Legislation to provide a solid foundation for community policing is reportedly being considered by the National Assembly at this very moment.

Also, it mentioned that it is putting a lot of work into enhancing intelligence collection in order to keep tabs on kidnappers, terrorists, and bandits.

It is recommended that community leaders, traditional rulers, and local government council officials assemble a group of vigilantes, hunters, and young people with the necessary skills to protect their homes and land.

Opeyemi Bamidele, Senate President of Federal University, Oye Ekiti, Ekiti State, made the announcement.

Community policing and multi-level security architecture would be strengthened by the National Assembly’s diligent efforts, according to Bamidele.

At this juncture in our history, it is very necessary to establish such a legislative framework. Protecting lives and property, ensuring democracy stays strong, and advancing our nation are all paramount public interests that our strategy serves to address.

“All state actors and other stakeholders must act urgently and decisively in response to the recent cases of abduction, killings, maiming, population displacement, disruption of socio-economic activities, and attacks in Benue, Ekiti, Kaduna, Katsina, Kebbi, Nasarawa, Ondo, Plateau, Sokoto, and Zamfara.”
