Mr Oluwatosin Dixon, the Public Relations Officer of the group in Africa recently revealed this to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, President Buhari should invoke necessary constitutional powers to ensure the security of lives and property, because that is clearly not the case right now.
He added that the throes of mindless banditry, killing and abduction of innocent citizens cannot be allowed to continue in our dear nation.
His words, “Insecurity is now evident in all parts of the country; the Northeast; where the military remains bogged down trying to suppress Boko Haram insurgency, same in the Northwest part of the country, hitherto considered stable, but today, instability has crept in with daily reported cases of killing and mass abduction of school pupils.”
“Lately, the North Central geopolitical zone has joined in the throes of mindless banditry, killing and abduction, among other unsavoury developments.”
“In the South-South, daily reported cases of abduction, attacks by Fulani bandits/herdsmen, and now the killing of government security forces is another of the gory tales that have become the lot of hapless Nigerians.”
“More alarming in recent times is the surge of attacks on security personnel in the Southeast; killing of uniformed officers, attack and burning of police formations, prison breaks, all of which presents a dismal picture of a seriously haemorrhaging, broken and unstable polity.”
“Attacks on police stations, particularly in Imo, Rivers, Ebonyi, Abia, Anambra and Akwa Ibom states, where no less than twenty-nine (29) police officers lost their lives between January 8 to May 7, 2021, with an unspecified number of others wounded, according to reports, daily assail our ears and eyes.”
“This is totally unacceptable in a society that wishes to maintain law and order; for who maintains law and order if police officers are routinely maimed or murdered in the course of their duty? Who will take charge when those saddled with the task of protecting the people are killed indiscriminately? Something has to be done immediately.”
“We seriously condemn the barbaric act of the killing of seven police officers on the night of May 7, 2021, by unknown gunmen in Rivers state, during which one of them was beheaded.”
“We call on the President and the acting Inspector General of Police to quickly look into and adopt strategies to protect the police as they go about their lawful duties.”
