Injustice, deprivation of citizens’ rights, fueling insecurity – Dr Adeleke

There is a need to declare a state of emergency in the security sector of the country. 

A lecturer from the University of Lagos, Dr. Abdul-Lateef Adeleke said this in Ibadan while delivering a lecture at the 12th Triennial congress of Ansar Ud Deen Society of Nigeria, Oyo State Council.  

Dr Adeleke said with the present state of affairs in the nation’s security sector, both federal and state governments must come up with policies that would reform the security apparatus of the country.

He noted that injustice and deprivation of legitimate rights of the citizens are a few of the factors contributing to insecurity in the country.

Earlier, the state chairman of Ansar UD Deen Society of Nigeria, Oyo State Council, Alhaji Hazeez Oladejo had said that the triennial congress would review activities of the society in the last three years. 

Highlights of the programme were the conferment of Gold Merit Awards on some distinguished Nigerians who had contributed immensely to the propagation of Islam and the Ansar Ud Deen Society of Nigeria.

Some of the awardees were the General Manager of Pensioners FM Ibadan, Dr Babatunde Tiamiyu, wife of Oyo State Deputy Governor, Alhaja Amudalat Olaniyan, some businessmen and women as well as the late former Governor of Oyo State, Chief Abiola Ajimobi who was conferred with a Posthumous Gold Merit Award.
