Killing: Adamawa com­mu­nity pe­ti­tions Jonathan, N/As­sem­bly

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

The Army is not mad. He may have been one of the Boko Haram hench­men.

Mota Gur maduka_charles@ya­hoo.co.uk ************************** What the com­mu­nity is say­ing in essence is that ‘we would rather have our broth­ers and sis­ters in Boko Haram than the Nigeria se­cu­rity of­fi­cials com­ing to mess things up for us.’ Not a sin­gle per­son, in­clud­ing, the gov­er­nors, tra­di­tional rulers and or­di­nary cit­i­zens have con­demned the killers in their midst, that made the pres­ence of the se­cu­rity agencies nec­es­sary. Rather, people in these three states fo­cus their at­tacks and blames on the Nigeria se­cu­rity agencies, for­get­ting that they are the only com­mu­ni­ties in the na­tion that ac­com­mo­date these ji­hadists and ac­cept their mayhem on civ­i­lized and in­no­cent people. Did Nige­rian govern­ment send the Boko Haram to these com­mu­ni­ties or is it mem­bers of these com­mu­ni­ties that fi­nance and sup­port their fel­low cit­i­zens to wage war of at­tri­tion on the rest of us in the name of Al­lah? We need hon­est an­swers, please.

The Mubi people must choose which side they be­long to. Ter­ror­ists lo­cate where they are wel­comed and pro­tected. No­body from the gov­er­nors, leg­is­la­tors, and cit­i­zens of the three states have con­demned the ac­tions of these Boko Harams for their atroc­i­ties in their com­mu­ni­ties; they rather love to blame Nigeria se­cu­rity as the course of their woes. To prove they are not the cause of the prob­lem, they should make life dif­fi­cult for their broth­ers and sis­ters in Boko Haram.
