Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has said he will not flee from Nigeria amid the rising insecurity in the country.
This is as Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House on The Rock Cathedral advised his congregation to have a Plan B over the insecurity in Nigeria, which includes fleeing the country in any way they can.
On his own part, Yul Edochie said:
“Jakpa is not the answer. Yes, no one wants to lose his life but truth is, we’ll all die someday, all of us. So what’s the point of running? I’m a man sent by God to liberate his people. I will not run from my fatherland. We must get it right.
Former executive secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme ( NHIS), Usman Yusuf, has disclosed that bandits crave genuine peace deep inside.
According to him, he has learned from several meetings with the bandits that they are willing to listen to religious leaders and military action is not a solution to the conflict.
He said: “This is what we find out, in all the five states we went in, they listen to clerics. In Niger state, they gathered in force to a meeting of war commanders, from six states, in the forest, Nobody has drawn that kind of crowd, they listen to the Sheikhs. They are tired and want genuine peace. We go there through clerics. They listen to clerics; All clerics of all faiths.”

“There’s a role for the military in all of these. Without the military, the north-west would have been overrun by Boko Haram, the north-central will be overrun by these bandits, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) will overrun the south-east, there will be warlords all-over south-west,”
“There’s a role for the military but if anybody tells you there’s a military solution to this conflict, he’s either dishonest or he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. There’s no military solution to this problem. “Banditry is a social problem and not a military one. We are increasingly militarising what is essentially a social problem. We are dropping a million-dollar bomb on people we should be providing water for.”
