The Vigilante Group of Nigeria on Tuesday says it will check insecurity in the southwest zone within six months if empowered and incorporated into the security architecture.
The group made this known at the Stakeholders’ Security summit ongoing in Ibadan.
Speaking on behalf of the group, Ondo State Commandant of the group Dr. Akinwumi Gideon who represented the Zonal Coordinator Southwest Jimoh Aliu stated the solution in the southwest zone lies with Governors and Traditional rulers.
According to him, the vigilante group needs the backing of governors in zone to absorb them into internal security system to flush out aggressors on farmlands and kidnappers on highways.
Dr. Gideon stated that formal security agencies cannot fully tackle insecurity problems hence enlisting the group will quicken early resolution of the insecurity problems.
