A Non-Governmental Organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has condemned the inability of all the nation’s security forces to put an end to the incessant mass genocide of villagers by freelance armed hoodlums in Zamfara State.
The Rights group accused the federal government of pursuing political correctness in tackling the persistent mass slaughter of innocent civilians in Zamfara State, adding that the President should have ordered the surgical and comprehensive law enforcement efforts to crush the growing number of well-armed militias operating in the State. In a statement made available to Saturday Vanguard, yesterday HURIWA insisted that there is already a comprehensive report of the cases of killings in Zamfara State put together by Committees set up by past administrations and whose reports made recommendations on the best way and far reaching mechanisms to bring to an end these senseless targeted killings of innocent Nigerians.
HURIWA condemned the federal government for only decisively showing interest in launching intensive manhunt for the armed hoodlums only when cases of cattle rustling are involved and wondered why the special forces put together and inaugurated by the military camouflaged wearing President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to protect human lives first and foremost since the fundamental human rights to life is sacrosanct and inviolable
