It is most disappointing to state the biasness and the unprofessional stance of the mainstream global media outlets in the mold of CNN, BBC, France 24, Al-Jazeera and many others that have obviously been compromised by the evil regime of the Nigerian federation controlled by the Fulani Islamic fundamentalists in Aso Rock. These frontline global media outlets have steadily maintained outright blackout on the activities of Fulani killer herdsmen amongst other Islamic terrorists in Nigeria. It is important to bring this callous development of desperate jihadists to the notice of relevant world leaders. The Nigerian government it should be noted has remained strongly complicit in this demonic enterprise that is being visited on the helpless citizens of country. The worst of it all is that the government has never deemed it fit to arrest or prosecutes any of these Fulani “death messengers” right from the onset. But instead, the army, police and other security agencies have been used to shield them even at the scene of their heinous acts.
Presently, the gravely compromised Nigerian media has mortgaged their professional ethics for the interests of the Fulani cabals at the corridors of power that are managing these terrorists for the Nigerian government. The Nigerian media has shamelessly resorted to calling these murderous Islamists terrorists, “bandits”, “kidnappers” and “criminals” instead of their real names, just for the Nigerian evil government to shield the terrorists from the attention of the world leaders. These murderous herders with their state to state nomenclatures have been terrorising the vast population of innocent armless citizens in Zamfara, Kaduna, Plateau, Benue, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi and Delta states with the complicity of the Nigerian security operatives. There exists completely no record anywhere in the country, where any among these bands of deadly criminals is standing trial for the dastardly acts. They are consistently laying siege on communities all over Nigeria with every amount of recklessness, destroying farmlands, streams, other economic activities of the people and also gruesomely killing the helpless dwellers. The government of Nigeria has continued to keep sealed lips while equally aiding and protecting their acts of impunity.
It is therefore necessary for the world leaders like Mr. Antonio Guterres of the United Nations, President Donald Trump of the United States of America, President Emmanuel Macron of France, Prime Minister Theresa May of Britain, President Vladimir Putin of Russia and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the nation of Israel amongst others, to consciously wade into this increasing predicament of the defenceless people in the Nigerian federation. Let not the international community rely on the unwilling and grossly compromised mainstream world media outlets or the Nigerian media organizations, to get the required information that will aid them in tackling the menace of these Fulani terrorists. What is happening in Nigeria presently is a festival of death but very unfortunately, the Nigerian government and the media are in deep synergy, concealing the criminal activities from the global community.
The world leaders must courageously arise and break the prevailing silence because they cannot continue to feign ignorance of the despicable activities of these murderers. Their respective embassies and information centres in Nigeria must be constantly feeding them with credible information on what the developments really are in Nigeria regarding this evil. Humanity is at the brink of monumental catastrophe and these global leaders must really do the needful to stem the tide.
