He noted that Nigerians are presently at the mercy of killer herdsmen, kidnappers, and other criminals.

Ayokinle also asked that the federal government should launch an investigation into how there is an increase in arms in the nation, where those arms come and come up with how to deal with it.

He said: “As we have always said, the time is more than ripe for each state and community to have its own security outfit like other developed nations.

“It is high time we do an appraisal on how we have been doing things and how things are supposed to be done.“

The CAN president also questioned why there is an increase in unknown gunmen dominance in the country.

“The people that are attacked know those attacking them but what they don’t know are those equipping their attackers with ammunition,” he said.
