The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed has asked the People’s Democratic Party to hold state governments, including those headed by members of the party, accountable for the prosecution of banditry and kidnapping cases.

According to him, banditry and kidnapping are not federal offenses.

The Minister made the remark at a press conference on Tuesday.

He was responding to statements credited to the PDP blaming the Federal Government for the rising insecurity in the country.
