Ben Murray-Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East has reacted to the statement by former Minister for Defence, General Theophilus Danjuma advising Nigerians to defend themselves against ethnic cleansing.
The lawmaker supported Danjuma’s counsel and called on Buhari’s government to heed the message and protect Nigerians.
Bruce said that the statement by the former General shows Nigeria is in a bad state, adding that the situation calls for immediate measures.
He tweeted: “Can anyone accuse TY Danjuma of not being a patriot? How many Nigerians have done for Nigeria what TY has done for this nation? Few. Very few.
“When he talks like this, we should know that it has gotten to a very bad state. I call on the government to heed his call.”
Also reacting, Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan declared that depending on President Muhammad Buhari to provide security for Nigerians is suicidal.
Omokri, who supported Danjuma’s statement, shared his position on Twitter.
He wrote “You still doubt that Buhari is a disaster? Watch TY Danjuma’s comments.
“God bless General TY Danjuma for telling the people of Taraba to defend themselves against killer herdsmen. You are a real man! Depending on President Buhari for protection is tantamount to suicide. Kudos sir.”
