Chief Onitiri noted that up till now, no killer herdsmen have been arrested and prosecuted. Nigerians now wonder if Buhari administration is behind these criminals.

He said this is why the government has to take a decisive and ruthless action against any Nigerian masquerading as bandits without fear or favour.

Chief Onitiri emphasised the need for the National Assembly to enact a law to check- mate all criminal elements bearing sophisticated weapons in our forests and on the highways. It is illegal and criminal.

Besides, the National Assembly should ban open grazing in the country. In the advanced nations, cows were not seen on the streets anymore. They should adopt modern farming traditions.

The social critic pointed out that with the security situation in the country, it is evidently clear that Nigeria is under the siege of kidnappers, robbers, cultists, ritualistic, and killer herdsmen and nobody is safe anymore.

It is one of the most insecure countries in the world to live. It is most irresponsible and reckless of any government official to say Nigeria is secured today than 2015.

The paramount responsibility of any government is to secure lives and property of its citizens. Any government that cannot protect its citizens should resign honourably, he said
