Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), on Friday, referred to as for the sack of all Nigeria’s service chiefs and the National Security Adviser as American and British nationals flee Abuja over imminent assaults by terrorists.
HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, in a press launch, talked about the service chiefs have confirmed themselves to be ineffective, incompetent merely as it is suspected that they are merely reeling out bogus data of feat whatever the continued offensive launched by insurgents.
The group moreover faulted the shortcoming of the service chiefs and their corporations to re-arrest fighters of the Boko Haram and Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) sects who escaped from the Kuje jail in July all through an unprecedented jailbreak.
Following its uncover of a doable terror assault, the United States Mission and the British High Commission suspended consular suppliers in Abuja and commenced the evacuation of their citizens from Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory.
However, the Federal Government by way of the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has insisted that there have been no threats of terrorist assaults in Abuja.
The Federal Government has maintained that the President Buhari authorities gained’t be stampeded.
Continuing, Onwubiko talked about, “To lend credence to the phobia alerts by the US and the UK, a joint operation launched by the Department of State Services, the National Intelligence Agency, the police and some American troopers this week reportedly arrested 5 ISWAP commanders and 30 fighters in part 3, Trademore Estate in Abuja.
“The detained fighters reportedly masqueraded as artisans, cart pushers and security guards in Abuja and they are all from a particular tribe known to have terrorist affiliation!”
Onwubiko further highlighted that heightened stress throughout the nation’s capital has made the favored Jabi Lake Mall shut its doorways to clients and visitors however the Federal Government is grandstanding emptily and releasing Boko Haram members in detention all throughout the title of deradicalization.
“Shockingly, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor simply currently talked about 101 convicted terrorists and folks awaiting trial have been moved from prisons to a deradicalisation camp for reintegration into society. Should the federal authorities even have contemplated that? Shouldn’t terrorists be summarily executed after conviction?
“Where are the Boko Haram terrorists that escaped from Kuje prison in July when it was attacked and hundreds of inmates freed? Where are all the thousands of terrorists that escaped from the over 10 jailbreaks in Nigeria in the last two years?” he requested.
Onwubiko added, “HURIWA requires an entire investigation by the National Assembly on all the claims by the military heads of successes in opposition to terrorists as a results of if terrorists can characterize such an infinite menace to Abuja and even threaten to take over Abuja imminently, this displays that there is one thing fishy with the data the military dishes out to Nigerians claiming successes in opposition to insurgents. These tales is probably going to be empty propaganda as a results of these claims aren’t backed up with real photographic proof!
“Also, why is the Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola still on seat? Why are the non-performing service chiefs being rewarded with further stay by the government when the terrorists are still able to threaten Nigeria and the world is running away from Abuja? Why is this government made up of deceivers and liars? Pathetic! Abuja must not fall like Kabul in Afghanistan!”
