The National Council of Tiv Youths has insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari is playing a script by refusing to arrest the leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, MACBAN.
The youths said Buhari’s failure to arrest MACBAN’s leadership was an indication that something was fundamentally wrong with the current Federal Government.
President of NCTY, Dr John Akperashi, who spoke while addressing newsmen over the weekend, also described the Federal Government committee led by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo to look into the farmers, herdsmen crisis as a “scam.”
Akperashi claimed that the committee had been designed “to dance on the tombs of the slaughtered Nigerians for no sin of theirs other than not belonging to a specific ethnic nationality.”
He said, “We have sounded it over and over again and still reiterate our earlier stand that President Muhammadu Buhari is not sincere in his approach to resolving this crisis, which many are seeing as being sponsored, financed and coordinated to achieve a written script.
“Otherwise, the only pragmatic and purposeful approach is to, first of all, arrest the leadership of the Miyetti Allah, who have always boasted and publicly claimed responsibility for the heinous crimes against the innocent Nigerians. It is today shocking that since these calls, no single interrogation has been instituted against this sect! Not even an arrest.
“It proves clearly something is fundamentally wrong. Then, you are requesting negotiation. With who? The Osinbajo committee is a scam, a shame and insult to Nigerians. Their mission is a ceremony designed to dance on the tombs of the slaughtered Nigerians for no sin of theirs other than not belonging to a specific ethnic nationality.
“We know for sure those killing us. We equally know as a matter of fact those protecting our killers through their actions; but at the appropriate time, this orgy shall be history in our lives.”
