Enugu - The Civil Liberties Organization, (CLO) has alleged that President Muhammad Buhari’s inaction on the recent herdsmen killings in Enugu State suggests that he is behind the dastardly acts, Vanguard reports.
CLO said had a similar crisis befallen another country in Africa, Europe and other parts of the world, Buhari would have been the first to condemn the killings while he turns a blind eye on the endless killings of his fellow country men and women.
CLO, also vowed to follow, inch-by-inch, the arrest last Monday, of one herdsman, Ibrahim Adamumale, 20, nabbed in Affa, Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State for allegedly being in possession of a sophisticated gun, an AK-47 rifle with 24 rounds of live ammunition.
CLO’s anger was against the backdrop of the arrest by operatives of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP’s Intelligence Response Team, IRT, on the alleged masterminds of April 25 Nimbo massacre of 13 natives, based on credible technical intelligence.
