Insecurity: Stop terrorists from sacrificing Nigerians – Afenifere tells Buhari


The Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenufere has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to end the killing of Nigerians by terrorists urgently.

Afenifere issued the charge while likening the Federal Government’s handling of insecurity to ceding Nigeria to terrorists.

Reacting to a comment by Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, that a terrorist ‘deceived’ the government into releasing his wife and children without releasing victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train, Afenifere lamented that Nigerians now live in fear and uncertainty.

The body stated this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi.

Ajayi said: “Since the government is expected to possess superior power in virtually everything than any others in a country because the primary responsibilities of the government are the provision of security and welfare for the people and because the present administration has failed to provide either security or welfare for the people of Nigeria in recent times, one may not be wrong to state that President Buhari’s government greatly lost the confidence, trust and hope that were invested in it at inception. It is a pity.

“The manner insecurity issue is being handled is, unfortunately, lending credence to the views of those who are alleging that there could be a hidden agenda to these issues of banditry, kidnapping and terrorism, otherwise, the government would have been more decisive in the way it tackles the monster that is fast eroding the very essence of our being.

“Afenifere urges President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently put a stop to the needless sacrifice of lives of innocent Nigerians by terrorists.”
