Experts in peace and conflicts as well as human rights advocates have urged the federal government to embrace the emergence of regional security in the country .
This is part of the recommendations reached at the end of an online roundtable discussion held to highlight the likely implications of the emergence of regional security apparatus in Nigeria with specific focus on Amotekun in the South West region of the country.
The roundtable was organised by the Centre for Peace and Development (CEPAD) of Veritas University, Abuja in collaboration with Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung.
In the communiqué signed by the director, CEPAD, Rev. Fr. Dr. Innocent Jooji, the experts observed that with the rise in insecurity especially as it relates to the war against Boko Haram and banditry by unidentified gunmen, farmers and herdsmen clashes, the federal government has become incapable of maintaining security in the country.
They concluded that there is therefore the need for some sort of complementary security support system, stressing that the emergence of Amotekun can be attributed to the inability of the federal government to provide adequate security of lives and properties in the country, as well as the imperative.
for the state governors to protect and defend their people against criminality.
