The federal government says there are non-patriotic elements that encourage insecurity in parts of the country.
Mohammed, however, said the government was resolutely addressing the situation and that security “will improve dramatically in the days to come.”
“The truth is that insecurity in some parts of the country is not organic, so to speak.
“Certain unpatriotic and discontented elements catalyze them definitively.
“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 provide information that could lead to the arrest and prosecution of these anarchists. Safety is everyone’s business, ” he said.
Mohammed said the security agencies, acting on the directives of President Muhammadu Buhari, were taking concrete steps that would significantly reduce the level of insecurity across the country.
He assured that citizens would feel the impact of the actions of the security agencies in the days to come.
The minister said the attack on the police headquarters and a correctional center, in which hundreds of detainees were released, in Imo state on Monday, “is very unfortunate, despicable, condemnable and unacceptable. ”.
“This attack is part of the growing pattern of inexplicable and lawless acts by some malcontents, who appear determined to unleash chaos across the country,” he said.
He called on all people of good will, especially traditional, religious and political leaders, to denounce anarchists before they cast the country into chaos.
“Nigerians must drive out those who act as ‘agent provocateurs’ for reasons best known to them.
“We must not allow them to win,” the minister said. (NOPE)
