A pro-democracy group, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), said it would amount to political sophistry for anyone to deny the realities of unprecedented state of insecurity all across Nigeria.
The group said facts exist to show that virtually all families in Nigeria may have suffered one fatalities or the other from the incredible high levels of insecurity, anarchy and impunity that pervade the horizon just as it wonders from which indices the Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai, is evaluating the state of security in the country at the moment and lambasted him for describing Nigerians worry over the state of insecurity in the country as political.
Besides, HURIWA faulted the reported parley between the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila, with armed bandits and hoodlums in Zamfara State even as it describes the act of holding dialogue with armed insurgents by any government official as an act of high treason and one of the most serious crimes against the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
HURIWA stated that state officials have sworn an oath on their honour to defend the Nigerian constitution just as the Nigerian constitution had in Section 6 conceded the judicial powers of the federation on the courts of competent jurisdiction meaning that crime suspects ought to be prosecuted and made to face the full wrath of the law and not to be applauded for their criminality just as the rights group asserted that by provisions of section 4 the National Assembly ought to be concerned about making good laws for the peace and security of Nigeria and not for the Speaker or anyone for that matter to undermine the constitution by engaging in nocturnal dialogues with outlaws who have declared war against the people of Nigeria and against the Nigerian State. HURIWA asserted that the extant Terrorism Prevention (amendment) Act has outlawed and overruled the holding of such illegal consultations with terrorists and bandits.
The rights group has therefore urged the Federal House of Representatives to impeach the speaker Mr. Femi Gbajabiamila for reportedly holding this unholy communion with freelance armed bandits responsible for thousands of killings in Zamfara State and for waging war against the Nigeria state.
The rights group regretted that the Speaker was still battling to clear his name of the cocktail of allegations that he embezzled his clients cash of $25,000 in USA which reportedly led to his alleged debarment from practicing law in USA and here is the same man seen or reported to be holding meetings or said to have negotiated with mass killers with blood of innocent citizens in their filthy hands.
