Massacre in Benue State!!!
What is the Value of Human Life?
Fulani herdsmen killed at least 19 people including 2 catholic priests in Gwer local government in Benue state. What are security agencies doing to protect the people of Benue state? Injustice somewhere is injustice everywhere? The government needs to protect its citizens. Can someone tell me the value of Human life in Nigeria? Do we have intelligence agencies in Nigeria that work? Does the Presidency and his security chiefs enable operatives do their jobs to gather intelligence to protect our people? I was at the toastmasters club as a guest and met a former intelligence operative who was such an eloquent speaker. He is intelligent and speaks 5 languages. This means that we have agents that make us proud but what are we doing to enable them do their jobs to protect us?

What is the archdiocese doing to speak out against this barbaric attack? Can Rome make a statement to the Nigerian government on the displeasure of the Massacre in Benue State? How are the Catholics around the country speaking out against these attacks. The priests featured on television sounded motionless regarding his colleague’s death. If the religious institutions are showing apathy, is there hope for any of us?
Hold them Accountable
WE the people are quiet and are showing apathy. Some of us buy NGN200 data and berate the government agencies with our frustrations. Is that all we can do to hold these vampires accountable? Let us speak to our representatives in power in our various constituencies to inform them of our displeasure. Dino Melaye mentioned in parliament, that the police are protecting the elite and leaving the masses behind to fend for themselves. I guess that is why he is wanted by the police.
The president releases a statement mentioning that “the acts are barbaric and satanic”. He also mentions that the government will do everything they can to bring the perpetrators to book. Why is our government never proactive? Why are we so reactive? So many people are dying. One day, citizens will have enough of these atrocities.
