Buhari, Fulani herdsmen and dereliction of duty

Two incidents in Nigeria involving deaths summed up President Muhammadu Buhari’s gross dereliction of duty.

Armed Fulani herdsmen killed 15 farmers yesterday in Udeni Ruwa district, Nasarawa Local Government Area of Nararawa state. And Abdul Atta, a retired permanent secretary in the old Northern Region from nearby Kogi State died.

Buhari sent his condolences on Atta’s death and had nothing to say about the 15 dead farmers. Over 2,000 people were killed in Nigeria’s “Middle Belt” in attacks by herdsmen in 2015, and the president continues to ignore the problem.

This is a flagrant disregard of his constitutional responsibilities, as the Nigerian Constitution states that: “the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government”

The documentary “When Hate Murders Sleep” by TVC News looks at the crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in Plateau State.
