House of reps say Nigeria security system is sick



Members of the House of Representatives on Thursday condemned the recent robbery attacks on commercial banks in Offa, Kwara State, saying the incidents were signs that the country’s security system was “sick.”

The lawmakers said the situation called for the overhauling of the security system.

The House, which was presided over by the Speaker, Mr. Yakubu Dogara, asked the police to investigate the attacks and ensure the prosecution of the suspects.

A member from Kwara State, Mr. Oluyonu Tokpe, had raised the robbery attacks as a matter of urgent public importance, urging the Federal Government to beef up security in the entire Southern Senatorial District in Kwara State.

Tokpe recalled how about 30 armed robbers invaded Offa in broad daylight, shooting at any targets on sight and raiding at least four commercial banks.

Tokpe said, “Mr. Speaker, they attacked police stations, killed the policemen; they shot at our people and proceeded to attack banks freely without response from any quarters.

“As we speak, all the banks in Kwara-South are shut down. You can imagine the implication on the economy and business of the state.

“If armed robbers can enter a town, drive in a convoy of about 10 vehicles, sack a police station and raid banks, it calls for an urgent enquiry.”

The Deputy Speaker of the House, Mr. Yussuff Lasun, observed that the pattern of the attacks suggested that there might be something more to it.

“This was exactly the same way Boko Haram started and became a problem the country is battling till today”, he added.

A member from Kwara State, Mr. Ahman Pategi, told the House that from the eyewitnesses’ accounts, the robbers operated for more than one and a half hours.

We need to check the entire security apparatus of our country. These people killed eight policemen and anyone they saw, they shot and killed the person. This is quite disturbing, to say the least.

“Yes, I am a member of the All Progressives Congress. One of the three things the party and Mr. President promised Nigerians in 2015 was security.

“Today, we are not achieving it and we must confront this reality and tackle the security issues all over the country.”

While supporting the motion, the Chairman, House Committee on Works, Mr. Toby Okechukwu, noted that the evidence of a sick security system was behind the growing calls for Nigerians to defend themselves.

He said, “Gen. T.Y. Danjuma has made this call; just days ago, the Governor of Benue State (Samuel Ortom) called for self-help; in Birnin Gwari, the emir has asked people to defend themselves; it is happening everywhere.

“In a country where people are calling for self-help, what it means is that the conventional or official security system is dysfunctional.

When a state is unable to provide security, something must give way.

“The role of government is to find solutions to crises and insecurity. The role of government is not to find faults or resort to blame-game. If a government wants to continue to pass blame, then it must give way.”

The motion was passed in a unanimous voice vote.
