He revealed that a new tactics in the operation of the insurgents have been discovered and urged landlords to develop special relationship with their tenants to verify and know them well.
“I want also appealed to landlords and tenants in the country to be sure of the tenant to accommodate in your houses. I want all Nigerians to develop a special relationship with their neighbour in order to have a wide knowledge of themselves. Every landlord must endeavour to check where their tenants are coming from because people with dubious character and intention have moved to new area and most of these people moving to these new areas are actually being looked for. So, know your tenant and where are they coming from as you welcoming any into your premises” he said.
