A Food Technologist from the University of Ibadan, Professor Abdulrahman Akinoso, made this known in an interview with pensioners FM.
According to Professor Akinoso, insecurity in the country has made lots of businesses fold up and this in turn has affected all aspects of the economy.
According to him “Insecurity in the country contributed to the shortage of food in the country, as distribution and production will be affected”

He said “The insecurity is beyond banditry and Insurgency, Armed Robbery is also has it effect on food production”
Professor Akinoso advised that, for Nigeria’s economy to go back to normalcy, the government should tackle insecurity to make the country safe for businesses and citizens.
