New IGP, same old banditry and security threats

Nigeria News Update
Issue #14 • View online
Dear MyNigeria reader,
Buhari’s inability to tackle the spate of kidnappings, banditry and terrorism in the country has become tiring to many Nigerians.
His “unconstitutional” sacking of Mohammed Adamu as Inspector General of Police and appointment of DIG Usman Alkali Baba as Acting IGP from his base in London clearly shows his old trick remains the same.
Can his new man handle the combined burden of bandits, herdsmen and other elements threatening the sanity of the state? It is a question for posterity.
Meanwhile, the coronavirus daily count is gradually reducing. So far, 164,000 Nigerians have been affected with the virus, while, 2,060 have died.
Our best wishes for a positive week ahead. Please send any comments, suggestions, criticisms, ideas, news, and features to Follow us on all social media platforms at @themynigeria for updates throughout the day. You can also download the MyNigeria App from Google Playstore.
