In 3 Years, President Buhari Hasn’t Apprehended Even One Farmer/Herdsman Killer
The TakeItBack Movement has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration to tell Nigerians what specific steps they have taken to bring to justice, those responsible for the casualties in farmers-herdsmen conflicts.
A statement released by Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi, Director, PR, Media and Communications, TakeitBack Movement/Sowore2019, wondered why the President had made no single arrest despite acknowledging that some politicans were behind the killings.
“After the Plateau killings a few weeks ago, President Buhari claimed that the crisis was sponsored by ‘powerful politicians’. As the Chief Security Officer and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian nation, we believe that the President was speaking from a position of knowledge,” the group observed.
“It is curious that since making that statement, no action has been taken to bring the sponsors of the crisis, whom the President claims to know, to justice.”
It reminded Buhari of how “inaction and ineffectiveness” cost former President Goodluck Jonathan the 2015 election, and warned that a similar fate awaits him.
