Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, has lamented about the Federal Government’s failure to protect life and property of Nigerians, referencing the recent spate of killings in recent weeks.

Whilst addressing attendees as a key speaker in Thursday’s meeting of the Attorney-Generals of the 36 States of Nigeria, Governor Akeredolu warned that citizens might have no other choice but to arm themselves; due to failed policing in Nigeria. He stated that the police have been overwhelmed by the incessant crimes and atrocities to have befallen the country.

‘We will carry arms very soon, Oga Malami (the AGF), there is no other way, the police have failed,’ the governor said.

Rotimi Akeredolu opined that the police ‘close shop’ if the requirements to carry out their responsibilities aren’t provided by the FG.

Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), also took out time to speak on the state of security in the nation, before blaming the state governors for the mismanagement of the current system of security.

Malami insisted that the governors had lost the right to a restructuring in this regard.

‘The present controversies surrounding the Paris/London Club loan refunds could have been avoided if the NGF/state governments and ALGON, who engaged the services of consultants and contractors honoured their agreements.

‘NGF and ALGON have not denied engaging the consultants and contractors on behalf of their respective states and local governments,’ Malami revealed.

Meanwhile, reps have called for the raid on forest reserves following the mass burial held for victims of the Owo Church attack. The Amotekuns have also vowed to ensure to ensure there is no repeat of the damning incident.
