Insecurity: Nigerians no Longer Safe, NLC Decries Spate of Killings in the Country


The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has said Nigerians are no longer safe in the country amidst the spate of insecurity in the country.

Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday at the 4th Delegates Conference of National Association of Academic Technologists (NAAT), held at the University of Abuja, the Labour Union President, Comrade Ayuba Wabba urged President Muhammadu Buhari to end the insecurity in the country.

“People know where they are located and they come to operate from this place, hit soft targets and take over. They operated from 9.30 pm to about 12 in the night and nothing happens until they finished, adopted people and left. Some of our students were adopted.

“This is a very dangerous trend. If we were able to end the civil war which started in 1967 and ended in 1970; the insurgency started in 2009 and today, we are in 2020; if we cannot put it to an end once, I think there is a problem and we have to look at it.

“The land has been desecrated by the blood of the innocent, nobody is actually safe, because the people being killed are innocent, they don’t know what is happening and they are killed and therefore, our land has been desecrated by the blood of the innocent.

“We have to call the attention of various government agencies, the President to the issue of insecurity in the land so we can be able to make sure that this is brought to an end. We want an end to this issue of insecurity” Wabba said.

Wabba also disclosed that the NLC wrote the Borno state Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum to condole with him and the people of the state over Sunday’s burning of 30 people and several vehicles by Boko Haram.
