8 Statements That Sound Like Compliments But Are Actually Insults / Where Did We Get It Wrong In Nigeria?... & Who Begat Corruption? / 10 Animals That Don’t Look Dangerous But Are Actually Deadly (2) (3) (4)
|Did We Actually Get TY Danjuma Well by Rhapsodi(m): 11:03pm On Apr 23, 2018|
During the convocation of Taraba State University (Tsu) Former minister of defense
Gen. TY Danjuma said..."Theres a tribal cleansing and that the military are bias, he however urge Tarabians to stand up and defend themselves, hence the military can defend everyone at the same time.
Since he made the statement alot of people have actually misquoted the General's statement and some quoted him out of context which resulted in many replies and messages from different individuals and groups.
TY Danjuma neither spoke in a missionary school nor an Islamic school, he didn't say it while in church or a mosque. he said it at Taraba State University's convocation, which compromises of students ranging from different religion and tribes, different beliefs and background. which means he was saying it to all Tarabans and Nigerians at large.
Defending oneself is neither religious sensitive nor tribal sensitive.
For an elder statesman and also a former minister of defense to say such, then he knows what he had seen and what he foresaw.
My problem is for those of you going head over hills about his statement, I have a question for you :
Do you plan attacking anybody or have you been the ones attacking people?
When has self defense become a crime.
If no, why then are you so much bothered, so you expect defendless citizens to be slaughtered and killed on daily basis while the government remains mute?
So if someone comes to attack you and you have the means to defend yourself, you shouldn't??"
