Agatu killings: Benue lawmakers tear Buhari, Dambazu apart

Written By Idoma Television on Saturday, March 19, 2016 | 1:56:00 AM

Members of the Benue parliamentary caucus in the House of Representatives have expressed dissatisfaction with the presidency over its continued cold attitude towards the attacks of Fulani herdsmen in the state.

Eleven lawmakers from the state, while briefing newsmen on Thursday, condemned Buhari and Abdulrahman Danbazzau, the minister of interior over their cold attitude towards the ongoing genocide.
“A genocide has been downplayed or ignored until it spirals out of control. After the Agatu mass massacre, a few headlines were recorded, a few sympathetic comments in high places, but concrete moves to stop the killings have not been made.

“We decry the lukewarm attitude of the federal government towards this ‘jihad’ being waged against our people by the herdsmen. We condemn the belated reaction of President Muhammadu Buhari and his minister of interior, Lt. Gen. Abdulrahman Danbazzau (rtd) who broke their unholy silence a week after over 500 people were killed and 10 villages razed in Agatu area of the state,” the lawmaker said in a joint statement issued at the end of the briefing.

They wondered why the federal government had not made public the report of the investigative panel and had not inaugurated it in the first instance.
