He also said that the Police may have lost the fire power  in checkmating the unholy activities of the herdsmen and advised the Federal Government to strengthen security operatives to save the country from descending into anarchy. He said:  “The herdsmen killing is damaging the image of the country. My advice is that the Federal Government and the Police need to checkmate it, but it seems the Police have lost their fire power. The Federal Government prefers to use other bodies which are not bad, but the Police have their jobs to do. In crime fighting, we need money.

How have our youth fared in the professions, the military and the civil service? Do they even hold out any hope for the nation?” Ibori asked.
