Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma is fed up with the Nigerian Army. He seems to have completely lost confidence in them.

On Saturday, the retired army general asked Nigerians to defend themselves from blood thirsty killers instead of waiting for the security forces to protect them.

The former Chief of Army staff said this during the 10th anniversary of the Taraba State University, Jalingo, while accusing the armed forces of providing cover and defending the killers.

“You must rise to protect yourselves from these people. If you depend on the armed forces for protection, you will all die one by one”, said a visibly angry Danjuma.

“The ethnic cleansing must stop now. Otherwise, Somalia will be child’s play. I ask every one of you to be on the alert and defend your country, defend your territory, defend your state because you have nowhere else to go.

“The armed forces are not neutral. They are conniving with the armed bandits that are killing people,” he said.

Danjuma described Taraba as a miniature Nigeria with beautiful cultures which the bandits were doing everything to destroy.
