Weakness in security architecture may worsen current insecurity, Youth parliament warns

Speaker, Nigerian Youth Parliament, Mubarak Mijinyawa, has warned that many youths were of the belief that the Nigerian security forces had been defeated almost completely by insurgents, hence, their weakness in protecting the lives and property of Nigerians.

According to him, many youths have already begun to loose hope in the country and are making nasty decisions of getting involved into kidnapping and abduction, human trafficking, banditry and other social vices due to continuous hunger and suffering of many Nigerians.

In a statement made available to our correspondent in Gombe, Mijinyawa warned that unless urgent and drastic measures were taken to address the rising wave of insecurity in the country, a second wave of #ENDSARS protests against insecurity may also be on the way.

He said, “the issue around insecurity, poor health care, youth restiveness and ethnic bigotry has been the causes of all local and national demonstrations, riots and protests depending on the region where these are happening”.

He added that, ” it has been revealed that failures of Government on some of the aforementioned are the main reasons that triggered Youths in some parts of the country like Lagos and Abuja to protest the recent #ENDSARS protests that caused serious tension in the country which in turn led to increased regional bigotry between the ethnic groups in the regions of the country”.
