I Have No Confidence In Nigerian Security Forces – Niger Gov.


THE Governor of Niger State, Abubakar Bello, on Tuesday, said he had lost confidence in Nigeria’s security agencies and proposed that traditional rulers should be given  security votes to help in curtailing the increasing rate of crime in the country.Bello said, “Despite the huge amounts voted and given to security agencies monthly, they have failed in making the state and nation safer as crime seems to have become the order of the day.”He, therefore, suggested that if N100m was given to traditional rulers monthly, the nation would fare better in the aspect of security.

He expressed dismay over the new wave of crime currently sweeping across the state, adding that there was a total breakdown of law and order in the state as criminals were beginning to take over the state.He added that the state needed a lot of prayers as all efforts to combat the new wave of crime seemed not to be working, stressing that he had lost confidence in security agencies.
