Many groups and prominent individuals in the country say it is time to rejig Nigeria’s security architecture.
One of the groups have vowed to drag the President to the International Criminal Court at the Hague over insecurity in the country. The President is facing growing pressure to sack his security chiefs over indiscriminate killings across the country.
