He claimed that Nigeria has become a failed state under President Muhammadu Buhari due to the country’s security condition. The cleric decried that Nigerians live in perpetual fear and have become hopeless due to the rising attacks and killings, while the Federal Government seems to be incapacitated to tackle the problem.

According to Bishop Ndagoso, the time has come for the government to establish state police in order to protect the vulnerable communities against bandits attacks since those saddled with the responsibility of protecting the lives and property of the citizens have failed to do so.
