NA SO! Biafra and Oduduwa agitation spreads like wildfire as Top Nigerian Army Colonel blames Buhari govt over breakaway calls

Kanu, Igboho, Buhari

Colonel Abubakar Umar (rtd), a former Kaduna State Military Administrator, has criticized President Muhammadu Buhari's government for separatist agitations that endanger the country's unity.

Umar stated that the present administration under Buhari has failed to unite Nigeria in a statement released on Wednesday headlined, "Nigeria; A Nation Challenged."

He also chastised the federal government for paying undue attention to separatist threats in contrast to the more serious threats posed by kidnappers, bandits, and insurgents in the country's northern regions, adding that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, was arrested for no reason.

Umar said: “It’s quite strange and disturbing the Federal Government is according undue attention to the threats of separatist movements in contrast to the more daunting ones posed by bandits, kidnappers and insurgents in the North West, some parts of North Central and North East.

“Activities of those criminals have resulted in the evacuation of over 20 per cent of the villages in North West and North East. Hundreds are being murdered and maimed every week. Many more are kidnapped for ransom.

“Millions have been rendered internally displaced, facing disease and starvation. Over one thousand school children were abducted in the past eight months, with over 300 still in the hands of the bandits and kidnappers demanding humongous ransom payments.

“Rape of women and young girls has become a daily occurrence. Most economic activities, particularly farming, which is the mainstay of the people in these areas, are now all but impossible.

“Government’s earlier claim of having technically defeated the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East has turned out to be empty propaganda. Contrary to this claim, the enemy has morphed into a more determined and deadly force, threatening to overrun the whole of the North East.

“For the average Northerner living in these zones, who is barely aware of the activities of separatists, banditry, kidnappings and insurgency are of greater threat and concern to him. The arrest of Nnamdi Kanu is of no serious consequence since it does nothing to ameliorate his harsh and brutal condition.”

Umar’s comment is coming at a time the federal government clamped down on leaders of some agitators in Nigeria.

Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of IPOB, and  Sunday Igboho who champions the Yoruba nation's movement has been ceaselessly calling for Nigeria's breakup for every indigenous people to go their separate ways.

Recall, Kanu is presently in detention in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS, while his trial continues and also the Ibadan residence of Yoruba activist, Sunday Adeyemo, aka Sunday Igboho, was invaded by the DSS.
