The minority caucus of the House of Representatives has given a three-month ultimatum to the President Tinubu-led administration to curb insecurity in Nigeria.

The lawmakers, after a meeting at the National Assembly on Tuesday, said they would mobilise Nigerians to take “matters into their own hands” if the government fails to act.

Speaking on behalf of the caucus after a closed-door sitting, the Minority Leader, Kingsley Chinda, said the opposition can no longer take the insecurity that is ravaging the country.

“In the same vein, we x-rayed the security situation in our country and we resolved that we can no longer take this situation where Nigeria is today almost tagged as one life, one-minute silence.

“The government is therefore called upon to immediately take steps to ensure that the security situation in the country is normalised, and the caucus has also given a three-month ultimatum for government to normalise the security situation in our country.

“After three months, the caucus will take further steps to sensitise and mobilise Nigerians to perhaps take their security into their hands,” he said.
