In the space of 7 weeks owo has been attacked twice there is cause for concern,Akeredolu needs to be pro active because I know he is so passionate about anything that haens to his people and his decisions are always decisive,they really need to re strategize.

Terrorists! Terrorists! Terrorists! Buhari government should have the blame for this. The country is ravaged with attacks on innocent citizens and nothing seems to help the victims from getting attacked repeatedly. This government should leave office today and declare a state of emergency against this terrorists groups. We citizens are tired of the insecurity level of Nigeria and would like to govern ourselves. This ruling party APC should be probe for what has happened in Nigeria for the pass 7.5 years. We demand the rights to govern ourselves accordingly and safe keep our community. Buhari govt must go now.

The looming insecurity in this country has not still be diverted. I really don’t know what is actually wrong. People are being constantly killed and the government who has the Monopoly of the use of force is still powereless to act. I believe all the criminals perpetrating theses heinous acts will be brought to book soon by God’s grace.

What happened in Owo local Ondo state this pass Wednesday is in no way connected to the terrorist since their target is the workers on the construction site. Anyway, security should be beefed up in this area to prevent further reoccurent of these kinds of incidence.

The Ondo state government need to work on the security structure of Owo local government. The repeated gun attack in that area (though not connected to terrorist) expose the porosity in security defense of that area.

When I saw the unknown gunmen threatening to kidnap our president, I knew our security had completely failed. In order to fix the compromised security and keep us safe, we need a new government. I just hope the victims recover quickly.

This is the 2nd attack in owo in the space of 2 months. Why are they paying the military personnel if they won’t protect the citizens. The security system is a total mess, the government really need to work on it.

Hmm, so these people just attacked the construction site without having to gain anything or having any serious motive because why will you attack a construction company? I dont see the gain

The level of insecurity in Nigeria has gotten to the worst stage.

Everybody should be on the watch for their own safety.

Ondo security agent should be more vigilant to avoid such occurrence again.

The Ondo state security is so bad, and their governor has to buff the security because right now, the people over there won’t be feeling safe in their homes at all.

The people of Owo needs to be very careful and vigilant because these attacks are already becoming too constant and it will affect them a lot.

In the last two months, there have been two attacks in Owo. If the military members aren’t going to defend the populace, why are they being paid? Government needs to take immediate action since the security system is a complete shambles.

I hope the injured people in this attack got first-hand treatment and do not see it as a result of this attack because that will be very sad. We need to change in this country.
