According to him, the rising spate of insecurity in the country is unfortunate, The Cable reports.
“Not only governors being attacked, anybody who is attacked in Nigeria, one should be worried because life is life. Certainly, we’re worried because a governor is supposed to have some security with him, let alone of an ordinary man who has no security.
