The Federal Government is not losing its grip on the nation’s security despite the recent numerous challenges the nation, including the herdsmen-farmers crisis.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, made the assertion in an interview with Channels Television in Abuja.

“Since the beginning of this year it’s been tough, it’s been challenging,” he said when he appeared on Sunrise Daily on Thursday.

“We have had all sorts of criminality, all sorts of wanton killing but then, what I would not agree with is the government losing monopoly of anything.”

The Presidential aide argued that nobody ever has the monopoly of violence, saying it could flare at any given time as long as people have access to the instruments of violence such as arms and ammunition.

He noted that the government has a responsibility to protect the lives and property of the citizens and that is exactly what they are doing.
