Nigerians have again expressed anger and frustration over the helplessness of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigerian government to stop the abductions and killings in the North-East by the Boko Haram terrorists and their Islamic State West African Province accomplices.
The ISWAP faction of Boko Haram on Wednesday released another chilling gruesome video in which its fighters executed five residents of Adamawa State, believed to be Christians.
The victims were abducted on Christmas Eve in the Garkida area of Adamawa and were subsequently murdered and filmed by the terrorists.
A number of Nigerians lamented that instead of the armed forces and the Presidency to channel their energies on the rising insecurity, the military has been busy hunting the Nnamdi Kanu’s recently launched Eastern Security Network, while the cronies of the Presidency have been attacking Bishop Mathew Kukah for raising concerns over the insecurity situation in the country.
For instance, on Twitter, Modele Yanju using (@shrewdasaid), as their handle, said, “Now, where are the critics of Bishop Kukah? Everyone is hibernating, not saying a word to oppose these killers, busy having nightmares over Eastern Security Network proposals. These killers have become a major cash cow for God-knows-who. Judgment time is nearer than they think.”
Similarly, Smithken (@Smithke12630696) said, “Tell me why I should continue to go to church when those who gave us Christianity are keeping quiet in the face of these religious cleansing.”
Augustine Okoloise (@AustinOkoloise) said, “If Christians do this to Muslims, how would they feel? I know how they reacted to Trump antagonistic behaviours, our Christian religious leaders apart from Apostle Suleiman and Bishop Oyedepo, I really don’t know the names to call them, CAN is the most useless religion body.”
David Eboh (@DavidEboh5) said, “May their souls RIP. The killers and those killed are under the same embrace of death. The only difference is the time. Therefore, it’s not a victory for them. Life is a brief candle, more like a walking shadow, a mere stage where each plays a role judged for good or evil.”
Kadura (@AUyaelumuo) said, “I thought Buhari was supposed to pay them ransom as he did for Kantara boys or are these ones not Nigerians?”
