Do we not have competent soldiers that can combat these bandits. Something fishy is going on among our military personnel. There is a compromise, if not the army would have completely wipeout all the bandit and Boko Haram.

The extent of insecurity in Nigeria has now gone overboard. Constant killing and kidnapping has now been allowed and taken as a child’s play. The government needs to bed responsible and take accountability for the decline in securing the lives and properties of people.

I’m sure it’s clear by now that these bandits have no regards. Anyone can be vulnerable, a king has been kidnapped. The security of the country has deteriorated so bad. Almost Nobody is safe anymore.
It’s appalling! How long do we continue to live like this. We’re battling with a lot in this country already.

We keep on hearing that, insecurity in the Country. It is better for all the communities facing all this challenges should help themselves with local security before the kill them all. All we keep hearing from Government is will condemn while people are dying, everyone should be watchful don’t wait for Government.

We need to concentrate on the nation’s insecurity, and every citizen, not just the ruler, should be protected from any potential threats.

The governor of the state of Plateau should consider one answer to this issue, which is the fact that this region is a target area for kidnappings of rulers and put more effort in reducing it

Our government have already failed us in this country insecurity is getting worse and they are doing nothing to counter all this happening. No where is safe we can’t travel safely, we can’t move freely in our community in fear of the bandits. We need a very strong protection in this country.

The level of insecurity in this nation is going beyond control, this is tragic.

What could have been the faith of citizens if those we esteem high are also victims.

May God deliver our land.
