Emir Of Daura, Umar: Insecurity Now Worse Than Civil War by iwaeda: 11:56am On Jun 30
THE Emir of Daura, Katsina State, Dr Umar Farouk Umar, has raised alarm over what he described as multifaceted security threats facing the nation, saying what Nigeria is experiencing now is worse than civil war. Dr Umar, who is the emir of President Muhammadu Buhari’s community, solicited for prayers, advice and goodwill of all Nigerians, especially elders, traditional and religious leaders in the country, to overcome banditry and other security challenges the way the civil war was overcome with such prayers, without sentiment.

The emir’s views were shared by Pan-Yoruba Socio-Political Organisation, Afenifere; umbrella body of Igbo socio-cultural organisations, Ohanaeze Ndigbo; and the Pan-Niger-Delta Forum, PANDEF.

While Afenifere said Umar’s view tallies with those of many prominent Nigerians, Ohanaeze said Nigeria was in an unofficial civil war. PANDEF added that Nigeria’s security architecture is no longer in a position to address the nation’s security challenges, stressing that it must be overhauled.

These came on a day Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, asked members of the special forces deployed to Katsina State not to relent in their fight against banditry, warning that they had no excuse for failure. Don’t distract security forces, Emir urges Nigerians The Emir also cautioned Nigerians against “undue interference in security matters to avoid distracting the security agencies, more so since the President is a former war-tested general and a two-time head of state, who knows the military more than any civilian.”

Speaking when the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, on operational visit to Army formations in Katsina State, visited him, the emir called for the same approach used in tackling the civil war to tackle the raging insecurity in Nigeria. He noted that President Buhari took over the reins of power at a time Nigeria was on the verge of collapse, adding that the current situation is like that of spectators who see all the faults in the players but cannot do better if given the chance.

While advising the Army Chief to remain resolute, focused and shun distracting comments from any quarter, the emir commended the Nigerian Army and its leadership for the commitment and untiring efforts to contain the myriad of security challenges in Nigeria and in Daura Emirate of Katsina State, in particular, since he took over as the COAS.

Dr Farouk used the occasion to thank the Nigerian Army for setting up a Forward Operating Base (FOB) and a battalion in Daura town, to enhance response to security threats in the area and surrounding communities, which had so far commendably assisted in providing the required peace and security in the areas. While praying for the military and all other security organizations in their operations aimed at securing the nation, the monarch emphasized the need for people to consistently support the military and other agencies by providing useful information on movements and activities of suspicious persons in their communities, for them to succeed in providing the necessary security for the people and the nation.

Lt. Gen Buratai was at FOB Daura and the 171 Battalion Daura, where he was briefed on the operational state of the Army formations to checkmate banditry and associated insecurity in their area of responsibility. Gen Buratai assured the emir, the emirate council and the people of Nigeria of the renewed vigour and determination of the Nigerian Army to tackle the security challenges in the North-West and the country as a whole.

He said his visit is in response to concerns occasioned by recent bandit activities in different parts of the region and Katsina State in particular. “Already, the Nigerian Army has commenced reorganization of its operations across Nigeria and that senior officers of the service are in the state to fully implement the clear directive of President Buhari to effectively checkmate the security challenges in the country,” he said.

Government will play politics with this. Ours is a government without conscience. All they think about is how to staleal from every opportunity thinking it is all about money. What's been happening to all the money allocated to ministry of defense? Are they not to defend our land territory?

NE and NW is being claimed by bands sooner they will move to other places.

And I say that's a wild lies. How did he arrive on that claims? The Biafra civil war was not fought in the North nor West, all the fight started and ended in the East, so he obviously has no idea the level of horror they unleashed on Biafran people, if not for Chiukwu Okike Abiama and bravery of the great Biafrans, they actually intend to erase us as a race. What they are witnessing today is called nemesis over their evil against the Biafrans and Nnamdi Kanu told them this will come. So if the Emir think they have seen alot, they should just take a chill because this is where they're still in Genesis, by the time they get to Malachi they would have understand the need for Biafra Exodus. Remember that the greatest prophet of now, His excellency Mazi Nnamdi Kanu. Ohamadike 1 Biafra gburu gburu told them that if they refuse Biafra Independence Somalia and Slovakia will be a child's play compared to what will befall Nigeria. Is it not happening now?

That is in the North. It's less critical here. The problem is President Buhari's ear is paining him and he is unable to travel abroad for treatment because of the current pandemic.
Bear with the situation for now
