Salihu Dawisu Tanko Yakasai, Governor Umar Ganduje’s Special Adviser on Media, has blamed Arewa community for the level of insecurity currently rocking the Northern part of Nigeria.
Naija News reports that the North region, in recent days, have been ravaged with reports of kidnappings and killings.
Boko Haram Terrorist group on Saturday beheaded 43 farmers in Zabarmari, less than 20 km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
Zambarmari is located in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.
It was also gathered that the bodies of the slain farmers whose throats were also slit is still been kept by residents of the area who are insisting they won’t be buried until the state governor, Professor Babagana Zulum sees their bodies.
Reacting to the latest Boko Haram attack in a post on Twitter, Dawisu Yakasai accused some Northerners of failing to speak up against killings and kidnappings in the north.
He wrote: “Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihirrajiun! 43 innocent souls lost for no reason, 43 families thrown into more darkness, 43 less farmers that will feed the nation, 43 new victims that have died in vain. 43 blood in the hands of those that are supposed to protect them.
“I blame Arewa for tolerating this level of insecurity. By the time each and every household, in each and every state is engulfed in it, perhaps then we will wake up and defend ourselves against these barbaric attacks & kidnappings. Clearly, no end in sight. #ZabarmariMassacre
“To even speak with one voice on the insecurity in the North is a challenge. We are not ready yet. #SecureNorth.”
