The plateau state massacre has indeed raised a lot of dust amongst citizens of the country.following the plateau state massacre,the Niger delta millitant has recently declared a 21 days mourning period for the victims of the massacre.
The millitant who met at Ikot Abas,Akwa Ibom state,tasked the federal government with a 21 days notice to end all killings in the country,and work effortlessly towards securing the lives and properties of its citizens.
The millitants sternly warned the federal government that there will be doom if it failed to forestall anarchy and further bloodshed.the leader of the millitant W O I Izonebi gave a statement which reads….
“As agitators with conscience,we take lives of fellow Nigerians sacrosanct,as no amount of provocation will lead to the slaughtering of innocent Nigerians because of cows.
“We therefore declare 21 days mourning for the innocent nigerians killed in plateau state,by foreigners trained by late Gaddafi that are now masquerading as herdsmen,according to our president Muhammadu Buhari.
“We urge the government,to do the needful before the expiration of our 21 days of mourning,to avoid a total breakdown of law and order,because it seems we do not have law,and government is unable to implement its primary responsibility of protecting lives and properties of its citizens.
“We demand implementation of the following to avoid doom and more loss of lives.-the immediate devolution of power to states and region to enable governors discharge their primary responsibility of protecting lives and properties, and declaration, prosecution of the Gaddafi mercenaries,masquerading as herdesmen as a terrorist organisation.
“The government and security agenciees saddled with the responsibility of protecting nigeria and its territorial intergrity should apprehend the perpetrators of this heinous crimes against innocent nigerians and humanity.total overhaul of the security chiefs,immediate arrest of Miyeti Allah Cattle breeders association leaders with immediate effect.
We are not going to fold our arms to see foreigners masquerading as herdesmen slaughter and kill hardworking nigerians that are going about their legitimate business and livelihood anymore,when we have a democratically elected government in place.
“We therefore,warn that after this 21days mourning is over and nothing is done,the good people of the Niger delta and coalition of agitators will have no choice than to declare the herdesmen and Miyeti Allah cattle breeders association, enemies of the Niger delta and Nigerians in general.
“Therefore,we do not wish to see them in any of the Niger delta states because the pollution and degradation of our farm lands and the polluted waters and rivers are enough provocation,let alone seeing our mothers and sisters in alife threatening situation and being killed by cattle breedeers while the Miyeti Allah is applauding them because they value the lives of cows more than human lives.
