Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ade­lanwa Bamg­boye

Leading lawyer and Se­nior Ad­vo­cate of Nigeria, Mrs. Funke Adekoya (SAN) has urged the Federal Govern­ment to ur­gently over­haul the na­tion’s se­cu­rity ar­chi­tec­ture to tackle grow­ing in­sur­gency and se­cure lives and property.

Speak­ing yes­ter­day, Adekoya com­mis­er­ated with the fam­i­lies of the vic­tims of the Nyanya bomb­ing, de­scrib­ing the ab­duc­tion of over 100 stu­dents of Govern­ment Girls Sec­ondary School in Maiduguri as “scary.”

Adekoya who is for­mer Nigeria bar As­so­ci­a­tion 1st Vice Pres­i­dent com­mended the se­cu­rity agencies for res­cu­ing some the girls, urg­ing them to “spare no ef­fort” in en­sur­ing that all the stu­dents are re­united with their loved ones.

“This is one of the worst night­mares a par­ent can face in his or her life­time. The trauma must be in­de­scrib­able. That is why all hands must be on deck to en­sure that ev­ery sin­gle girl af­fected by this ab­duc­tion is speed­ily re­united with her fam­ily.”

Adekoya urged the se­cu­rity agencies to com­pletely over­haul their se­cu­rity ma­chin­ery to en­sure that schools es­pe­cially in the North East of the coun­try are given ad­e­quate pro­tec­tion.
