Lai: We Can’t Conduct Full-Scale Bombings Against Bandits — Innocents May Be Killed
The area where bandits operate, according to Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, makes security operations tough.
The minister revealed this on Saturday during a radio program on Bond FM, according to NAN.
He claimed that the current administration had put resources into combating insecurity, but that these efforts would be more effective if citizens backed up the government’s efforts.
“We are also pleading with Nigerians to join in this fight because they have a lot of roles to play in tackling this insecurity. This is because these criminals called bandits are living among us; they interact with the people as well,” he said.
“Who are the ones supplying them with food? More so, they also have landlords. People should expose these criminals and then, the various efforts of the government will be effectively complemented and we will see the results.
“We have been trying our best in the fight against the bandits by equipping our security apparatus. The government has purchased aircraft so that they can fight alongside the soldiers. We have not rested on our oars.
“The welfare of the police is also given adequate attention and very recently, this administration recruited 25,000 constables and deployed them to their home states. This will go a long way in community policing.
“It will be easier for the newly-recruited constables to work effectively. There are lots of work in progress in the security infrastructure and personnel.”
