Criminals in Army uniforms attacked some wedding guests whose vehicle developed fault around the expressway.They were said to be trying to fix the car when the criminals struck and kidnapped all of them.The letter which drew criticism from many, including the Special Assistant to Oyo Governor on Student Affairs, Victor Olojede, threatened protest by the students if the Governor did not take immediate action to address the issues.According to Afenifere, the incident was another evidence that governments in Nigeria have failed in their primary duties of providing security and welfare for the people.Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State had revealed in October that Governor Aminu Tambuwal (Sokoto), Governor Bala Mohammed (Bauchi) and former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar had all indicated their desire to contest the Presidential election.The group in a statement recalled that the latest incident was coming barely a week after some people were reportedly kidnapped at Onigaari Village on the same Lagos/Ibadan Expressway just as some travellers, including a popular actress, narrowly escaped being kidnapped on the same road last Saturday.However, the Union released a statement via its Twitter page on Monday to apologise for the manner in which the Governor was addressed in the previous letter titled “ADDRESS INSECURITY NOW, OUR STUDENTS ARE DYING.Afenifere also raised the alarm that some displaced terrorists led by one Belo Turji were making incursion into Yorubaland.The lawmakers will have to commence work as soon as possible for these bills to stand a chance.

“It is therefore incumbent on the President to allow State Police, strengthen the military with equipment and right motivation, prevail on the Attorney General to allow rule of law to operate without fear or favour, stop nepostic justice, enable the military to mop-up too much weapons in the hands of unauthorised persons and promptly convene a meeting of ethnic nationalities and interest groups,” the statement added.Afenifere acknowledged that Buhari was aware of the security situation going by his recent expressions on the issue.” The former Senate President said the South-East ought to produce the next President.Dear Reader, Every day, we work hard to provide readers such as you with the most accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive information.Quality journalism costs money.Today, we're asking that you support us to do more.George, however, said he was confident that the party would be able to resolve its challenges.It is unclear how fast will the lawmakers act on these.
