Civil rights advocacy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has blamed President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for the continuous invasions of schools and Churches by armed bandits, Islamists and terrorists.
It said the failure of the President to dismiss the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Sheikh Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, from office even after he confessed expressing sympathy and support for global jihadist movements of AlQaeda and Taliban has further emboldened the terrorists to up their game, News Express reports.
The rights group said these terrorists have now got the signal that they can operate and kill as much as they want and nothing will happen to them because those wielding governmental powers are sympathizers of terrorism.
HURIWA recalled that for the umpteenth time, terrorists attacked Christian worshippers at a church in Manini Tasha village, Kuriga Ward in Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State, on Sunday April 25 morning just as one person, Zakariah Dogo Yaro, identified as a medical doctor, was killed while an unspecified number of worshippers were abducted by the attackers.
HURIWA, which condemned the attack as well as many others that have happened just within last week in Kaduna State as primitive, atrocious, unwarranted and man’s inhumanity to man, however asked Nigerians to approach the United States President and Congress, and the Prime Minister of Canada to mount pressure on these global leaders to classify the administration of President Buhari as a sympathizer of AlQaeda and Taliban.
HURIWA said Nigerians should demand from world leaders that President Buhari’s administration be classified as a government that tolerates the senseless killings of her citizens by terrorists, Islamists, Fulani herdsmen so specific sanctions are imposed on him and members of his cabinet and the leadership of the 9th session of the National Assembly headed by Ahmed Lawan.
“We believe that President Buhari does not just have the political will to stop these killings but he is deeply suspected to be sympathetic to their activities given that he has rubbished the clamour for the sack of his Minister who espoused dangerous pro-Taliban and pro-AlQaeda sentiments and ideological leanings.
“Only global leaders can help Nigerians stop the imminent war in Nigeria because the government does not care a hoot,” HURIWA noted.
