#BenueMassacre In Nigeria and A Failing National Security Structure - Japheth J. @Omojuwa

#BenueMassacre comes on the heels of repeated killings by herdsmen. So far, government’s response has been a disaster. There is a feeling of, ‘this too shall pass,’ on the side of the government but we cannot always wait for the news cycle to deflect responsibilities of government. If a government fails at security, it has failed as a government! I made a statement about the rampant kidnappings and herdsmen killings and someone reminded me that “but Boko Haram have been defeated!” I do not understand us at times, we excuse the failings of government using one illogical guise or the other. Should Nigerians now begin to trade death from one form of terrorism to the other? That 81 Nigerians got killed should bring a nation to its knees, but Nigeria – government and people – does not appear concerned. We have become used to tragedy we have even come to expect them.
