Justice will stem violence, killings — Former VP Atiku

A former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, on Tuesday said the enthronement of justice would stem violence and killings in Nigeria.

He stated that renewed attacks  in Plateau and Taraba states and many other parts of the country were disturbing.

According to a statement by his Media Adviser, Mr Paul Ibe, the 2019 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party candidate also said the attacks were indications of how much work was needed to be done by the  government and  other stakeholders to beef up the country’s internal security apparatus.

He said, “While it is fair to appreciate the military and other security outfits for their spirited efforts to clear all trenches of bandits’ hideouts, it is expedient that we re-evaluate and recalibrate the country’s security architecture through community policing and any other of such mechanisms that allows for a more far-reaching inclusive security networking.

“To be sure that we are one step ahead of criminals who pose existential threats to our security, it is important that we empower our justice system with the belief that when stiff punishments are handed down on these criminals, there will be a deterrent for a repeat of this nature of crime.” Punch
