On the Monday, the recent attack on the Police Headquarters and the Nigerian Correctional Facility in Imo State, was discussed on the panel of the Journalists' Hangout, which was hosted by Ayodele Ozugbakun.
Here's what they said:
James Asuquo: Ayo it is high time the Federal Government stopped focusing only on the North-East, North-West or the South-West. The South-East and the South-South, should also be seen as being prospective trouble spots.
In a Vanguard report of today, they took a stock of the number of police stations that have been burnt and policemen that have been killed and they counted about 67 police officers that have been killed between December 2020 and March 2021. These killings may either be coordinated or isolated however, from the look of things most of the killing of police men recorded on the South-East, have the same pattern.
The Federal Government, needs to do something about this situation before Nigeria is moved into a situation of anarchy.
Moshood Jamiu: What happened in Imo State is quite scary and as we can see, the gory details are all over the internet. These hoodlums, sang at a roundabout close to the Government house for 30minutes, before going to the Nigerian Prisons to release people.
If you are conversant with Owerri, you will agree with me that the roundabout where these hoodlums sang at, is about a minute's walk from the Government house and the Nigerian Prisons building and the Police Headquarters, are all within that vicinity.
This situation is scary because, reports reaching us have it that these hoodlums attacked the Nigerian Prisons from between 1am to 3am, hence, the Police had a window period of two hours to reinforce and respond to these attacks, yet nothing like that happened.
