“Police, other Security Agencies not well motivated, not well equipped”
The Coalition of Northern Groups, Katsina State Chapter has said that the Nigerian security operatives cannot effectively combat the ravaging spate of terrorism bedevilling the country.
The group claimed that the operatives are grossly under-staffed, ill-equipped, and poorly motivated to fight and win the anti-terrorism war.
The group stressed that the federal government has been showing lackadaisical attitude towards the welfare of the security operatives and will likely not win the war against terrorism such way.
The group made the assertion in his condolence message addressed to the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, concerning the recent killings of the Jibia Divisional Police Officer DPO, Abdulkadiri Rano, and 50 others in the last four weeks in the state.
In the message signed by jts Northwest Coordinator, Jamilu Aliyu Charanchi, the group said they are “deeply disturbed by the despicable and unchecked decimation and emasculation of our people; destruction of livelihoods; abuse and exploitation of women and extortion of poverty-stricken communities by terrorists in the State.”
As a way out of the quagmire, the CNG called on traditional rulers to ensure that they stand with their people at this difficult times to enable combat the menace of the terrorists bedeviling the state.
CNG therefore recommends that: “Communities must work together under the traditional institutions, religious leaders and community leaders are to source for alternative method of preserving and protecting their lives, properties and communities as our security architecture proves incapacitated and or reluctant to decisively and resolutely deal with the problem.”
