Afenifere Leaders Charge Buhari to Name Politicians Killing Nigerians.

Published

Ayo-Adebanjo

President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked to name the politicians he claimed were behind the serial killings across the country, particularly in the Northern parts of the country.

Some leaders of Afenifere, a Pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Chief Ayo Adebanjo, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, Mr. Yinka Odumakin and a former Minister of Information and South-south leader, Chief Edwin Clark, disagreed with the president’s position on the sponsors of the killings during an interview section with newsmen.

Buhari had on several occasions claimed that disgruntled and irresponsible politicians were behind the killings, contending that they were doing so to discredit his government.

The president made heavy weather of this claim while on a condolence visit to the victims of the killing of over 100 persons in Jos, capital of Plateau State some weeks ago, a position he restated at the weekend at the close of the Army Week held in Borno State at the weekend.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, earlier in Abuja, the presidency persisted in the profiling of politicians as the sponsors of the killings, saying that the federal government had evidence of its claim and appealed against propagation of falsehood in the polity.

He made the statement hours after the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), alleged that Buhari had singled out opposition politicians for punishment.

Adebanjo and Clark pursued this theme yesterday and asked Buhari to name the killer politicians.

“If he knows that they are politicians, let him name them so that we can stone them,” Adebanjo said, adding, “If Buhari says that at this stage, those who are saying he is confused will be correct.”

The Afenifere leader added, “His government and he are really confused. How can he say politicians are sponsoring herdsmen to kill in Agatu, Enugu, Adamawa, and Taraba; who are these politicians?”

Clark said as a leader saddled with enormous responsibility of protecting the lives of Nigerians, Buhari should rather brace up to the challenge before it is too late.

“We know he has done very well in the North-east on Boko Haram, but it cannot be said that he has done sufficiently well in the aspect of herdsmen killing innocent Nigerians.

“Let it be well known that it is not a fight between herdsmen and farmers, it is the killings of farmers; children who are lying down in their houses sleeping in the middle of the night are being killed. Are they preventing them from entering their farms?

“So, where is the communal clash? There is so much to be said. Mr. President should act before it is too late.”

The Niger Delta leader also said the president is playing double standard over the issue being that he once claimed that the killers are some of the late Libyan leader, Muammar Ghadafi’s mercenaries who infiltrated Nigeria through porous borders.

“How can Mr. President reconcile his earlier statement, which he made in London, United States and Nigeria that the killings are being done by Ghadafi’s men?” he asked.

Fasoranti however agreed with Clark that the position taken by Buhari was not correct.
