Igbo apex socio-cultural and political organization, Ohanaeze, has backed Pastor Tunde Bakare of the Latter Rain Assembly on his claim that Nigeria was under siege.
Bakare, while addressing his congregants during church service on Sunday, noted that terrorists, kidnappers and killer herdsmen were now in charge of Nigeria.
Media and Information Adviser to the President General of Ohanaeze, Emeka Attamah, told Vanguard that Bakare was “right because terrorists are really in charge of whatever is happening now in Nigeria.
“If terrorists are not in charge, why should officials of this government negotiate with leaders of Miyetti Allah who are demanding N100 billion to enable its members to stop killing Nigerians?”
“I am not even sure that they have not paid the money. I would not like to be quoted as saying that all the officials of this government are terrorists but I never knew that Nigeria would descend to this level of open brigandage. It has never happened before.
“There is nowhere in the world where the government is in tacit understanding with terrorist organizations.
“Governments usually fight to eliminate terrorists and not to encourage them.
“The Nigerian government should face terrorists and treat them as such and not to eat or dine with them,” he said.
