Danjuma’s Comment, Invitation To Anarchy – FG
First, I am wondering why the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has not declared General Danjuma wanted for his statement.
At least former military leader, Ibrahim Babangida's aide - Kassim Afegbua did much less to get his fingers burnt.
Reactions have continued to trail the statement credited to former Minister of Defence, Theophilus Danjuma.
On Saturday, Danjuma called on Taraba people and Nigerians to defend themselves against herdsmen attacks.
“You must rise to protect yourselves from these people; if you depend on the armed forces to protect you, you will all die,” Danjuma had said.
But the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan-Ali, said Danjuma’s comment was “highly uncalled for,” and an invitation to anarchy.
Dan-Ali spoke in a statement by his Public Relations Officer, Col. Tukur Gusau.
“On a recent comment by one of the elder statesmen alleging that the military colludes with bandits to kill people and calling on them to rise and defend themselves, this is highly uncalled for and it is an invitation to anarchy. It should be disregarded by well-meaning Nigerians.
“The Armed Forces are professional in discharging their constitutional mandate. Therefore, if anyone has evidence of wrongdoing or dereliction of duty against our troops, he should bring forward such evidence through the appropriate channels for necessary action.”
