General Christopher Musa, the Chief of Defense Staff, discussed the country’s efforts to manage the growing wave of insecurity in an interview with Daily Trust. He also discussed other significant topics, such as the welfare of soldiers.
Speaking on the intermittent crises in the Plateau State’s Mangu Local Government Area and the bandit activity in the northern area, General Musa claimed that certain citizens were undermining the nation’s attempts to reduce insecurity.
He said, “In fairness, people are really reaching out to us. And it has helped us a lot. But we still have some people trading with them.”
Further talking, he said, “We have doctors who go to the bush to treat them. In the North, we have women who carry their fellow women to go and give them at night to get money. It is that bad.”
