Akeredolu Sends Warning To FG Says Police Have Failed Nigerians (Read Details)

Rotimi Akeredolu, Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum, has once again spoken out about the country’s widespread insecurity.
The Ondo state governor, speaking at the opening of the ongoing Attorneys-General of the 36 States Conference, said that police are overworked.

Akeredolu, who said the police’s inability to mobilise to the scene of the recent Owo attack was due to a lack of vehicles, asked the police to “close shop” if the Federal Government could not meet their equipment needs.

The Governor also challenged states to restructure the country by establishing their own anti-graft agencies, among other things.

He also suggested that Nigerians may be forced to bear arms in the near future, citing mass killings, kidnappings, and other serious security failures across the country as evidence that a central police command is ineffective in keeping Nigerians safe.

Akeredolu said:-
“The Police have failed.

“We will carry arms very soon. Oga Malami. There is no other way.”
