A group known as the Conference for the Actualization of Human Right has said that the high rate of insecurity in the land may stop elections from holding in 2023.
In an interview with newsmen, the Director-General of the Conference, Omemiroro Maxwell Ogedegbe Nigeria was in a very terrible state, noting that, “the nation is at war with itself.”
According to him, the rate of kidnapping, armed robbery, assassination, terrorism, banditry and others is too .
He stressed that, “injustice and criminals” have taken over Delta State.
According to him, “recently, we heard of the attack on Abuja-Kaduna railway. Two lawyers and a driver were kidnapped along the Benin/Ekpoma expressway. At the end of the day, the kidnappers were conveniently discussing with the families, ransom was paid before the lawyers were released.
“This is a country that gave us the impression that there was something we had to do with biometric, NIN. With all of these arrangements in place, it will be impossible for kidnappers to have a field day. But that’s no longer the case.
“Kidnappers are having a field day in Nigeria and the government only sit back and continue to milk the people, our collective wealth that has trickled into the government purse is what government is busy enjoying.
“The personnel that should be asked to protect Nigerians have been assigned to politicians for the purpose of protecting VIP’s. We have been left in a very serious situation.
“The few security officers that are left are only out to harass and brutalize innocent citizens.”
