House of Reps hopeful calls on Nigerians to defend selves against Fulani herdsmen


A House of Representatives aspirant for the Orumba North/South Federal Constituency of Anambra State, Captain Casmir Nwafor (rtd.) has called on Nigerians to to defend themselves against the marauding Fulani herdsmen across the federation.

Nwafor who made this call in a statement he issued in Oko yesterday advised Nigerians to organize themselves in in their various localities to form security outfits whose major work would hinge on intelligence gathering  as well as acquire legal weapons, conduct training of the people in weapon handling, self defence and ambush attack.

He noted that this was the time for every state governors to equip their local vigilante, motivate them very well and send them on short military and security courses abroad saying that security of Nigerians was now in their hands.

Nwafor who is also a legal luminary added that the killings in Nigeria would not stop until the National Assembly was courageous enough to make a law prohibiting open grazing of cattle all over Nigeria.

According to him, “The security agencies have failed in their responsibility to secure the lives and property of Nigerians. This is what you get when you have a tribal President claiming to be leading a country of different colours. How on Earth can a President appoint virtually all heads of security agencies in a county from one part of the country as well as from one particular religion when the country is a secular state?

“You have an IG of Police that doesn’t even understand his duties. You have a Minister of Defence that supports the killers. You have Service Chiefs that seem to have run out of ideas and initiatives. You have a President that is not sincere in stopping the killings. You have Presidential aides that tell you to vacate your father’s compound for criminals. How can a government that claimed to have spent $1b on security turn back to tell its citizens that they should rather pray for their security? Why didn’t we pray against IPOB and Niger Delta Militants? Where is the integrity people claim that they have?

“Anyone expecting any solution to the incessant killings in Nigeria from President Buhari regime is a FOOL and unserious. This government is complicit in the killings going on in Nigeria.

“Organize yourselves in your area into security outfits mainly of intelligence gathering. Acquire legal weapons; conduct training of your people in weapon handling, self defence and ambush attack. This is time for every state governor to equip its local vigilante, motivate them very well and send them on short military and security courses abroad. Your security is now in your hands, Nigerians. Rely on the security agencies at your own peril. A word is enough for the Wise”.
