The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has described as heinous the alleged kidnap and assassination of the traditional ruler of Ubulu-Uku Kingdom in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State, HRM Akaeze Edward Ofulue III by suspected armed Fulani herdsmen, also joining the call on President Muhammadu Buhari to treat such premeditated killings as act of terrorism. 

The group alleged that President Muhammadu Buhari is looking the other way whilst his Fulani kinsmen unleashes violence on other Nigerians just as it warned the President that he may be in breach of the Constitution if he fails to take concrete measures to tackle this menace which is threatening to create animosity between other Ethnic groups against Fulani.

HURIWA, also, condemn the killing in very gruesome manner by South Africans of a Nigerian accused wrongly of been a drug trafficker, calling the action insensitive, despicable and absolutely condemnable even as “President Muhammadu Buhari has been tasked to take strong diplomatic measures to bring to a stop the incessant assassination and mob killings of Nigerians resident in South Africa by largely black South Africans.” 

HURIWA believes that Nigeria is losing respectability in the international community because of the lack of actions by the Nigerian Government to protect Nigerian citizens all over the World from unwarranted xenophobic and racist attacks by their hostile hosts.

HURIWA recalled that the monarch, HRM Akaeze Edward Ofulue III,  was reportedly abducted 19 days ago at about 4.00 pm, on January 5, 2016, by suspected Fulani herdsmen, and discovered stone dead 15 days after.

The National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf, thus, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct the National Security Adviser, the Military chiefs, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase and the Department of State Service to set up a national anti-kidnapping task force to jointly monitor the activities of armed Fulani herdsmen.
