According to the traumatised woman, she stated: ‘The problem of insecurity of lives and property is not a new occurrence in Nigeria, but I never knew how bad it was till I almost fell a victim.
” I want to call on the security forces to beam more search lights on the rampant insecurity challenges we have as a nation that has seen me running from pillar to post, including switching homes and location to escape being attacked by unknown gunmen in the last one year.
” I have made formal reports of the incidents to the Police, but I still feel so unsafe. I only hope and pray that all would be well. I want the authorities to wade in and put a total stop to the insecurity in the land’. ” She stressed.
