The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere has reacted after bandits stormed the Kaduna International Airport on Saturday.
Afenifere in a statement on Sunday by its spokesman, Jare Ajayi condemned the attack on the airport, saying it shows that the insecurity in the country has completely deteriorated.
The organisation stated that the attack on the federal government facility is an indication that some people want Nigeria to be like war-torn Afghanistan.
It will be recalled that troops of the Nigerian military on Saturday clashed with bandit terrorists forcing the closure of the Kaduna International Airport.
Gunmen invaded the airport, disrupting the operation of the airport services.
The incident had caused the death of a staff member whom the Kaduna State government revealed to have been shot by the assailants.
According to Afenifere, the invasion of the Kaduna airport by the terrorists shows that there is hardly anywhere that is safe in the country.
The statement reads: “It is a matter of serious concern that these security infractions happened at a time that the government kept assuring us that it was on top of the situation.
“Some of these attacks by terrorists even occurred in broad daylight, that of Kaduna airport and that of Enugu for instance.
“With terrorists having the audacity to attack a national airport despite all the available security apparatus, it means that hardly is anywhere safe any longer in the country.
“The Federal Government should immediately allow states to set up their police forces, empower the existing security agencies and stop treating terrorists with kid gloves. These must be done immediately so that Nigeria does not go the Afghanistan way.”
