Yahaya Bello, the Governor of Kogi State, has called out politicians for being behind the high spate of insecurity in Nigeria.
He made this known on Wednesday while appearing on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily Programme.
Bello placed the blame for the insecurity situation in the country squarely on politicians and explained that the use of political thugs during elections was largely responsible for the insecurity in Nigeria.
The governor was reacting to the issue of banditry ravaging the Northern part of the country.
He, however, warned that Nigeria can only be safe and secure when politicians stop using thugs and criminals during elections.
“When politicians stop the use of thugs, touts, or some group of criminals, that is when we will begin to have safety and security,” Bello said.
