A lawyer and retired Captain in the Nigerian Army, Captain Casmir Nwafor, has said that the major reason he left the army was because of the actions of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Nwafor in a statement said that he was in the army in 2015 when Buhari won the presidential election, saying that the president said certain things that didn’t go down well with him.

His words: “If you say, as Commander-in-Chief, that you are not recognizing my people, why am I in the army fighting for the country? I had to stay back because in short service you must stay 10 years.

Then, I had three years. Immediately the three years ended, I left.

By the president’s body language, by his appointments, he has shown the other parts of the country that they don’t belong.

Then, they are killing people here and there, in Benue, Plateau, you don’t care. You are talking about Ruga.

“The president’s body language and actions are fuelling the tension in Nigeria. Under this government, Nigeria has not been so divided, just like in 1967 when we had the civil war.

This is where we are heading. Nigeria is so divided because of the activities of one man, the president.

The other day they had security meeting. Almost all the Security Chiefs there are Fulani, Hausa or Muslim. There was nobody from the Southeast.

The Vice President who is from the Southwest has no say. In fact, most times, they don’t even call him for meetings.

Anything you are discussing and you don’t have the major tribes together, then there is going to be a problem.

Before, it was only Southeast. Now, everybody is becoming alienated and disenfranchised.”

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has said he will not yield to the pressures from criminals to relax the night curfew declared across the state.

The Governor vowed that the curfew will continue following the gains that have been made since it was imposed.

The statewide curfew was imposed over a month ago in response to series of attacks by unknown gunmen on various police formations across the state.

Speaking during a statewide broadcast on Friday, Governor Wike said security agencies will continue to take the fight against criminals to their den until they are completely neutralized.

In words “as a matter of fact, they want us to prematurely terminate the statewide night curfew for them to have the leeway to operate again and roll back the gains of the last few weeks but we shall not give in to these pressures as the security of lives and property is more important for us to safeguard at all cost than the business of social interest of anyone else or group”.

The Governor also ordered the demolition of shanties and illegal structures along the Eleme-Onne axis of the East-West road in the state as additional measures to check insecurity.

The Governor said the demolition exercise will be carried out within two weeks from Friday.
