Get a detailed summary of the highlights and insights from the post Insecurity: ‘Over Eighty Thousand Persons Were Killed Under Buhari Administration’ – Ex-Military Gov, Umar.
According to Umar, over 80,000 persons lost their lives, while thousands of women and girls were raped under Buhari’s administration.
While rating Buhari’s administration’s fight against insecurity, the ex-military governor said, “The current violent struggle is disruptive and injurious to the nation and more so to its kinsmen. In summary, the failure of President Buhari’s administration in the area of security can be appreciated by the following statistics: Over 80,000 persons have lost their lives. Thousands of women and girls were raped.
He further stated that hundreds of thousands were kidnapped and killed or released after the payment of ransom.
“These other security challenges existed even though they were not as virulent as the Boko Haram insurgency. But unlike past administrations, the Buhari Presidency failed to deal decisively with them, causing them to fester.
Umar stated, “The current Biafran movement as represented by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was given traction by ex-President Buhari’s discriminatory and exclusionary policies against the Igbo, hence the Igbo voting decision by which they gave General Buhari five per cent of their votes and, therefore, undeserving of key appointments in his government. No person of Igbo extraction was found worthy of appointment as head of any of the security services in all of President Buhari’s eight-year tenure. We must view the Nnamdi Kanu-led IPOB separatist struggle in this context.
