The reality is that insecurity has become a major problem in almost every region of the country. Over the last few weeks, many people, including politicians and other prominent people have expressed their concerns over the rising rate of insecurity in the nation. Recall that the bandits have now started kidnapping university students, and in the last few days, the bandits have reportedly claimed the territory of 2 towns on the north. The bandits erected their flags at Geidam in Yobe and Kaure in Niger State.

Similarly in a recent interview with The Punch, a Niger Youth Leader pleaded with President Buhari to do something before they start taking laws into their hands. In this video, the youth said alleged that Fulani Herdsmen who carried AK-47 attacked a village. He said the president should act fast or they will start protecting themselves.
However, with the recent laments and cries of the citizens, then it is now clear that Nigerians are now angry. In my opinion, when people become angry, they'll start protecting themselves by any means. I must advise that the presidency must act fast to tackle insecurity before angry citizens start picking up arms to protect themselves. Please note that the moment angry citizens start taking insecurity issues into their hands, the more endangered these citizens become.

In conclusion, I suggest that President Buhari should meet with stakeholders and the head of security and military forces to strategize a lasting solution to end this spree of attacks in the country before citizens start to act on their own.
