General Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign to cleanse Yoruba territory of Nigeria assumes a gruesome and tragic indiscriminate slaughtering of Igangan people. Given the hatred and hostility of Fulanis, the latest attack is neither new nor remarkable. According to SaharaReporters, Fulani herdsmen arrived Igangan in Ibarapa North area of Oyo State around 11 pm Saturday, leaving early Sunday morning with 10 persons dead. Some dictators are bad. Some are blood thirsty. Some are extremists. Some are warm...

In Nigeriia of today, under the clueless leadership of Buhari, Pantamism has come to join the ranks of notorious "Isms" that deals particularly in the Afliction of the Nigerian people with the virulent disease of terrorism. Just like how the regime deodarized corruption, Buhari's recent endorsement of Pantami is nothing short of the institutionalization of terrorism and religious extremism. it translates to the legitimization of the ongoing terrorism in the north and unfair vilification of t...

On April 6, 2021, amidst escalating violence in Nigeria, across every zone of the country and most local districts in the geo-political area largely known and identified as “the Northern Nigeria” Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Usman Alkali Baba, a Deputy Inspector-General, to replace Mohammed Adamu as the acting Inspector General of Police of the Nigeria Police Force. The new pick fits the profile of what I will classify as the new generation of police leadership in a notoriousl...

Insecurity in Nigeria is a self-afflicted disease orchestrated by bad leaders. The security architecture has been compromised by those who are saddled with responsibility to protect the country. A country blessed with massive wealth and abundant mineral resources but also “blessed” with terrible and corrupt leaders. Today, over 10 million children are out of school because of poverty. Education serves as a bedrock and hallmark to the development of any society. Lack of quality education an...

Too often, President Muhammadu Buhari has appeared – to citizens, commentators, and even his supporters – as too silent on burning national issues. The perception is not misplaced, going by his relative lack of reaction to multifarious incidents, including rabid insecurity plaguing the country, charges of ethnic cleansing and domination, as well as the recent #EndSARS protest. The president has tended to keep mute and relatively aloof of the occurrences, until very late, when too much damage has...

According to the Regency Acts in force, if the monarch is under the age of 18 years when he or she succeeds the throne, a regency is automatically established, and, until the monarch attains the age of 18 years, the royal functions are discharged by the regent in the name and on behalf of the monarch. The Regency Act is a sophisticated concept created to support a minor king who as a child cannot manage the affairs of the kingdom but in whose name the Regency Act executes the directives of th...

The media possesses near-celestial powers. It calls into existence what must be and what must not be. It can actuate change and mobilise consciences to a cause. It can destroy, it can build; it can hurt and it can heal. Yes, it can call into existence ‘’the things that do not exist’’, – the power of god. I must say, the power of the media is also its burden. The ‘’omnipotence’’ of this public institution straps on it great responsibility. After all, ‘’with great power comes great responsibil...

When I returned home some years ago during the Yuletide holiday my brother, Azuka, had come to the international airport in Lagos to welcome me. As we got set for the long journey to the east days after I was a bit surprised when Azuka brought out a 'pump-action' assault rifle he had bought and loaded it first inside the boot of the car. Upon inquiry, subdued by curiosity, he had told me grinning that banditry in the village had taken a turn for the worst so he needed to arm himself for any unfo...

The insecurity in Northern Nigeria today is not accidental. It was a deliberate social decadence systemically incubated over time and became a way of life for society. The political leadership, the oligarchy and the proletariats accept the talakawa and almajiri’s poverty concept as God’s will. This has been the way of life of the North. No nation in the world neglects its youth and expect to be at peace. The Almajiri system being practiced in the entire Northern enclave was a nuclear bomb wai...

“If the misery of the poor is caused not by the law of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin” -Charles Darwin. Security is vital to our existential peace and personal fulfillment in life. The buildup of banditry, kidnapping and armed violence has put millions of Nigerians in a state of gloom and despondency. The Nigerian state continues to grapple with many development challenges and the fallout continues to disrupt peace and devastate lives and livelihoods, just as it is taking a...

For quite sometime now the national discourse in Nigeria has been dominated by the Fulanis (natives and non-natives) among us, their 'sacred' cows and their armed and dangerous herders. And how they go about across the federation with manifest impunity attacking farmers in their ancestral lands, kidnapping some for ransom, killing others outright and generally terrorizing anyone who dared raise any voice of opposition or resistance to these criminalities. Since the embattled President, Muhamm...

I see the vapid and tepid response of the Buhari administration to the slew of juvenile abductions as the prodrome of elite bias. Yes, the proportion of response a challenge receives is metered by the social estate of those affected. This is how best I can conceptualise the impotence of the government in the face of the criminal harvesting of children for merchandise by bandits. The situation has never been this parlous, sickening, helpless, and hopeless. Nigeria has organically evolved into...
