The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), an Islamic group in Nigeria, has apportioned the blame of the current insecurity situation plaguing the country to bad politicians.
Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola addressed the current happenings in the country in a statement released in Lagos on Thursday.
According to him, many Nigerians know the truth about the cause of the insecurity but have decided to keep mute over it.
He said: Some Nigerians know exactly who to blame but fear will not allow them to speak up. However, MURIC has a duty to say it as it is no matter whose ox is gored. Certain conscienceless elements are manipulating information by spreading fake news in order to incite Nigerians against the Federal Government.
“Bad losers among the politicians are also hell-bent on ensuring that the present administration fails in all aspects of governance,”
“The real active sabotage of government’s efforts at solving the security challenge was seen during the last #ENDsars protests.
“The release of prisoners, the burning of police stations and the carting away of police guns were all symptomatic of a deliberate attempt to render the security apparatus impotent as well as a determination to unleash anarchy.
“Nonetheless, the recent terrorist attack on Imo State Police command headquarters speaks volumes regarding the determination of anarchists to ensure that we continue to have security challenges. The simultaneous attack on Owerri prison during which about 1,844 prisoners were released further confirms the diabolical objectives of the anarchists,”
“It is only enemies of the society who can send dangerous criminals who had been incarcerated back to the society without allowing them to serve their jail terms, learn their lessons and repent.
“How then can we, in good conscience, blame federal government or Buhari for the rising wave of insecurity when we are the same people destroying security facilities and setting criminals free.
“The panacea lies in the good citizens of this country coming together to expose enemies of peace. Nobody should think that another leader has the magic hand,”
