FMinister of Media, Lai Mohammed has argued that the federal government would not destroy forests where bandits are used as shelters for kidnappings in the country.

Mohammed, talking to Channels TV about how to eradicate robbers, said the environment would be damaged if the government destroyed the forests.

He noted that a better option for eliminating forest bandits was better consultation between the sub-national government, the federal government and security agencies.

The minister said: “We cannot destroy the forest because of climate change. The better approach is not to destroy the forest because it would affect the eco-system but what we need is better consultation with sub national government and security agencies on how to secure the forest to make them safe for everybody.

“Those forest are used as hideouts but I think with technology today and when all our platforms are delivered, it will no longer be business as usual as the forest will not save those criminals and bandits but again we need collaborative effort of everyone.”
