Food scarcity caused by terrorists will take time to fix – Lai Mohammed

Mohammed made the comment on Thursday, January 26, while receiving members of the Presidential Committee on the North-East Initiative in Abuja.
“The Boko Haram insurgency affects seven countries and more than 20 million people are also affected. The food security or scarcity caused by the Boko Haram will take time to fix, this is because, for six years, people could not go to their farm,” Mohammed said.
“Until we win the war in the North-East, we may not have peace. All companies are feeling the heat. Pharmaceutical companies are feeling the heat as well. All manufacturing companies are feeling it.
“Before the crisis, Potiskum (in Yobe State) used to be the largest cattle market in West Africa. But now, it is deserted,” he added.
Mohammed also said that the army has totally defeated Boko Haram.
