Former ally of President Muhammadu Buhari, Alhaji Buba Galadima, on Tuesday said that considering the lingering insecurity in the country, it would not be a surprise if the President and Commander-in-Chief of Nigeria’s Armed Forces is kidnapped.
Reacting to the insecurity bedeviling the country in an interview with BBC Hausa service, Galadima said: “These bandits are disdainful to the Buhari administration. At the beginning of the government, everybody was scared of him (Buhari); expected him to be brave before he was now exposed to be toothless.
“Buhari knows nothing, he can’t do anything, that is why you see government officials siphoning billions from public property and nobody can stop them”, he said.
Galadima noted that if terrorists can easily overrun Kuje Prison, Buhari himself is not safe.
According to him, “if care is not taken, sooner or later Buhari too can be kidnapped considering the way security issues are ignored.”
“The only option available now is to either continue praying or arm ourselves for protection but if we depend on this government, definitely we will be killed”, he added.
