Nigeria is currently estimated to have a population of 194,947,766. This is based on the latest United Nations estimates. It is therefore unfortunate that just about 10% of this population is threatening to chase the rest of us out of our country.
This 10% is a reference to two deadly terrorist organisations. They are the Boko Haram terrorists and the Fulani herdsmen.
Nigeria has become like an old woman- perhaps 58 and above- who refuses to sit properly, opening her legs wide for young men to view freely. Nigeria is a country where anyone can come in without visa, passport or residence permits. Our borders are so porous. Any need to wonder then, why our security situation is so outrageous?
The Fulani Herdsmen and Boko Haram has waged war on Nigerians. Ethnicity, regional differences and religion have been allowed to deal us a massive blow.
Let’s reflect on these herdsmen. They are supposed to be simple nomadic cattle rearers. However, they now go about with sophisticated weaponry. They destroy people’s farms and kill those who protest. They wipe out entire villages, raping women randomly. Yet, our ‘dear’ President Buhari has refused to declare them a terrorist group. Why won’t they be so licentious?
HAVE YOU SEEN?
For Boko Haram, their activities started in 2002, though they became deadly much later. They moved their headquarters to the notorious Sambisa Forest in 2015, the same year they were ranked as the deadliest terrorist group in the world. ‘Boko Haram’ is usually translated to mean ‘Western education is forbidden.’ Now, the question is, how did they get use of their sophisticated weaponry? Is it not through the same western influence they claim to be against?
It is obvious that there is complicity within the Nigerian security operatives. There are definitely informants leaking information to the herdsmen and ‘haramists.’ When will this stop?
When will Mr. President stop saying that herdsmen are not Nigerians? Will his regime sit and do nothing until we are all wiped out?
How is it that a place respected fellow like Festus Keyamo is still singing the praises of Buhari, despite all these? And Rotimi Amaechi, how will he face the people of Rivers State after everything?
Is Buhari too big to be impeached? Who will withstand this monster in 2019? Do you think this endless bloodshed might not lead to a civil war? How long will Nigerians remain dormant in the face of Buhari’s heartlessness?
