Uncertainty: HURIWA informs Buhari that Irabor has revealed you


The Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, came under fire from the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) on Monday for admitting that there are roughly 137 unattended borders in the north that allow terrorists from the Sahel to infiltrate Nigeria and perpetrate atrocities.

Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, the national coordinator of HURIWA, claimed that Irabor, who is supposed to be the top-ranking service head in the entire nation, was plainly implicated by the CDS’ admission.

The organization encouraged the CDS to prepare for the nation’s security concerns and propose solutions to the unmanned borders that terrorists from the Niger Republic and Chad use as entrance points to conduct attacks in Nigeria, or to resign if he had no ideas for how to handle the matter.

What happened to the use of information technology, such as drones, to prevent the entry of nefarious actors and their weapons into Nigeria via the Northern axis? HURIWA enquired

Irabor stated, “The porous condition of the borders has made it easy for terrorists and criminals to enter the country to commit mayhem,” on Friday during a public lecture in Lagos.

HURIWA’s Onwubiko commented in a statement on Monday that it was disheartening that the Chief of Defence Staff has gone to lamentation when his job is to address the security crisis rather than wear down Nigerians with the evident challenge of porous borders.

“The self-incriminating admission by the CDS, who took office on January 26, 2021, has Nigerians baffled. If the general is aware that he cannot protect Nigerians as promised in his oath of office, he has failed Nigerians and ought to step down so that a capable leader can crush the bloodthirsty terrorists and bandits that are engulfing the nation with unspeakable murders and a boom in kidnappings for ransom.

“Nigerians are tired of the justifications offered by CDS and other military leaders since they are being slaughtered in great numbers every day. Nigerians prefer results to justifications. The enormous boundaries that are allegedly permeable and unstable should be monitored by the CDS using drones and unmanned aerial vehicles.

To block or prevent terrorist infiltration into Chad and the Niger Republic, where the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has showed obvious sympathies, more men should be recruited to manning these borders.

By the way, why should Nigeria authorize more border posts than it is able to defend as a sovereign state? Is the administration aware that maintaining secure borders is what gives a nation sovereignty?
