He said the polarization of the country between ethnoreligious divisions had greatly impacted negatively on the political space.
“The level of insecurity is now very alarming that kidnapping for ransom and ritual killings is now a daily occurrence in every part of the country.
“It does look like our security agencies are overwhelmed by the sorry situation and are very helpless.”
Warning that there may be an uprising in the country, he said:
“I am sharing and airing the frustration of the majority of Nigerians who the nation is choking with the government seeming to be able to arrest the situation.
“I, however, call on President Muhamadu Buhari and his cabinet to seat up to address the shameful situation as the current trend, if not urgently addressed could spark an uprising across the country that would be more consequential than the #EndSars protest.”
