Soldiers kill 32 in herders’ vil­lages

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

Grad­u­ally the words of our po­lit­i­cal pun­dits are com­ing to light. Con­fu­sion, chaos, cri­sis and cor­rup­tion are what are be­ing de­ployed to achieve pres­i­den­tial sec­ond term am­bi­tion, come 2015. The op­po­si­tion should note and en­gage in se­ri­ous cam­paign for peace in the coun­try. Watch it! Borno, Yobe, Adamawa and now Nasarawa; they are all op­po­si­tion states. Soon Nasarawa will also join the emer­gency rule band­wagon. What they want is the Fulbe na­tion to re­tal­i­ate, so that they will mas­sacre a large num­ber of them and also de­clare state of emer­gency in their states. Con­sti­tu­tional lawyers will tell you that, elec­tions can­not hold un­der emer­gency rules there­fore GEJ would seek term elon­ga­tion through the Se­nate. Re­mem­ber he came to power through the same Se­nate’s ‘rule of ne­ces­sity’. May Al­lah for­give all those killed in this and other po­lit­i­cal­lyin­sti­gated killings. Miyetti Al­lah should seek le­gal re­dress of this geno­cide and it must be blown to in­ter­na­tional aware­ness. They should please call their mem­bers to deco­rum and re­straint, not to re­tal­i­ate against any in­no­cent life.

haro­is­mail@ya­ *********************** Those who mas­sa­cred the in­no­cent and harm­less Fu­lani herds­men are ei­ther sent on ethno-re­li­gious sen­ti­ment or are pure Boko Haram boys in mil­i­tary out­fit. I won­der how se­cu­rity op­er­a­tives will in­vade a state/lo­cal govt. with­out prior no­tice to the chief se­cu­rity of­fi­cer of the area, this is an­ar­chy.

shehi76@ya­ *********************** We called it one Nigeria but, some groups in Nigeria are free to move freely every­where they like to go and live and some groups are de­nied of this free­dom of move­ment. Any­where they go, they are ei­ther mo­lested or killed with author­ity.


Tahir Yakubu *********************** Haba, Miyetti-Al­lah and their sup­port­ers! When their kins­men were busy killing in­no­cent people in south­ern Kaduna vil­lages, Plateau, Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba states, they were deny­ing it. Now that AK-47 has been used on them, they are cry­ing foul.


mo­hhamed14@ya­ *********************** This pen­chant of ruth­less killing of civil­ians in the name of se­cu­rity and the con­se­quent de­nials by the DHQ is be­com­ing a rou­tine. The mil­i­tary com­mand should re­dress this; and if they fail the politi­cians have a duty to stop this im­punity by the mil­i­tary. Enough is enough; this im­punity must stop.

Jan Hazo *********************** The Fu­lani have now be­come en­dan­gered species ready to be cleansed out of envy of their wealth, with mil­i­tary con­nivance. Any in­sti­tu­tion that is plan­ning the geno­cide will fail as God is not sleep­ing. Miyet­tiAl­lah, this is the time to act and re­port the case to The Hague for ac­tion against the Nige­rian mil­i­tary as their ex­cesses are be­com­ing un­bear­able. Gover­nor Suswan has al­ready de­clared that the per­pe­tra­tors of the mayhem in Benue are not the Fu­lani they know. Now, why is the mil­i­tary af­ter the Fu­lani? The mil­i­tary should con­front the real per­pe­tra­tors?
