The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, (SAN), has warned Nigerians to desist from ethnicising insecurity in the country.
Making reference to recent shootings in the US, Keyamo explained that insecurity was a global phenomenon that has affected every country.
Keyamo on his Twitter page argued that insecurity is a global threat and therefore critics should not be politicised.
His tweet read: “Yet, another mass shooting in the USA today. The statistics in the US is staggering.
“However, it is no excuse for our state of insecurity and it is immoral for us to compare and say ours is even lesser.
“But we should stop ethnicism and politicising what is clearly a global phenomenon.”
In recent months, Nigeria, especially the Northern region has been faced with kidnappings.
Following the spate of insecurity, some Nigerians lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari, describing him as an incompetent leader who has failed to secure the lives and properties of Nigerians.
