Order Military To Treat Fulani Herdsmen As Terrorists, HURIWA Tells Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari

By Adedayo Akinwale‎

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has bemoaned the continued silence of President Muhammadu Buhari over the wanton killings by Fulani herdsmen terrorising farming communities across Nigeria.
It has therefore called on him to give clear directives to armed security operatives to treat the marauding Fulani herdsmen as terrorists.

The National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Emmanuel‎ Onwubiko, disclosed this in a statement of sued on Sunday in Abuja.

According to him, “HURIWA is demanding the removal of the Director General of Department of State Services (DSS) Alhaji Daura for turning that national security institution to an exclusive protection and propaganda wing of the armed Fulani herdsmen responsible for mass killings across the country.”

‎He added: “The conspiratorial silence of the DSS concerning the genocide by armed Fulani herdsmen in Agatu community of Benue State and many others including Taraba, Plateau, Delta, Enugu, Anambra and Edo States and the rapidity of the unscientific and provocative statement made by the Department of State Services to claim that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra  (IPOB) slaughtered the 5 kidnapped Fulani herdsmen even without any forensic evidence has clearly depicted the current hierarchy of DSS as sectional and myopic and therefore should be dismissed for lacking professionalism and for attempting to ignite Ethnic genocide against Igbo residing in Northern Nigeria.”
The rights group also demanded that the  President addresses the nation in a national broadcast to comprehensively disclose workable measures to reform the independent National Electoral Commission  (INECto make it truly independent and impartial.

    If anyone thinks this president will ever do anything against his immediate constituency,Fulani people, the person should rethink. This man has never hidden his tribalistic and divisive nature as well as his religious extremism. We’re all here when he said an attack on the murderous Boko Haram was an attack on the North. Funny enough, the same group he supported and advocated for is his biggest security challenge today. It’s only God that can call him to order! The man who toppled his military junta ,once said, in an interview with Newswatch,that Buhari is one man who behaves as having “absolute knowledge” of everything and hardly takes advice.
