Senator Adeola Threatens To Embrace Self-Defence Over Insecurity by dre11(m): 5:44am On Feb 15
There is palpable fear that the crisis between Fulani herders and communities in the South-West part of the country may deteriorate, following threats by Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West), to join his Yewa kinsmen in Ogun State for self defence.

This was as the senator representing Cross River South in the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Gershom Bassey, said technology was the best answer to the worrisome state of security in the country.

Adeola, who made the threat in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, by his Special Adviser on Media, Kayode Odunaro, said his decision was provoked by the failure of security agencies to stem the tide of incessant attacks of communities in Yewaland by Fulani herdsmen.

According to him, the federal and Ogun State governments had failed to stop the incessant attacks on communities in his country home. He said the latest of such attacks were the ones brazenly carried out in Yewa North, Imeko, Afon, Ipokia and Yewa South Local Government Council two weeks ago.

The politician lamented that the said attacks resulted in manydeathsanddestruction of property withouttheauthorities taking prompt action to forestall further occurrence. “Let it be stated that as a representative of the people sworn to uphold the constitution and the laws of the land, including the right to self defence,

I will not hesitate to join my people in the defense of their rights to life, property and peaceful coexistence with others at the back of seeming failure of duly constituted authorities to defend such fundamental rights against anyone or forces,” he said.

He said that having waited in vain for over two weeks for government to take action against the acts of arson and murder, he was calling on the Federal Government and the Ogun State Government to rise up to its constitutional obligations of protecting the lives and property of all Nigerians, particularly the people of Yewaland.

He warned that such attacks leading to many deaths and destruction of property of law abiding Nigerians should not be glossed over, saying that failure to address the matter might compel people in the affected communities to resort to self help.

“I recalled that at various occasions on the floor of the Senate, I contributed to debates on the deteriorating security situation in different parts of the country and was always agitating for restructuring of the security architecture of the country “I made a similar contribution to a Senate wide motion on general security only last week.

Now, something specific must be done urgently to stop the arson and killings in Yewaland by the relevant authorities and security agencies,” he stressed.

He, however, noted that he was aware that the state government had set up a special committee on the ugly situation in Yewaland and elsewhere in the state, but stressed that the body should urgently turn in a workable report/solution to the government to stem the spate of arson and killing against people in Yewaland.

The truth is that the Nigeria state don't have enough police ... Let me rephrase it.. they don't ve well trained and adequately equipped policing force.

So what is the best bet?

No, not self defense.. we are still toddlers. It is like giving guns to 10 years old kids that have just finished watching the movie, Rambo... The best bet is a regional police structure. This will work because you have no one to blame again if this is put in place. The blame game will stop, and the federal government will be relieved to face orther pressing issues

Something I don't really understand Nigerians mentality. So you are waiting for approval before you defend yourself or the community. Continue waiting for police

The gun toting Fulanis didn’t take permission from anyone before acquiring assault rifles.

Very soon the inaction of the Fg as regards these Northern brigands might lead to a breakdown of law & order to such proportions that the NPF cannot handle in the South.

Bear in mind that the whole police is just a little over 300k while the population of the South is in millions!

Thee is a pattern it followed in the north. After they attacked armless villages for years, they started visiting the leaders in their home. Thesame can happen in the southwest if these killings go on and on unchecked and unreplied.

Self defence is not treason. Stop thinking like a tadpole.

That is why Boko haram, kidnappers, herdsmen and bandits are using you Northern objects for killing competition.

Thank God some of you are now reasoning the way you ought to have.
Na those mumu governors I still dey shake my head for.
At this point, I feel the Kings of each area affected should step in and defend their territories.
Governors are not affected neither are they moved. But they call you kabiesi/King because you have people in your town or village ni o. If Foolani kill your people finish without acting, who will chant that kabiesi?

Make everybody wise.... Buhari will use his hands to disintegrate this country by the special grace of God grin grin grin
