President Muhammadu Buhari has been asked to stop the attack allegedly being planned by Miyetti Allah Kauta Hore targeting South East of Nigeria and arrest “the chief mastermind of the terrorism plot, one Saleh Hassan, who issued a media statement to that effect.”

HURIWA has urged all groups in the South East of Nigeria and all over the country to reject violence and opt for harmonious relationships amongst all ethnicities and religious affiliations. The rights group has charged all relevant law enforcement agencies to protect Nigerian citizens wherever they choose to live and engage in legitimate businesses.  “Herdsmen who are Nigerians must be protected and encouraged to embrace modern technology and practices of ranching their cattle and not engage in open grazing of cows in farms which creates conflicts,” HURIWA said in a statement signed by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, and National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf.

The rights group also has asked the National Assembly “to impeach the President for failing in his primary constitutional obligation of protecting lives and property of the citizens and for betraying his constitutional oath by siding with Miyetti Allah Cattle Owners Association which has being behind many attacks across Nigeria.”

“That over 39 students of a Federal Tertiary School in Kaduna have spent over a month in captivity and President Buhari refuses to act to rescue and now individuals are paying ransom by actively seeking GOFUNDME donations to raise cash for ransoms even as this shows that the current government has collapsed,” HURIWA said.

It quoted the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore’s Secretary Salleh Alhassan as saying: “The security agencies should intensify efforts in dealing with all those terrorists killing Fulani herders, burning police stations, prisons and destroying institutions in the South-East.”

HURIWA warned Buhari “not to repeat the mistake of allowing Miyetti Allah to carry out their threat against the South East as has being done in the past.”

“It is on record that President Buhari often overlooks such open threats by Miyetti Allah to kill innocent citizens but only to spring up from hibernation and slumber to shed crocodile tears after the terrorism has been carried out. There are a plethora of such pattern in the past in Jos, Plateau State, Benue State and Enugu State. The Federal government must stop pushing Nigeria to a state of war. The Miyetti Allah official Salleh Alhassan must be arrested for threatening South East of Nigeria,” the rights group said.
