Buhari govt waging war against IPOB, journalists – Falana

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government of waging a war on members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and journalists.

Falana made the accusation in a statement released on Sunday.

According to him, the government treats bandits, who are not different from Boko Haram terrorists, with kid gloves.

He accused the Federal Government of “deliberately refusing” to declare bandits as terrorists.

Part of his statement in part reads, “For reasons best known to the Federal Government the criminal elements who are responsible for the brutal killing of innocent people and abduction of thousands of people including primary school pupils in the North West Zone are called bandits and not terrorists.

“While the Federal Government is waging a full-scale war against the Shiites, IPOB members and journalists have continued to treat the so-called bandits with kid gloves.

“It is undoubtedly clear that the criminal elements who abduct unarmed Nigerians, kill them or release them after collecting ransom in millions of Naira are terrorists.”

Falana stressed that these bandits who attack police stations and attack innocent Nigerians are terrorists and should be declared so.

“The criminal elements who attack correctional centres and release inmates therein are terrorists. The criminal elements who destroy government properties or public facilities are terrorists,” the statement added.
