Gbajabiamila noted that at such a time when insurgency is shaking the foundation of the country, it is proper to admit that the efforts to tackle insecurity have so far not yielded the desired results.

Meanwhile, Senator Clifford Ordia of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) called on the federal government to overhaul Nigeria’s security architecture, warning that no one was safe anymore in the country.

Ordia said this after an armed gang attacked his convoy while he was returning from Edo to Abuja on Monday, April 26.
