Activist and critic, Adesunbo Onitiri, yesterday, has advised the Federal Government to ask for foreign help urgently and also stressed the need for state policing in order to combat the trending insecurity issues facing Nigeria.
Onitiri, in a statement, said: “Nigerians wanted to know what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing to tackle the problems of AK-47 riffles-armed herdsmen, invading farmlands and destroying farms and crops, chasing away and maiming and killing farmers, kidnapping and raping their women and children throughout the country.
“The activities of the herders and kidnappers are already creating hardships and famine for the entire nation, which must be checked immediately, and FG should engage the services of young and able-bodied Nigerians, train and arm them massively to confront the menacing kidnappers and terrorists.
“We, democrats and lovers of Nigeria, wish to call on President Buhari to make use of his Vice-President and his Chief of Staff. The insecurity seems to overwhelm the Presidency and the Federal Government.
“Every day, we are bombarded with news of numerous Nigerians being kidnapped and maimed. Even with the ransom paid to these heartless bandits, some victims are still being killed.
“Kidnapping has now turned to be the most lucrative business in Nigeria. This is sickening and nauseating to patriotic Nigerians.”
