The Conference for the Actualization of Human Right, has explained that except lasting solution is proffered to insecurity in Nigeria, there may be no election in 2023.
The Director-General of the group, Mr. Omemiroro Maxwell Ogedegbe gave the warning during a chat with DAILY POST correspondent at his office in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
The legal practitioner lamented that the rate of armed robbery, kidnapping, assassination, terrorism, and other criminalities was alarming.
According to Ogedegbe: “recently, we heard of the attack on Abuja-Kaduna railway. Two lawyers and a driver were kidnapped along the Benin/Ekpoma expressway. At the end of the day, the kidnappers were conveniently discussing with the families, ransom was paid before the lawyers were released.

“This is a country that gave us the impression that there was something we had to do with biometric, NIN. With all of these arrangements in place, it will be impossible for kidnappers to have a field day. But that’s no longer the case.
“Kidnappers are having a field day in Nigeria and the government only sit back and continue to milk the people, our collective wealth that has trickled into the government purse is what government is busy enjoying.
“The personnel that should be asked to protect Nigerians have been assigned to politicians for the purpose of protecting VIP’s. We have been left in a very serious situation.
“The few security officers that are left are only out to harass and brutalize innocent citizens.”
