The Pan Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere has said the insecurity is getting out of control, saying Nigerians are completely unsafe.
The Publicity Secretary of the group, Mr Yinka Odumakin, said this while expressing concerns over indiscriminate killings by sundry cartels of gunmen, kidnapping for ransom, armed robbery and other violent crimes which are rampant in many parts of the country.
Odumakin noted that the Fulani herdsmen have taken over the southwest region and said: “We are completely unsafe”.
“The Fulani orchestrated insecurity has taken over the Southwest and people cannot sleep with their two eyes closed, our women are being raped and people are being killed on a daily basis including Obas on the street.
“Our governors are not giving lawful orders, even the President aides are saying you can’t chase herders out of the forests.
“We are completely unsafe. Look at a whole Nobel Laureate, last weekend, he was trying to ask the President what to do about herdsmen, three days later they took over his house in Abeokuta.
“And somebody was saying that Soyinka’s house was unfenced. Go to London, go to America, you will see a lot of unfenced houses. Will they go and be keeping cows there because they are fenced,” he said
He said Nigerians may resolve to defend themselves from the armed bandits saying “General Danjuma has already told us some two years ago that if we are not ready to defend ourselves, they will kill us one by one.”
