Aderinokun in press statement issued in Abeokuta on Wednesday by his media aide, Taiye Taiwo said the high rate of unemployment in the country was largely responsible for the increase in banditry and criminality across the country. 


The business man cum politician who condemned the incessant attack on police formations in some parts of the country, enjoined President Muhammadu Buhari led administration to ensure safety of lives and properties instead of playing blame game. 


He equally implored the government to give utmost consideration to workers' welfare and ensure owed allowances are paid regularly. 


"Just before the Imo State Police Headquarters and a correctional facility in Owerri were attacked by gunmen which led to the release of over 1,800 inmates on Monday, the country has recorded several security challenges including kidnappings irrespective of age, robberies, communal clashes to mention a few.


"It is obvious the current security situation across the nation is deteriorating which calls for worry for every concerned Nigerian.
