Buhari Threatens Another Genocide Against Igbo People Like During Nigerian Civil War

Buhari has warned those promoting insurrection in the country, threatening that his government will treat them in the language they understand.

President Muhammadu Buhari has threatened to deal with youths in the South-East in a manner similar to the genocide committed against the Igbo people by him and other military officers during the Nigerian Civil War.

Buhari issued this threat in a post shared on his Twitter page on Tuesday, while reacting to the raging attacks against government facilities across the South-East.

Scores of police stations have been burnt in the South-East by unknown gunmen, who had also razed no fewer than 11 INEC offices, 13 vehicles, 429 generators, others in over 41 attacks in the last few month.

Reacting the situation on Tuesday, Buhari said many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Civil War between 1966 and 1970 when Nigerian troops waged a war against Biafran secessionists.

The President then threatened that those ‘who were in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.’

“I receive daily security reports on the attacks on critical national infrastructure, and it is very clear that those behind them want this administration to fail. Whoever wants the destruction of the system will soon have the shock of their lives. We’ve given them enough time.

“I received a briefing today from the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, on the series of attacks on their facilities nationwide. These attacks are totally unacceptable, and we will not allow those behind them to achieve their evil objectives.

“I have assured INEC that we will make available to them everything they need to operate efficiently, so that no one will say we don’t want to go, or that we want a third term. There will be no excuse for failure. We will meet all of INEC’s demands.

“In the area of security, we have changed the Service Chiefs and the Inspector-General, and we are demanding that they rise fully to the challenges confronting us. There must be zero tolerance for all those those bent on destroying our country by promoting crime and insurrection!

“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
