Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said with the appointment of the new service chiefs, the federal government has developed a “new approach”, to tackle insecurity in the country.

Osinbajo stated this in Ogun State, on Tuesday, after he participated in the All Progressives Congress (APC) revalidation and registration exercise in Ward One, Ikenne, area of the state.

He said, “We are in government at one of the most challenging times in history. The pandemic has made matters worse, and we have also had security challenges that have stretched our law enforcement capacities all over the country.

“What we must ensure is the prosecution of all those who have been arrested for kidnapping, banditry, and all other forms of criminalities. There must be evidence that justice is being done. This is achievable by stronger collaboration between the police, state Ministries of Justice, and the Federal Ministry of Justice.

The Vice-President said that with the ‘new approach’ which places more emphasis on technology, the insecurity in the country would be surmounted.

“With the new service chiefs, we have a fresh set of eyes, intellect, skills and a fresh look at strategies against the insurgency in the North East, as well as banditry and kidnapping elsewhere.

“In this new approach, much greater emphasis is being placed on technology for surveillance, intelligence gathering and attack.”
