The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has blamed unpatriotic elements for encouraging insecurity in parts of the country.
The Minister, who stated this on Tuesday in Abuja, however assured that the government was resolutely tackling the situation. He also assured that security “will improve drastically in the days ahead.”
He said: “The truth is that the insecurity in some parts of the country is not organic, so to say.
“Some unpatriotic and disgruntled elements are definitely catalysing them.
“But these people do not constitute the critical mass that can influence the course of our country’s history, and we must not cede the space to them.
“Nigerians must be forthcoming with information that can lead to the arrest and prosecution of these anarchists. Security is the business of all.”
Continuing, Mohammed also revealed that the security agencies, acting on the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari, were taking concrete actions that will significantly reduce the level of insecurity nationwide.
