MUSING: Killing of Innocent citizens by Fulani herdsmen

Quote of the Day: "In every caricature there is an element of truth". 

The deafening silence from the Presidency in what has become the daily maiming, killing and destruction of properties by the marauding Fulani herdsmen in Nigeria only brings to mind the betrayal of the pigs who lead the revolt in George Orwell's satire "Animal farm", whose slogan becomes: "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. I don't want to believe our leaders are trying to tell Nigerians that the lives of some Nigerians matters than the rest.

This madness started long ago, but the brazen attacks on innocent citizen increased 1000% since President Muhammadu Buhari, who himself is a Fulani assumed power after a landslide victory in the 2015 general elections.

The number of Nigerians killed by Fulani herdsmen in the last 10 months is over 1000, from the attacks on the Agatu people in Benue State to the kidnapping of the elders-statesman and former secretary to the government of the federation "Chief Olu Falae and must recently the Monday attacks on Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State, which led to the loss of hundreds of lives and destruction of properties worth millions of Naira.

My questions are, Are we on a road to a Rwandan style genocide where an estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000  Rwandans were killed during the 100-day period from April 7 to mid-July 1994. Where the Hutu tribe led government mass-slaughtered the Tutsi tribe?...

Are we going to fold our arms, watch and wait till these marauders and bloodthirsty herdsmen kill us all?

When will President Buhari, address the nation on this crisis?

Is there really hope for Nigeria, with the bunch of charlatans at the helms of affairs?.....

Don't forget to sign the petition to UN here:Killing of innocent citizens by Fulani herdsmen must Stop in Nigeria
