Jonathan Calls For New Approach To End Killings

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has asked both Federal and State Governments to seek a new approach, to tackle the growing insecurity in the country.

Jonathan urges them to adopt new technology, to cope with the security challenges.

He warns against politicizing the issue of security, and asks President Buhari to consider some of the recommendations in the 2014 National Conference Report.

The Former President spoke on the issue in Akure during a condolence visit to the Afenifere Leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti, on the killing of his daughter, Funke Olakunrin, by gunmen.

Jonathan, who contends that the attack was carried out by terrorists recalls that there was insecurity also when he was in power, but expresses concern that it is worsening.

He traces insecurity in the country to a period after the Nigerian Civil War, when armed robbery was prevalent in Lagos.

Also, Jonathan recalls that the first kidnap for ransom in the country was recorded in Bayelsa state in 2006 when he was the State Governor, which according to him has graduated into terrorism.
