The Seriki n Fulani in Kwara South Senatorial District, Adamu Ojonla Mahmud, has called for a collective collaboration in tackling insecurity, saying tribal tagging of perpetrators of the menace could be a diversionary tactic by those sponsoring the evil act.

Mahmud, who is the Ahron of Kwara South made the call while speaking with journalists in Ilorin over the recent kidnapping in the state and the killing of monarch..

He said tagging crimes or criminal activities to a tribe would not help the country especially now that the nation needed unity among its citizens.

Mahmud, however applauded the security agencies for their investigation and arrest of the culprits that let the people know the clear picture of the those behind the crime.
