Forests in Nigeria now terrorists enclave – Akeredolu

The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu says Nigeria needs to seek foreign aid to tackle the deepening security crisis that plagues the nation.

He also raised alarm that forests across the nation have been taken over by terrorists.

The Governor said this while receiving members of the Council of All Saints Church, Jericho, Ibadan, who came on a condolence visit.

Akeredolu’s comments came on a day that President Muhammadu Buhari directed increased kinetic and non-kinetic efforts to trace and bring back over 51 passengers who were kidnapped on a Abuja-Kaduna train.

He said: “We have terrorists in Nigeria. We need the world to assist Nigeria.

“If Nigeria doesn’t want it, Ondo State wants it. They still attacked somewhere in Ogun State recently. There are terrorists lurking in our forests.”
