The lawmaker spoke in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday while reacting to the attack launched by suspected terrorists on the Nigeria Defence Academy (NDA), Kaduna State, on Tuesday.

Condemning the killing and abduction of military officers, Aribasoye said: “It is time for the government to declare a state of emergency on security because when you look at everything, the economy, health, education and every sector depends on security”.

The lawmaker, who lamented the recent attack on NDA, noted that the institution should be a sacred place and should not be allowed to be desecrated by criminals.

“Personally, I am calling on President Muhammadu Buhari, to as a matter of urgency declare a state of emergency on our security.

“Something drastic must be done immediately to arrest this ugly situation. The issue here is not the issue of All Progressive Congress (APC) or People’s Democratic Party (PDP) because the bandits would not say you are APC or any other political party before attacking you,” he said.
