Rotimi Akeredolu, chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum, has once again commented on the widespread insecurity observed around the nation.
During his keynote statement at the inauguration of the Attorneys-General of the 36 States, the governor of Ondo stated that the police force is overburdened.
Akeredolu, who claimed that the police cited a lack of cars for their failure to respond to the latest incident in Owo, urged the Police to “shut shop” if the Federal Government was unable to satisfy their equipment requirements.
The Governor also urged the states to reorganise the nation by establishing their own anti-corruption institutions.
The mass killings, kidnappings, and other significant security failures around the country had demonstrated that a centralised police command was incapable at keeping Nigerians secure, he added.
“The Police have failed.
“We will carry arms very soon. Oga Malami. There is no other way.”
