” Bank robberies, which has claimed the lives of innocent citizens, have been recorded more than once lately in Ondo, Oyo and Ogun State.
” it’s important to note that any leader who fails in the security of lives and properties of the people he represents has failed in all ramifications.
Speaking on insecurity generally in the country, the Coalition said that ” lt is with the utmost sense of proactiveness and great concern to the sustainability of our preserved peace as a Nation, that the Oodua Youth Coalition calls on the President of Nigeria, Gen. Muhammad Buhari to, as a matter of urgency, provide the Nigerian Military with the necessary institutional and moral support to arrest the heightened insecurity challenges confronting the country.
“This call becomes important as a result of the unknown gunmen invasion of the Nigeria Defense Academy (NDA), Kaduna and the brutal killings happening in Jos and different parts of the country.
” The ugly situations which send a negative signal to the Nigerian populace and international community, that Nigeria is losing the fight against insecurity, shouldn’t go unaddressed swiftly.
