- It also tasked the Federal Government to be more decisive in its handling of the country’s security
Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has blamed the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government for the spate of kidnapping and terrorism in Nigeria.
Its leaders stated this during a meeting in Ogun State on Tuesday and was contained in a communique issued by Afenifere’s spokesman, Jare Ajayi.
Afenifere explained that the double-standard by the Buhari-led Federal Government is responsible for the rising tide of kidnapping and terrorism in Nigeria.
It also tasked the Federal Government to be more decisive in its handling of the country’s security.
“After exhaustive deliberations on these issues, the following Resolutions were made: Afenifere noted with serious concern the security problems that are festering in the country.
“The meeting, therefore, for the umpteenth time, called on the Federal Government and security agencies to buckle up and be more decisive in the way they tackle security issues that have made living in Nigeria painful, short and brutish.
“We call on the government and security agencies to stop the kid-glove treatment with which terrorists and kidnappers are being handled.
“Afenifere believes that terrorism and related vices including kidnapping are on the increase in parts of the country because of the double standard being played by the government and security agencies on this matter,” the communique read in part.
