Lai said; “Some people have been trying to exploit our fault lines on matters of insecurity such as the farmers-herdsmen clashes.

“It has militated against our attempt to get foreign assistance to tackle insecurity. The country has in different instances been denied equipment from outside to fight insecurity based on this perception,” he added.
