Adams also expressed dismay on the recent governor’s recent visit to the Chief of Army Staff, adding that the government ought to have moved faster than that considering level of security threat presently facing the state.

“We have never experienced this type of dormant security apparatus in the state before, despite the terrible and unprecedented security menace in the state, in which kidnappers and banditry have taken over communities in the state, it is indeed inexplicable that no single arrest has been made.

“The security architecture in the state has gone into coma, no reliable intelligence gathering mechanism to nip criminality in the bud, nor dependable gallantry to effect arrest.

“It is even astonishing the way serious security issue has been reduced to comic relief, as police in the state apprehended cripples at the scene of crime without any logical evidence, where a civil servant in the state was murdered in cold blood by bandits.

“The government is also moving with a speed of ailing snail; can u imagine the governor is still begging the Military for help, reminding Chief of Army Staff of letter at this moment when his state is under the siege of criminals.
