Better living conditions’ll check terrorism – Shetima

ABUJA—Borno State governor, Kashim Shetima, yesterday in Abuja  implored the federal and states governments to improve the living conditions of the poor to forestall insecurity and banditry in the country.

Speaking at the opening of an International Security Awareness Summit on Terrorism and Other Related Crimes, tagged “National Security: Our Shared Obligation”, the governor disclosed that the poor living condition of the less privileged in the society was part of the reasons they were more susceptible to carrying arms and threatening the peace and security of the nation.
