Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has drawn parallels between the worsening state of insecurity in Nigeria and  the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine due to Russia’s invasion.

“The horrific scenes in #Ukraine of the dead and destruction are a stark reminder of the inhumanity that we see here at home. This evil here and around the world must end, and those responsible must be held accountable,” Mr Atiku tweeted on Wednesday.

Mr Atiku’s comments come as Nigeria’s security forces continue to suffer losses at the hands of bandits rampaging across the country.
