I think this may be what Navy Commodore Olawumi is making reference to.
I have been 🤔 thinking and trying to plot the graph after watching the Interview on channels.

Why are this bandits not named terrorists yet despite their modus operandis?,
Late General Sanni Abacha said: If terrorism and insecurity last more than 24hrs in a country, the hands of the government is in it...could this adding flesh to why we are where we are?

Am bothered why we are all overwhelmed with this growing insecurity...

Colleagues, this post is for analysis sake..to guide our program and team especially in stakeholders engagements and Risk management plans..

Good morning. 👍
