The Nigerian Army has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to read the riot act to mischief-makers, Fulani Herdsmen, Armed bandits and agent of destabilization in the country.
In a press release issued by Lieutenant General Alani Akinrinade, the Military on Friday said it learned that there are Fulani mercenaries from outside Nigeria being sponsored by some Nigerians.
General Akinrinade suggested that the President should read the riot act to the Fulani herdsmen adding that it is not acceptable for any foreigner by whatever name to enter Nigeria illegally and molest Nigerians.
He noted that Nigerians should not by mistake of omission or commission be allowed to degenerate to self-help which is a sure route to anarchy.
In the Press release which was signed by Colonel Sagir Musa, the acting Director Army Public Relations, the Military warned that famine is imminent given the danger posed by some Fulani herdsmen in collaboration with unexpected bad weather this year.
According to the army, the country is already burrowing grains from the ECOWAS countries because farmers are being forced to abandon their farms.
General Akinrinade urged Buhari to take a firm stand on the restructuring of the country, physically, politically, economically and socially noting that Nigeria may end up without a country, as no country has been known to survive two civil wars.
However, the Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen TY Buratai observed that the issue of restructuring is a political matter as he also implored all to continue to cooperate with the Federal Government.
Buratai thanked Gen Akinrinade for identifying the negative impacts of social media in spreading falsehood and fake news in the country. The COAS appreciated the General in identifying the wrong perceptions being projected by the enemies of the country.
He further advised Nigerians not to rely on social media reports which are mostly fake and largely unfounded.
