By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the federal government was working to ensure the safety of every Nigerian, adding that every country in the faced security challenges of their own.
Mohammed said this via a press release on the release of the kankara schoolboys on Friday.
“This Administration attaches to the security and safety of allNigerians. There is no government in the world that will not face thechallenges of security at one time or another. No government in theworld is immune to terrorist attacks. What stands any government outis the way and manner it responds to such challenges.
“For example, school shooting has been a recurring challenge in theUnited States. Between 2010 and 2020, almost 200 school children werekilled and many more injured in various school shooting incidents.Needless to say that the world’s most powerful country suffered atragic terrorist attack in September 2001 that claimed almost 3,000lives.
“In France, between 2010 and 2020, 286 people were killed invarious terrorist incidents. And in New Zealand, in March 2019, 49 people were killed in shootings at two mosques in ChristChurch, New Zealand. Ihave given these instances to support the fact that no nation, no matter how powerful, is immune to security challenges .
