By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi, has slammed Nigerians for constantly blaming security agencies over the state of insecurity in the country, asking them to join in the fight against insecurity.
Bichi said this at the Security and Emergency Awards, SEMA 2020, where he called for the support of the public in the fight against insecurity, which he said was no longer the preserve of government and security agencies.
“We call on Nigerians to support security agencies and the government.
“Security is no longer for government and security agencies; there is a need for collaborative efforts and partnerships.
“You continue to stay in your comfort zones and continue to blame security agencies for all, but the information that the security agencies need have you brought it?
“All those bad people are part of our communities; they live in our neighbourhoods. If you know one, tell the security agencies about him.
“If you have not done all these, it’s time for us to have a rethink; it’s time for us to rededicate ourselves to building a country that is devoid of any insecurity,” he stated.
