Insecurity: The peak of heartless bandits needs to be checkmated

There has been a terrible event that makes it extremely difficult to speak and impossible to remain silent. How could the government allow these terrorists to continue to terrorise our country with impunity?

Indeed, it is tragic and unbelievable for terrorists to have killed over 100 people on January 6, 2022. Not only that, they dare to prevent their burial. How could the government that claimed to be fighting security allow this to happen immediately after the president had an interview with a national broadcasting station? However, this shows the president has failed in his promises to secure the nation.

Indeed, we need to ask this pertinent question: where are the Super Tucanos that were recently acquired? Is our intelligence-gathering not sufficient enough to track these criminals and murderers in their enclaves? Should we continue giving them the field days to kill with sheer impunity?

We must change our method to send these heartless criminals to their maker to answer for the crimes they have committed against innocent Nigerians.

Mr President, enough is enough, with all due respect to your office. We can’t make any more excuses for you. Positive outcomes are the only language we understand. Nigeria must be protected in whatever way that is humanly possible. The unjustified death of our countrymen is strongly condemned and completely reprehensible.

I have a firm belief that the fight against insecurity cannot be won one-sided. Kinetic and non-kinetic approaches are paramount. Intelligence sharing is very essential at this juncture. All hands must be on deck to fight this war. Sophisticated weapons need to be used. 

May peace and tranquillity reign in our father’s land.
