Ondo state Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu has again weighed in on the widespread insecurity witnessed across the country.
Delivering a keynote address at the opening of the ongoing Attorneys-General of the 36 States, the Ondo State Governor noted that police are overwhelmed.
Akeredolu who disclosed that the police blamed the non-availability of vehicles for their inability to mobilize to the scene of the recent Owo attack, asked the Police to “close shop” if the Federal Government could not meet its equipment needs.
The Governor also challenged states to restructure the country by, among others, setting up their own anti-graft agencies.
He also said Nigerians might be forced to bear arms soon as the mass killings, kidnappings, and other serious security failures around the country had shown that a central police command was ineffective to keep Nigerians safe.
“The Police have failed.
“We will carry arms very soon. Oga Malami. There is no other way.”
