It is evident that banditry attacks have assumed pandemic levels, especially in the North. We need a new security architecture to stem this massacre of innocent lives. My deepest condolences to the families of all those affected.

When government shows that it cares, the citizens will fare well. Now is the time to apply reason, rather than brute force.  And on that basis, I urge to talk to the nation, and particularly the youth of Nigeria.
