But in his submission, Enagi contemplated the amendment of laws that would allow governors who are Chief Security officers of their respective States to take charge, insisting that government at the centre has failed woefully.

He added that citizens might be allowed to bear arms through amendment of laws, if the situation persists.

He said: “Am sorry to say this, the government is grossly incompletent in the handling of security challenges in this country.
