*Says investors won’t go to where people are killed, butchered

*Nigeria needs to put her house in order

In the wake of intractable security situations in the country occasioned by banditry, terrorism and herders versus farmers conflicts, the former Chief of Defense Staff, General Theophilus Y. Danjuma, rtd once again has expressed his concern about the inability of the country to tame the problem.

The revered General described Nigeria as a disgrace to the entire world for being unable to contain the spate of killings, maiming and destruction of properties around the country.

He said the country has become a laughing stock in the comity of nations.

He made the above statement yesterday while giving a speech at the the annual Nwonyo Fishing and Cultural Festival in Ibi Local Government Area of Taraba State.

He also called on the country to urgently rise up and redeem its battered image.

According to him, “No person or group of persons will want to come to our state or country if we continue to kill and butcher ourselves,” he said.

He said “If we continue to make our roads unsafe for people to move around, our dreams of making Nwonyo fishing and cultural festival an international festival, cannot be achieved.

“It is sad that Nigeria as a nation has become a laughing stock following the security challenges.

“All hands must be on deck in order to insert the right pegs in the right holes.

“As we are today, we are a disgrace to the whole world. We must put our house in order because right now we have become a laughing stock to the whole world. So we must make our roads safe.”

Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa State who also attended the occasion stated that, his administration would work round and clock to foster mutual cooperation with the Taraba State Government.

General Danjuma has been vocal against the politicization of the country’s security.

He once publicly accused the military of colluding with suspected Fulani herders to unleash terror on other communities in the North, especially in the North-Central in land grab agenda.

The military denied the accusation but the General was believed to have said the truth and the mind of many Nigerians, especially victims of the conflict under the Buhari administration.
