US Secretary of State Kerry warns Nigeria military and police

The visiting US Secretary of State to Nigeria John Kerry has urged the Nigerian government to build trust with the people as a means of tackling extremism and corruption.
He also warned the security forces that they need to police the country in a sensitive way:
Building public trust also requires co-operation from law enforcement and the military.
It is understandable that in the wake of terrorist activities some people are tempted to crack down on everyone and anyone who could theoretically pose some sort of a threat.
I caution against that today extremism cannot be defeated through repression and just creating fear.”
