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 governmentâ€™s efforts.
â€œWe 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,â€
