Nigeria news : Why Nigeria will continue to be at mercy of terrorists – Lai Mohammed

Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism, Lai Mohammed, has said the country is at the mercy of terrorists because it is being denied access to acquire needed weapons to fight insurgency.

Mohammed stated this on Monday in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, during a courtesy call on Governor Samuel Ortom.

The Minister who lamented the killings of 43 farmers in Zabarmari, Jere Local Government Area of Borno State, claimed the federal government would not relent in its efforts to protect all Nigerians’ lives and properties.

He said, “We will never stop protecting the lives and livelihood of the people, but you must understand that we are also dealing with terrorists who are financed globally, and we also need more support from global partners.

“For instance, Nigeria has made attempts to acquire better and more effective platforms to deal with terrorists, and for one reason or the other, we have been denied these platforms, and these weapons and without adequate weapons and adequate platforms, we will remain at the mercy of terrorists.

“But you see, you must also be able to look at the strategy of the terrorists. You see, terrorists also use media and publicity as oxygen. So when they go on this kind of mindless killing of innocent people, it is just that a dying terrorist group will now suddenly again spring to life.

“It does not mean that the government is not doing enough, terrorism in Africa and any other place in the world has the same concept which is, you have a group of people who are extremists in their thoughts, who don’t believe that you and I should be alive.”
