The Ezendigbo of Oyo State, Dr. Alex Anozie, has asked the Federal Government to without delay, stop the killing of innocent citizens across the country.
Anozie made this disclosure via a statement made available to bioreports on Monday.
Our correspondent recalls that Nigeria had in the last few months witnessed a series of security breaches occasioned by kidnapping, killing of innocent citizens and attacks of innocent citizens by bandits, suspected Fulani herdsmen and armed robbers.

Anozie urged Buhari to do everything possible to address security challenges facing the country.
In a statement made available to bioreports in Ibadan, Anozie urged Buhari to ensure that there is justice and equity in the country.
He noted that if Nigeria or Biafra civil war could end within thirty months, there is no need for Boko Haram insurgency to last till this moment since 2009.
He wondered why the Boko Haram insurgency should continue to last for over twelve years despite the resources at the disposal of the federal government.
Anozie asked Buhari to order all Fulani herdsmen allegedly going around the country with AK47 and other destructive weapons to go back to where they came from.
He also advised the federal government to engage traditional rulers to solve security challenges facing the country.

He said “If the Nigeria/Biafra civil war that was so devastating could end within thirty months, one begins to wonder why the “Boko Haram, made up of a collection of few hundreds initially, but now thousands of dissidents, should continue to last for over twelve years now, against the federal might?”
“The Ezendigbo asked President Muhammadu Buhari to order all non-Nigerian Fulanis going around the country with AK47 and other destructive weapons to go back to where they came from.
“Anozie advised the Federal Government to engage traditional heads to talk to the youths, who are already tired of the situation in the country, saying the youths will listen to their traditional rulers and calm down.
“With all these done, the elders will find it easier to convince the Nigerian youths to calm down. Nobody wants to leave Nigeria when all these are in place. I may be right or wrong.”
