Acccording to him,  the ecosystem will be affected if the government destroys the forests.

He added that the most effective way on how to eliminate  bandits from the forest was to have better consultation between sub national government, the federal government and security agencies.

The minister said: “We cannot destroy the forest because of climate change. The better approach is not to destroy the forest because it would affect the eco-system but what we need is better consultation with sub national government and security agencies on how to secure the forest to make them safe for everybody.

“Those forest are used as hideouts but I think with technology today and when all our platforms are delivered, it will no longer be business as usual as the forest will not save those criminals and bandits but again we need collaborative effort of everyone.
