OPINION: Insecurity in Ibarapa, the time to declare State of Emergency is now – By Isiaka Kehinde

2 Min Read

The disheartening report from Ibarapa is sending a wave of trepidation and jitters down the spine of the community members and residents.

The kidnapping and killing of Alhaja Serifat and two others is sending a signal to people that they are no longer safe, thus besmirching the good reputation of the government as people are no longer sleeping with their two eyes closed.

I was told that their is a solidarity call for 7 day down tool by all owners of filling stations in ibarapa to register their angst.

In a similar development,Alh Monsuru Aderoju an Aig, was also reported to have been kidnapped in ibarapa North by men suspected to be fulani herdsmen. Alh Aderoju was said to have been taken away in front of his friend’s petrol station in Igangan along iganah road. His whereabouts till now is unknown.

Before government will be branded as insensitive to people’s plight and taint for dereliction to it’s primary duty of saving lives, I will advise that all stakeholders including security heads ,traditional rulers n opinion moulders be invited for a crucial meeting to obviate the state of insecurity in the area once n for all.

I also suggest the declaration of emergency on security in the axis for the period.
It’s Crystal clear that those terrorizing the area don’t fall from heaven like snow , they are living n mingling with people. They need to be fished out like a rabbit in it’s lair, thanks.
