It is a disheartening on what “Irigwe Youth” did on a gruesome massacre of over 25 Muslim Fulani and several others got injured and some where missing earlier Saturday around Rukuba area, in Plateau state. The victims who are on their way back to their homes after attending a special Jumma’at Dhirk and prayers for peace in Nigeria which held in Bauchi state.

Its unfortunate, the victims came far from northern states like Kwara ,Kogi , Ekiti and other southern part of the country to attend the prayers but they were blocked, attacked and killed by the Irigwe youth. What have they do? Just because they are Muslim? Or just because they are Fulani’s.

It is worrisome and pathetic in this country the way innocent soul are being killed in everyday, taking into cognizant that this travellers went for special prayer for the nation for peace to rain, but they where slaughtered on what basis, just because of their Ethnicity or religion.

In 1999 constitution of Nigeria as amended, every citizen have the right to move everywhere around the country and practice any religion he want, but this right is not guarantee because of the recent happenings, and it is very unfortunate that government cannot guarantee the security of innocent citizens traveling to other part of the country peacefully.

In few years back, such incident has happen around that area where hoodlums come out in mass with weapons and attack innocent people just because of the Ethnic difference and communal clashes. Also General Alkali was attacked and killed on his way to Bauchi state, all this it isn’t enough for government to take necessary action against the “Irigwe Youth” on their terrorist act.

Why always Fulani or Muslim travellers, if you want to fight your enemy, you should go and confront them and fight for what you referred to as your right, but just because you are selfishness, you will came and attack innocent people and you think you are above the law, ‘enough is enough.

We the Northerners are tired of this condemnation from the Federal and state government, bacause when ever such things happen the government will come out and condemn the incident and symphatize with the victims without taking any action known to Us. But if government take a serious actions against anyone found guilty, this will help to overcame this issue and it will also help to bring peace in the country, but if necessary care is not taken the order part will take revenge and the issue will became worrisome in the country, which we are not praying for.

At this point, government should stand-up to it’s responsibility by protecting the life and property of the citizen, also to fish out the perpetrators and bring them to justice, it is a very high time for government to teach them in the language that they will understand.

We want justice, we want government to prosecute the perpetrators and their sponsor. We pray to Allah to forgive the short comings of the deceased and make them amongst the “Shuhada” , and also give their families and love once the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
