Sokoto State Governor, Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal, has said that the cases of killings in parts of the country is a show that the leadership has failed.
He said this lamenting that the harvests of death were not what Nigerians voted for in 2015.
Tambuwal, who canvassed for a comprehensive overhaul of the nation’s security architecture while commiserating with families of people who lost their lives in the killings, said the current security system is not working.
He said “the growing spate of mindless shedding of innocent blood, especially of policemen and other security personnel on their lawful duty posts, has brought a new dimension to the reprehensible state of insecurity in the country.”
In a statement, the governor said with the killing of security agents on their duty posts, “the question from every law-abiding citizen today is: ‘Who will protect us, when even those constitutionally charged with the responsibility of protecting our lives and property have, themselves, become vulnerable targets of criminals?
Where shall we run to for protection, when the institutions of State put in place to protect us are being progressively dismantled by opportunistic criminality and the trained personnel are also on the run?”
