Mr President, tame the savagery!

Zabarmari Massacre: What does it mean for Maiduguri, service chiefs and Buhari?
Zabarmari Massacre: What does it mean for Maiduguri, service chiefs and Buhari?

The recent massacre of 43 farmers in Zabarmari village, in Borno State, brought many things into perspectives with regards to how President Muhammadu Buhari’s timidity to tame the inhuman savagery bedeviling the North.

This kind of barbarity wasn’t the first one. It happened sometime ago in Auno, Borno State, where a group of heavily armed insurgents carried out the mass murder of innocents civilians on transit.

The gruesome incident which attracted far-reaching condemnations, which equally deserved rebuke through the nationwide address from the president to calm down the nerves of Nigerians, however, ended up in traditional condemnations accompanied by empty promises of doing everything possible to avert a reoccurence.

Similarly, this kind of carnage occurred sometimes ago in Kadisau, a village in President Buhari’s home state, Katsina where 30 people were reportedly killed gruesomely by armed-wielding bandits.

At that time, no direct-solace or condolences visits by the President himself, but instead few days after the carnage, he boarded the plane on a ‘peace mission’ to Mali.

As presidential dancing steps are moving to the edge of the cliffs, President Muhammad Buhari and his henchmen have extra-time to provide a credible response to the spate of the massacre in the country.

Otherwise, the book of history is still wide open; it’s left for Mr President to choose the inks which his legacy should be written – the golden one or the muddy ink.

Mr President, Nigerians are tired of insecurity and uncertainty.
