A PDP Chieftain and The National Coordinator of Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Dr Emeka Kalu, has frowned at the continued destruction of security facilities around the Southeastern part of Nigeria, saying that it is an unacceptable situation that should worry any well-meaning Nigerian.
His reaction followed the news of intentional, unprovoked razing of the Police Headquarters in his home, Bende, which was attacked by Unknown Gunmen today. He condemned the action in its entirety as barbaric and cowardly because this will amount to giving wings to crime to thrive.
Chief Kalu, therefore, used the opportunity to call on the Abia State Government to double her efforts at securing the state, while at the same time prevailing on the federal government to pragmatically look into all the possible remote causes of the incessant attacks with the view to addressing them once and for all.
“I have always advised and I will continue to do so. No country fights a war with her people and win, it will be very wise for the government to drop force and try to adopt dislougue and permanent solution to our problems.
“From experience of history, the force can only calm agitation for a while, but dialogue will help us bury our differences, correct our errors and move on, that is what the nation needs at this point. DIALOGUE.
“If our security architecture completely shuts down, anarchy will surely be loosed upon Nigeria and even the lowly and the highly placed will not be spared.
“If some elements will try to boggle Aso Villa, then the security of other parts of Nigeria is as good as gone”. He said.
He further averred that there are other ways to register grievances without shooting ourselves in the legs, advising the police to keep working round the clock to ascertain the identity of these gunmen and bring them to justice.
