  1. Weak Judicial System

The Weak Judicial System is one of the major causes of insecurity in Nigeria. People feel insecure when criminals and terrorists go free. Many evil-minded people think that money can buy freedom in the country, and unfortunately, the corrupt system proves this line of thought. Rich or wealthy people can buy their freedom in the country while the poor cannot and the masses do not feel secure about.

Solution

The judicial system in the country should be changed. There may be only one answer to that which is transparency.  The Federal Government should make sure a judge’s decision and power is transparent.

  1. “Open” borders.

The country’s borders are not well-guarded. Insurgents from other countries can easily penetrate the country. In the North East, the situation is particularly perilous. The federal government will not be able to secure the borders with enough troops. Terrorism in the country is primarily caused by porous coastal borders.

Solution

The Federal Government should increase the number of troops that guard borders. It should also train people to protect their regions from insurgents.

  1. A high Influx of Arms

This is a complex problem. Here, those called smugglers use porous coastal borders of the country to sell arms.  They provide pistols, shotguns, rifles, assault rifles, grenades, and explosives used against the people and military forces.

Solution

The Federal Government may need to ask help from residents of affected areas to patrol the borders together.

  1. Narcotics

Narcotic trafficking is one of the causes of insecurity in Nigeria. Criminal groups are involved in the smuggling of illegal substances to Europe, Asia, South Africa, and North America. Nigerian gangs are one of the largest distributors of opium in the world. Citizens should fight this criminal trafficking, which is not affecting just the country but the entire world.

  1. Slavery

This is a condition in which one human being was owned by another. For instance, women in the country can be tricked into migrating to other regions in the country. They hope to find good jobs, but, instead of promised jobs, they are forced to sell their bodies for money. Some of them are even sold to foreign brothels.  The situation with human trafficking and forced labour in the country is horrible. Citizens should fight these crimes.

Solution

Cases of human trafficking or slavery should be reported. The Federal Government, individual need not be indifferent to this problem. People are born free and must live free.

For the last few years, citizens have been victims of robberies, which sometimes happen in daylight.

Organized criminal gangs take over the streets of the country. People do not feel safe when walking on the roads. Corrupt government officials cannot provide help to Nigerians to fight with these criminals.

Solution

The Federal Government should pay attention to this problem by providing Arm forces on the roads and streets.

  1. Terrorist threat

Terrorism in the country is not a new problem. Boko Haram and Niger Delta Avengers are two prominent terrorist organizations that cause the most damage to the country.

Solution

The Federal Government keeps fighting with terrorists. Nigerian soldiers die every day for their country. Now, it is a matter of time before the terrorists will be eliminated.

Conclusion
