
He stated vividly that the government is not clueless in finding a solution to the high insecurity rate in the country.
While speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Tuesday, May 11, he said that the government is fully aware of the hide out of different kidnappers but they are only be cautious of how to apprehend them.
“It is no longer news that our dear Nation is facing security challenges. However, I have read comments saying Federal Government is overwhelmed and doesn’t have a clue as to how to tackle the challenges. Some have even gone as far as suggesting truncation of the democratic order, a clearly reasonable stance.
Well, I am here today to assure all Nigerians that while the government acknowledged the security challenges we face at this time, from terrorism to kidnapping, banditry and farmer _ herder conflict, it is definitely not overwhelmed and indeed it has the wherewithal, as you will see in the days ahead, to confront the challenges heading and restore law and order, peace and security.
One of the most difficult things to do, for a democratic elected government, is to use the instruments of coercion against its own people. For example, while the nation’s military have superior firepower over the rag tag band of Biko Haram and ISWA, the terrorists most often than not operate among the populace, either in our villages or towns, hence the military in tackling them is usually careful to avoid collateral damage.
The same apply to the kidnappers who abduct our school children. Usually, the location of the kidnappers is not unknown this security forces, but they still have to exercise caution in order not to hurt the sane children they are trying to rescue. Despite these inhibitions, the security forces have the wherewithal to decisively tackle the challenges”
