A socio-cultural and political organisation in Yoruba land, Afenifere, has urged President Bola Tinubu to implore carrot and stick approach in addressing security challenges in Nigeria.

A statement by the Reuben Fasoranti faction, condemned the slaughtering of innocence and poor Nigerians who in the face of economic hardship struggled to meet ends need.

The body lamented the high rate of killings and kidnappings across Plateau, Benue, Kogi, Borno, Sokoto, Niger, Ondo, Katsina and Rivers states, recently.

According to the statement, “People of Akoko and Igbara Oke etc in Ondo State are afraid of armed herdsmen. Just as residents of some parts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, are now living in fear of kidnappers.

“Since the motives are not the same, strategies to tackle them too must be stratified in a manner that would be appropriate for the particular ones being dealt with.

“Of course, there can be extrapolation as some of those acts of terrorism can be inter-related. For instance, those who set houses ablaze could be doing so for both economic and territorial reasons and so on.

“Meetings should be convened with local leaders. Representatives of youths, religious bodies, artisans including representatives of identified marauders in the areas, where those unfortunate incidents are taking place should also be invited to the meetings. At such meetings, a carrot and stick approach has to be employed,” it said.
