Do More to end Insecurity in Nigeria – Afenifere
The pan-Yoruba sociopolitical group, Afenifere, has expressed displeasure over continuous kidnapping of travelers and inhabitants of the Southwest region and other parts of the country without any arrest of perpetrators.
At the end of its monthly meeting at the residence of its national leader, Pa Reuben Fasoranti in Akure, the Ondo state capital, Afenifere said it was unfortunate that the issue of insecurity in parts of the Southwest, Northwest and Northeast regions was not being tackled with required vigour.
Reading the communiqué of the meeting to newsmen, Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr. Yinka Odumakin said the group was not happy with a comment credited to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in America that banditry and kidnapping in Nigeria were being exaggerated by the political class.
The group cautioned that government’s officials and security agencies should stop politicising security of citizenry and advised President Muhammadu Buhari to be more ruthless in handling insecurity in the country by allowing setting up of state police nationwide.
