The Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi has asked Nigerians to stop tackling and blaming security agencies over the increased insecurity witnessed across the country.
Bichi who said this at the Security and Emergency Awards (SEMA 2020), averred that the support of citizens is pertinent especially in the area of intelligence gathering.
“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 have a change of mind to rededicate ourselves to the ideals of building a country that is devoid of any insecurity.”
