The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, on Monday, said the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration was not overwhelmed by insecurity.

The minister said this on the TVC programme, ‘This Morning’, while condoling with the families of the victims of the recent Abuja-Kaduna train attack by bandits.

According to him, the Buhari administration was fast-tracking the installation of some security gadgets on railway tracks to ensure adequate surveillance.

“The federal government is working toward ensuring that such an incident does not reoccur.

“One of the things that the government wants to do is to fast-track the installation of a surveillance and monitoring system, not just on the Abuja-Kaduna rail track.

“But also on the Lagos-Ibadan and Warri-Itakpe rail tracks to ensure that at any given time we will be able to monitor from the control room,” he said.

Mohammed said the military and other security personnel were doing their best in stemming insecurity and have recorded successes in their fight against terrorism.

“We must give kudos to our military; you know that we are not fighting a conventional war but terrorism, hence the need for everyone to support the security agencies so as to win over the menace.

“The federal government has also given the military the enabling environment to continue in the fight against terrorism and banditry,” he said.
