A previous Aviation Minister and the tribal leader of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Femi Fani-Kayode, has asked the government to announce a highly sensitive situation, following Boko Haram’s executing of rice ranchers in Borno State.
Fani-Kayode made the allure while portraying the way in which Boko Haram slaughtered the ranchers as insidious.
The extremists had throughout the end of the week decapitated some rice ranchers in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
Boko Haram purportedly decapitates 43 ranchers in Borno, yet the UN later guaranteed that 110 were murdered.
However, the former minister in a series of tweets wrote: “110 Nigerians had their throats slit and heads chopped off in a few hours & in a single location?
The enormity of this atrocity is simply astounding and it beggars belief.
Their killers then lay them in lines on the floor with their heads on their stomachs? This is evil”.
We need to declare a state of emergency in some states. If this barbaric atrocity by Boko Haram had been committed in the south, the whole country and international community would have been up in arms. Yet it has happened in Borno and the outrage and disgust that has been expressed is minimal.
“Are we no longer one nation? Are some lives more important than others? Each time anyone, no matter where they come from in our country, is butchered it kills a part of each and everyone of us. 110 heads chopped off and few seem to care? Enough of this madness! Something must give!”
