Minister of Defense, Mansur Dan-Ali has called for stronger collaborations between the security forces and the Nigerian media in the war against insurgency.
The minister, who made the call at a national conference on Civil-Military relations and the Media in Kaduna state, believes that, the ongoing fight against insurgency armed banditry, kidnapping and cattle rustling, cannot succeed if the media continues to downplay the effort of the military in combating the insurgency.
He also expressed concerns that beyond the insurgency in the North East, security threats from kidnappers, cattle rustlers, and armed bandits are potential threats to the collective peace of the country; hence, he urged that every hand must be on deck to secure the country.
