Is the Inspector General of police policing for all Nigerians or for murderous Fulani nomads?
By Greg Obuoha
Is the IG of Police policing for the Fulani as a segment of the Country or the entire nation? Orders coming from those that superintendent over the security architecture of Nigeria sometimes are baffling and sectional. If it is true that the IG of police ordered for the arrest of Sunday for issuing seven days quit ultimatum to rampaging killer herdsmen in Yoruba land then something is fundamentally wrong with the security of Nigeria. It implies that the lives of some people in Nigeria are more valuable than that of others. It means that a section of Nigeria is sacred while others are not only inferior but outright counterfeit.
Where was the security conscious IGP when a Muslim group in Sokoto issued death threat and quit notice to the revered Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Rev Hassan Kuka?For weeks Malami threatened to crucify kuka and that nothing will happen . He boasted that neither the Federal government nor Sultan can stop them when they embark on the crucifixion of the Catholic Bishop.
Where was IGP when a section of Arewa youths issued quit notice to Igbos to leave Northern Nigeria ,failure which they will be massacred? Am aware that nobody was arrested or warned to desist from making such inflammatory remarks.
There have been deafening and chilling cries amongst different groups in the country over perennial killings, burning and destruction of rural communities, looting and plundering, raping, armed robbery, banditry, kidnapping and occupation of indigenous communities across Nigeria by Fulani herdsmen but I doubt if the IGP has done anything tangible to stop these murderous escapedes of these heavily armed herdsmen who have been emboldened to intensify this despicable trend of madness and butchering.
So why is the IGP not bothered about the remote causes of what brought about the quit notice to the murderous herdsmen? Why is the IGP so concerned with the quit notice issued by people struggling to protect themselves from murderous nomads whom the government has not confronted head-on to stop needless bloodletting and destructions.And if I may ask :Does the IGP want the victims of those killings and destructions to be romancing their killers in their own lands for peace that doesn’t exist to reign? Why has the IGP not fished out these criminal elements and prosecute them ? Having not done anything serious to stop the spat of massacring across Nigeria by Fulani herdsmen ,why is IGP stopping people from protecting themselves?
The Sunday in question is doing community service for his people. He is a volunteer superintending the local vigilanting work for his people. If Community policing as initiated by the Federal government is genuine, then why the clamp down on Sunday?
Why is there no clamp down on Fulani killers?
Why is there no clamp down on those threatening to kill Bishop Kuka through crucifixion in this modern time?
IGP goofed big time and should be called to order before he causes civil war in Nigeria!
