The Companion, a group of Muslim businessmen and professionals in Nigeria and disapora, has urged the current administration to immediately proclaim a state of emergency in the security sector to stop the recent spike in killings around the nation.

The Companion issued the call following the horrific murder of no less than thirty worshipers at St. Francis Catholic Church, Owo in Ondo State on Sunday, June 5. The release was signed by the organization’s Ameer Engr. Kamil Olalekan and General Secretary Mallam Ibrahim Abduquadri.

The Companion said that the most recent massacre was one too many and questioned why Nigeria’s Military, which receives a sizable annual budget for security, continues to look impotent despite the country’s dismal trend.

The Companion asks for a fundamental shift in how security organizations combat general insecurity, which has continuously had a negative impact on the country’s economy and the welfare of its people.

The organization claimed that the fact that the populace consistently experiences palpable dread as a result of constant attacks necessitates a change in strategy for battling insecurity.

The Companion warns of the repercussions of allowing the security situation to worsen, as it could push people to engage in savage self-defense and extrajudicial killings, among other things.

Owo massacre: The Companion tells Federal Government to declare state of emergency on security

The Companion expresses its condolences to the victims’ families, the Nigerian Catholic Church, the residents of Owo, and the administration of Ondo State on the senseless murders that took place in the sleepy town.

In this terrible time, the group added, “Our hearts go out to the victims’ families, the church, the people of Owo, and the Ondo State government.”

The Islamic movement supports enhancing Western Nigeria Security.

To prevent bandits from entering the South West geographical zone, which up until now had enjoyed relative peace and calm among other zones in the nation, the Islamic organization urges reinforcement of the Western Nigeria Security Network, or Amotekun.
