He said: “The security situation in the Nation’s capital city continued to deteriorate, while government pretend nothing is happening. As a resident in the capital city, I x-rayed the invasion of the Nation’s capital city gradually but aggressively from the periphery and if no measure is taken sharply, the insurgents may extend their attack to the city centre.
The University Dom…. also recalled the bombing of the Nyanya urban mass motor park in May 2014, the bombing of St. Theresa catholic church, Madalla, a suburb town bordering Abuja and Niger state on 25th December 2012, saying that the experience at that time alone was enough to put up strategic measures that could curtail further attacks, “but reverse is the case.

In the review, he stated that “it appears the insurgents are gaining more confidence as it was reported that they ambushed and killed military men at a location in Bwari Area council and at the foot of Zuma rock in Madalla on separate attack in July 2022.

He further recalled the attacked of the sheda Village of Kwali Area Council and kidnapped of couple, leading to closure of the only Unity school, Fed. Govt College Kwali, within the vicinity in July 2022.

He addied that the effect of that incident was the panic generated and the harp hazard conduct of terminal examinations and force shutting down of other public and private secondary and primary Schools in the capital city.

He also called on the government to expedite action in resolving the lingering industrial crisis between the University unions (ASUU, SSANU, NASU and NAAT) to enable the teaming youths go back to their studies centre to avert being recruited into gangs and groups that may pose more danger to the nation.
