The Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere has likened the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government’s handling of insecurity bedeviling Nigeria to ceding the country to terrorists.

Afenifere urged the president to end the killing of Nigerians by terrorists urgently.

The Yoruba group stated this while reacting to a comment by Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu, that a terrorist ‘deceived’ the government into releasing his wife and children without releasing victims of the Abuja-Kaduna train.

Afenifere in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Jare Ajayi, lamented that Nigerians now live in fear and uncertainty.

He said: “Since the government is expected to possess superior power in virtually everything than any others in a country because the primary responsibilities of the government are the provision of security and welfare for the people and because the present administration has failed to provide either security or welfare for the people of Nigeria in recent times, one may not be wrong to state that President Buhari’s government greatly lost the confidence, trust and hope that were invested in it at inception. It is a pity.

“The manner insecurity issue is being handled is, unfortunately, lending credence to the views of those who are alleging that there could be a hidden agenda to these issues of banditry, kidnapping and terrorism, otherwise, the government would have been more decisive in the way it tackles the monster that is fast eroding the very essence of our being.

“Afenifere urges President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently put a stop to the needless sacrifice of lives of innocent Nigerians by terrorists.”
