Zamfara killings: Nigerians task Buhari to declare state of emergency


Nigerians on social media have cried out over the incessant killing of innocent citizens in Zamfara State.

It was reported that some gunmen attacked a mosque at Kawddi Village in Zamfara State, leaving four persons dead with eight others injured.

Reacting to the recent massacre, Nigerians, while accusing Buhari of focusing on his 2019 ambition and not protection of human lives, expressed disappointment with Buhari.

They, however, called for the declaration of a state of emergency in Zamfara State, in response to the killings.

Below are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter:

@Papadonkee, ”I hear bandit-kings have taken over Zamfara state.Zamfara, where only 28 students registered for common entrance exams. Zamfara, poverty capital of Nigeria, the poverty capital of the world. Yet Buhari, your President and C-in-C, is more concerned about the 2019 elections.”

@el_bonga, ”Dear @MBuhari, you have failed the people of Zamfara State. These killings have been going on for years and your administration hasn’t done anything to end it. These people deserve better; you need to #SaveZamfara from the shackles of these murderous bandits #ZamfaraMassacre.”

@bashiryusuf, ”I call on patriotic Nigerians to join the campaign to #DeclareZamfaraStateOfEmergency in order to help save human lives. The scale of killings in Zamfara State is unprecedented. It is unconscionable and unreasonable to allow it to continue.”

@AdeBanqie, ”There is problem. Nigeria has a problem Zamfara State is under attack. The Zamfara people didn’t vote for you to reap deaths in return. The carnage happening there should give you cause for worry. Do all you can to keep Zamafara safe. ”

@North__king, ”I can’t condemn Goodluck Jonathan for Boko Haram and defend Buhari for Zamfara’s killing. Gov. Abdulaziz Yari and President Buhari have failed the good people of Zamfara state. May Allah give them the chance to meet up to peoples expectation.”

@Deji_Blissfield, ”Zamfara state has been used and dumped. Zamfara was the pilot state for Sharia Laws in Nigeria, Nigerian politicians used the state to collect funds from International Islamic Organizations. Now killings are going on there and nobody cares.#DeclareZamfaraStateOfEmergency.”

@Hailfinger1, ”@MBuhari Presidency deployed 30,000 security men for Ekiti election, but only deployed 1,000 to fight terrorism in Zamfara State. Those wondering why insecurity in Nigeria 🇳🇬 is on the rise should take note and do the math.”

@nafeezi, ”There won’t be an emergency meeting in Aso rock on the massacre in Zamfara state since it has nothing to do with politicians from Zamfara leaving the APC. Their lives don’t matter, it is their politicians that matters.”

@Maybeks, ”Federal government is sending 1000-strong military force’ to Zamfara State after people have been killed but sent 30,000 Policemen to Ekiti where people were only exercising their civic right. As you can see, this Govt. priority is to win an election and not security of lives and property.”
