Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday admitted that the nation needs to review its conventional means of dealing with security challenges.

He said the government needed to do more on local intelligence and community policing.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice-President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, in a statement said Osinbajo spoke while answering questions from reporters on his arrival at Lafia, Nasarawa State, for a one-day official visit.

Reacting specifically to the recent killing of 43 rice farmers in Borno State, Osinbajo said such an attack could not be prepared for through conventional means.

 He said he is very confident and the Federal Government will continue to do what it needs to do especially in terms of trying to ensure security in the North East and all over Nigeria.
