More Nigerians have re-echoed the call for the establishment of state police and increased community policing to check the challenge of insecurity in the country.

A guest on the ABS, Radio Audience participatory programme, “Press Review,” Sir Alex Onukwue, while reacting on newspaper headline on Benue killings, lamented that the federal Government has failed to properly secure the lives of Nigerians, noting that to strengthen community policing would provide more effective security infrastructure to combat the threat of the rampaging herdsmen.
Sir Alex reminded the federal government that the primary responsibility of every administration is to secure the lives of the citizens and provide conducive environment for people to live.
He regretted that the country’s indices of growth and development have remained unimpressive over the years and called on the National Assembly to rise up to the challenge of checking the excesses and lapses of the Executive arm.
Another guest, Chief Mike Odumodu, urged the federal Government to give attention to the deplorable condition of the federal roads in the South East.
Chief Odumodu lamented that some roads in the country inspite of the fact that they have been in the budget for many years, have remained neglected and abandoned.
Some callers to the programme, Chibueze from Ukpo, Chinemeze and Chidi from Nsugbe, called for collective efforts against the prevailing killings in the country.
