In Anioma of Delta State, the Fulani kidnapped and killed a Royal Father earlier in the year and until now, no arrest has been made. In Awgu community in Enugu State, the Fulani herdsmen raped, abducted and massacred dozens of people. When the youths of the village protested about the senseless killings – the Nigeria military arrested seventy-six of them for protesting and locked them up in jail. It took each of them 200,000 Naira each to bail themselves out while the murderers are free and still walking around today meting mayhem upon various communities.
I have not read in any Nigerian newspaper where Fulani herdsmen were arrested or killed by the Nigerian military? I ask again: Are they above the law and untouchable in Nigeria because President Buhari – a Fulani man, who used to be their chairman and Boko haram spokesperson is in power?
I cannot believe that this sort of barbarism is happening in Nigeria in the 21st century when nations are seeking ways to tap into the limitless opportunities for development and progress. Instead, the illiterate and murderous cattle rearers are massacring the future engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters – the future leaders of Nigeria. This is pure insanity.
However, what baffles me most is that President Buhari and his military officers have not said a word about this whole mayhem and barbarism? Is this the change that Buhari/APC government promised Nigerians?
Is Nigeria still a democratic country or is she under full-blown dictatorship. I cannot believe that in the 21st century, Nigeria – the so-called giant of Africa is be subjected to this kind of tyranny and abuse. Where are the wise and courageous citizens of Nigeria? How can we permit this foolishness to continue? When will we stand up now and condemn this brazen acts of barbarism and incivility in the land? I miss Mrs. Dora Akunyili. It is time for our mothers, women, youths, and even children to rise-up and rebel against this barbarism, lawlessness, tyranny, and despotism – if not Nigeria risks doom and disintegration.
Instead of the Nigerian military forces – Army, Police and DSS to clamp down on jihadist Boko harm and murderous Fulani herdsmen – who are carrying out mayhem and heinous crime against humanity in Nigeria and in effect hindering development and progress and foreign investment into Nigeria – they are busy chasing, arresting and killing unarmed pro-Biafra protesters and sympathizers. What the hell is going on Nigeria? What sort of country has Nigeria become just barely one-year Buhari took office?
