HURIWA calls for sack of Service Chiefs over incessant bloody attacks

HURIWA calls for sack of Service Chiefs over incessant blood

The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, (HURIWA) has called for the sack of the services chiefs in Nigeria, following the continuous attack on lives and properties by terrorists.

HURIWA decried the propaganda carried out by the service chiefs claim on winning the fight against insecurity as daily reports of kidnapping and attacks are frequent in Nigeria.

A statement by the National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko questioned the President's reason for maintaining the offices of the service chiefs even in their failure.

Onwubiko further  lamented that, the federal and state governments have failed in their primary function of safeguarding it's citizens as terrorists and kidnappers are having a field day with activities which have endangered the lives of the people.

"The increasing spate of attacks by terrorists have exposed the empty propaganda by spokesmen of the military regarding what they called breakthroughs in the war on terror. 

"They feed us with propaganda that they are eliminating top Commanders of terrorist groups but yet we keep reading about attacks by terrorists.  So who are these terrorists that have continued to bombard parts of Nigeria including Katsina, Borno, Benue and Kaduna states?"

"It is increasingly becoming true that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is waiting for the security situation in Nigeria to deteriorate beyond remedy before he could dismiss his thoroughly incompetent security chiefs and the National Security Adviser even as the Rights group said the President should prove naysayers wrong by dismissing his security heads who have only given Nigerian poor performance and fallacious excuses. 

"The President has tolerated a failed security architecture to be in place rather than undertake a holistic overhaul of the current incompetent security heads who are clearly incapable or unwilling to rein in terrorists and all kinds of armed non-state actors killing, maiming and destroying lives and properties of Nigerians in clear violation of the territorial integrity of the Sovereignty and the inability to protect lives and secure property of citizen amounts to a violation by the government of the constitutionally guaranteed fundamental duty of government which are to protect citizens and their property and to ensure the well-being and welfare of the citizens.

"The Rights group said the daily kidnappings of citizens by terrorists including the most recent abduction by terrorists in Borno State of over 100 girls into the bush, show that the security chiefs have ran out of any sort of effective ideas to save the nation from collapsing under the heavy weights of cocktails of violent and bloody attacks by terrorists,  armed bandits, kidnappers, cultists and private militia all across the Country.  

"Mr. President, are you waiting for the worst case scenario before you change your security strategy and remove the non-performing service chiefs?"
