President Muhammadu Buhari has blamed the insecurity in Nigeria on the political instability in Libya.

The president stated that he was working in tandem with security chiefs to curb the spate of banditry and attacks by terrorists.

Buhari disclosed this at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday while receiving the letters of credence from the new Canadian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Ambassador James Kingston Christoff and Ambassador of Mexico to Nigeria, Juan Alfred Miranda Oritz.

He sought the support and collaboration of international communities to battle insecurity.

Buhari said, “The political instability in Libya continues to fuel terrorism in the Sahel, West and Central African regions.

“Nigeria is not left out of the equation as we are fighting to rid our country of banditry, kidnapping, herder/farmer clashes and insurgency.

“We are, however, making meaningful progress with the support of friendly countries like yours to sustain this fight until we overcome these challenges,” he said.

The spate of terror attacks has heightened in recent times. Schools in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, were recently shut down over fear of attack by terrorists.
