A social media activist, Adamu Bello Karofi, has dragged President Muhammadu Buhari and other parties responsible for the safety and security of Nigerians to court over their “nonchalant attitude” towards the present security situation.
The other parties include the Attorney General of the Federation, the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Air Force and the Nigeria Police Force.
This is in the aftermath of setting ablaze a vehicle conveying no less than 42 passengers, fleeing their troubled locality in Sokoto on Tuesday, which left the passengers dead.
“We are dragging the Nigerian government to court over [her] nonchalant attitude, carelessness, and flippancy, which led to the gruesome slaughter of farmers in Zabarmari and the burning to death of travellers in Sokoto,” the activist says, posting images of the “writ of summons” on his Facebook timeline.
“Those who believe he can assist us with his time, knowledge, wealth, or strength should indicate.” He will join [our] group. May God help us.”
Recall that in November 2020, terrorists of the deadly Boko Haram group slit the throats of no less than 43 peasant farmers in Zabarmari, Borno State.
The incident prompted outrage from Nigerians, who also called on President Buhari to resign.
There is a spike in the activities of terrorist bandits in the northwestern part of Nigeria, where people are killed, kidnapped, and displaced on a regular basis.
Despite security measures taken by the federal government and other state governments, the menace continues to become quotidian.
