...Sympathises With Parents Of Killed Greenfield University Students

Following killing of three Students of Greenfield University  (Kaduna) in Northern Nigeria by armed bandits,  a renowned philanthropist and founder of Olumide &Stephanie Aderinokun Foundation, Chief Olumide Aderinokun has called on the federal government to deploy technology in tackling insecurity in the country, saying the challenges of insecurity is now getting more disturbing.

Aderinokun who made the statement in Abeokuta at the weekend while addressing reporters on the killing of the university students said President Buhari-led administration is not doing enough to tackle insecurity in the country.

"It is sad to hear that  armed bandits have killed three of the kidnapped students of Greenfield University.  This is evil, three  of our future leaders have been killed just like that. The Nigerian security issues are getting more disgusting. The government should look for a way to protect lives and properties of its people. The Buhari-led administration is not doing enough at the moment.

"It is high time we adopt 

international security standard by making use of modern technology like information and  communication technology (ICT) in order to fight against insecurity by tracking, detecting, and disseminate information about the armed bandits," the Egba born politician said.

Speaking further, Aderinokun said the fight against insecurity in the country, especially insurgency and kidnapping , needs to be reviewed urgently. He said  Presiden Buhari heavy investment in acquiring weapons is clearly not enough. 

"The acquisition of equipment is necessary but it is evident it is insufficient to tackle the challenges of insecurity in the land. The nature of the challenge  is constantly mutating, and therefore new approaches need to be considered. We have to adopt modern technology in tackling the challenges of insecurity," he posited.

He however sent condolence message to the student's families and the university community. He also prayed for the reposed of their souls.

The remains of the three kidnapped students were found on Friday in Kwanan Bature village, which is near the university.

At least 20 Students and three staffs of the University were abducted on Tuesday by gunmen.
