A pro-democracy and leading non-governmental organisation, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to admit his spectacular failure in stopping the taking into hostage and gruesome murders of some aid workers by the armed Boko Haram terrorists.

HURIWA said that by virtue of a plethora of municipal and international humanitarian laws that are binding on all persons and authorities holding such political position of a head of state and head of government, President Buhari has no valid, justifiable, rational, coherent, verifiable and cogent excuses to make for his administrations serial failures to effectively curb the heightened situation of terror attacks by such non state actors like the armed Islamists known as Boko Haram terrorists. HURIWA quoted the 1994 declaration adopted by the United Nations as measures to eliminate international terrorism, states are obliged to put practical measures to ensure that their territories are not used for terrorist installations, training camps or for the preparation of terrorist acts against citizens even as it wondered why Sambisa forests have yet to be totally liberated going by video evidence circulated by the terror masterminds.

Besides, HURIWA has also asked President Buhari to declare as national heroines all those girls slaughtered by Boko Haram terrorists including Leah Sharibu and others still being held by the diverse factions of the dreaded armed Islamists in the North East of Nigeria.

As part of the national declaration of those massacred by Boko Haram terrorists as heroes/heroines including the aid worker Miss Hauwa Liman, the Federal government must pay heavy compensations of not less than N50 million to the families and grant full scholarships up to university levels to the children of those left behind by the victims of terrorists and most especially those taken as hostages. HURIWA argues that it is the constitutional obligation of government not to allow armed bandits and terrorists to roam freely and abduct citizens just as it stated that the blame for this failure lies squarely with the head of state and commander in chief of the armed forces of Nigeria.

HURIWA stated that the capture of the three or so aid workers embedded with the international committee of the Red Cross/Crescent, including Miss Hauwa Liman and her colleagues were completely avoidable given that her capture was reportedly recorded on the social media.

“The successes recorded by the terrorists in capturing hostages of high value and other successes they have recorded in the recent deadly attacks of military formations and the killings of hundreds of soldiers must have been caused by poor intelligence gathering and failure to act when information is relayed to the armed security forces,” the group said.

According to the group, “President Buhari should stop insulting our sensibilities by claiming that his government did all they could but never succeeded in stopping the hostage scenarios and the consequential gruesome killings.

“This is because that statement is a total admission that this current government no longer has workable strategy to stop these spates of attacks by armed terrorists. The primary duty of government legally is to protect lives and property of Nigerians. The failure to stop the killings of hostages by Boko Haram terrorists is a failure of constitutional responsibility for which the Nigerian government was elected. Instead of apologising to the parents of the dead, we are regaled with the press statement that president Buhari personally called the parents to claim that he did his best. It means his best is not good enough.”
