The National Publicity Secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop (Dr) Emma Gospel Isong has backed the advice by a former Minister of Defence, Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (rtd.) that Nigerians should defend themselves against killers.
Dr Isong in an seven-point to back the former Minister of Defence said Nnamdi Kanu of IPOB made a similar statement in 2014 and asked, “Is T. Y Danjuma now justified?
“During one of the Jos killing by Fulani herdsmen, an eyewitness said in the camp that it was the military men that came and gave information and they were attacked and killed.
“The girls in Dapchi that were kidnapped, one of them by name Leah was forced to renounce Christianity which she refused, that incident, does it now justify Danjuma?
“On the day Dapchi girls were kidnapped, two weeks before then, Army men withdrew from the check points, giving access to these kidnappers/militants. Is Danjuma not justified?
“The military and the police refused to protect citizens of Benue and Taraba given a free for all affairs for Fulani herdsmen to continue the expansionary move on the lives and property of Nigerians in the riverine areas especially in the north. Is Danjuma wrong?
Dr Isong further said, “The President told the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to relocate to Benue, he refused, the President himself did not know if the IG relocated, he didn’t know that IGP disobeyed him. Up till today, the IGP has not been removed or punished or sanctioned or queried, does that still make T. Y. Danjuma wrong?
The PFN National Publicity Secretary lamented that all security operatives in the country are Fulani except Nigeria Navy.
Hear him, “All Security operatives in Nigeria are Fulani people except the Nigeria Navy, the Air force is Fulani, the Police is Fulani, the Custom is Fulani, the DSS is Fulani, 90% of the security operatives in Nigeria are Fulani men and happened in the period Fulani herdsmen are attacking Nigeria. Is Danjuma still wrong?
“The way forward is for all Nigerians to rise up and defend themselves against these Fulani terrorists just as Danjuma has noted”, he advised.
