Nigerians will resort to self help over insecurity-CAN
The umbrella body of Christians in Nigeria, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari that the only option left for citizens of the country so far, is to resort to self help over the unceasing killings of innocent people by a combination of violent criminals including Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers and militias, among others.
The CAN however said such action would be too dangerous for the country as it would mean total anarchy. It therefore asked the president to find solutions to the killings before things go completely out of hands.
According to a report earlier published by Thisday, the Special Assistant to the CAN president on Media and Strategic Communication, Pastor Adebayo Oladeji, gave the warning on Saturday, on behalf of the association.
He was quoted to have said that the situation was so bad that everywhere appeared to be unsafe, adding that criminals now operate as though the country’s security operatives were on holiday.
