The spate of kidnapping and attacks by bandits and unknown gunmen in Nigeria is on the increase.
Different individuals, groups, and stakeholders have expressed displeasure on the outcome of these menances.
On Saturday, women in their numbers took to the street in Ondo state to protest against spate of kidnapping and attacks by bandits.
The protests were said to have been triggered by the recent kidnap of teachers by some bandits in Auga Akoko, the killing of a police officer by unknown gunmen at Oka Akoko last week, and the attack on 17 travellers on Ifira Akoko-Isua Akoko road by armed robbers among others.
The peaceful protest was carried out in four Local Government Arwas of the state, Oka Akoko, Akungba Akoko and some other Akoko towns.
Some of the protesters, who were holding brooms in their hands, were half-naked, chanting various solidarity songs along the streets.
They called on the security agents and the state government to come to the rescue of the area from the attack of the bandits.
