A youth organisation, the Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, on Thursday warned that any “further extension of the COVID-19 lockdown could lead to the kidnap of government officials in coastal areas.
BNYL also warned that the lockdown extension may result in resistance against security agencies at state borders because of boredom among the people. Also creating massive insecurity against the law abiding citizen of the Nigeria populace.
“People are already tired of staying idle and are no longer afraid of Coronavirus.” The group said
More importantly is to note that hunger is worst than the COVID-19 pandemic itself.
The group’s Deputy National Leader, Ebuta Takon Akor gave the warning while reacting to the decision of the Nigeria Governors Forum to extend lockdown for another 14 days.
Recall that the forum had said the 14 days interstate lockdown will help tackle the spread of COVID-19.
