Afenifere to FG:  Take more decisive action to end insecurity 

The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural and socio-political organisation, Afenifere, Saturday tasked the federal government and security agencies to be more innovative and decisive to end insecurity in the country.

Afenifere in a statement issued by its national publicity secretary, Comrade Jare Ajayi,  stated that this will enhance people’s welfare and ensure the sustenance of Nigeria as one of the top investments’ destinations in Africa.

Afenifere said,  “To put a serious check on all these, there is the urgent need to dig deep into the roots of the menace and to be decisive in applying the necessary measures. 

“The starting point is to probe into the motivation for kidnapping and related banditry. Three identified motives are economic, ideology and politics. Each of these has sub-strata and sometimes interlopers.

“For instance, the economic factor of banditry could have territorial claims as an underpinning. It can also be as a result of some interests wanting to assert political superiority.”
