BOKO HARAM'S BRUTAL MURDER OF NIGERIAN CHRISTIAN LEADER – FAILED SECURITY ARCHITECTURE OF THE STATE.
The gruesome murder of the Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in Michika Local Government Area of Adamawa State (Rev. Lawan Andimi) by Boko Haram terrorists on Monday January 20th 2020 can no less be described as callous, outrageous and a glaring evidence of failed security architecture of Nigerian state. The insurgents who demanded two million Euros rejected Fifty Million Naira ransom after calling his (Andimi) wife informing her the husband would be beheaded on Saturday but somehow waited till Monday when they executed him. In the same vein, another Pastor was also abducted and killed almost same time with the murdered Christian leader.
The Buhari led Federal Government of Nigeria has persistently declared defeat of Boko haram terrorists in the country even after over 100 billion naira was given to them and Miyetti Allah to halt their insurgent activities, yet the situation has remained unabated. It is worthy of note that Muhammadu Buhari's administration has continued to display soft touch for Boko haram insurgents by the release and reintegration of some of the arrested and detained terrorists in the guise of deradicalization initiative of his government. This is a blunt deceitful strategy designed for continuous perpetration of crimes and killing of Christians in Nigeria.
The Buhari led administration has failed woefully in the protection of lives of property which is the primarily responsibility of any government. The tremendous huge amounts of money given to these insurgents must now be retrieved as it has yielded no positive result. It is evident that the President has no political will to stop the insurgent activities and protect the lives of Nigerians. The security architecture of Nigeria must be reviewed as a matter of national urgency, the Service Chiefs sacked and immediately replaced with men of great integrity.
Therefore, it is high time United Nation and European Union place a ban on President Muhammadu Buhari preventing him from visiting any part of Europe for either medical or political reasons. The number of Nigerians murdered in cold blood under his administration is unimaginable as the nation has never witnessed such level of insecurity and brutal killings in recent time. It is worthy of note that his administration has committed tremendous crimes against humanity far exceeding such of Augusto Pinochet, Idi Amin, Gnassingbe Eyadema etc who were charged to International Criminal Court. It is time for world leaders to intervene and save Christians in Nigeria from total annihilation.
