The pan-Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, has called on the   Federal Government of Nigeria to immediately allow states to set up their police forces, empower the existing security agencies and stop treating terrorists with kid gloves.

The group feared that Nigeria may be heading the Afghanistan way following the Kaduna airport attack by terrorists.

In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, the organization said, “It is a matter of serious concern that these security infractions happened at a time that the government kept assuring us that it was on top of the situation. Some of these attacks by terrorists even occurred in broad daylight, that of Kaduna airport and that of Enugu for instance.

“With terrorists having the audacity to attack a national airport despite all the available security apparatus, it means that hardly is anywhere safe any longer in the country. The Federal Government should immediately allow states to set up their police forces, empower the existing security agencies and stop treating terrorists with kid gloves. These must be done immediately so that Nigeria does not go the Afghanistan way.”

Recall that terrorists on Saturday, attacked the Kaduna International Airport located in Igabi Local Government Area the Kaduna State, killing a security official attached to the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency, NAMA, and injuring many.
