President Muhammadu Buhari has been encouraged to act decisively and declare a full-fledged state of emergency in Kaduna immediately.
He is urged to extend the state of emergency, if necessary, to other besieged states as this is no time for politics.
Recall that the terrorists staged a series of attacks in the Northern states last week, including assaulting the Kaduna-Abuja train and ambushing and killing military troops.
Apart from Boko Haram/ISWAP Islamic terrorists in the North-East and Fulani herdsmen/militants everywhere else, terrorists riding on the back of a separatist agitation are spilling blood in the South-East.
According to the stakeholders, Buhari must take charge beyond his endless, never-enforced orders to security chiefs.
The attacks in Kaduna require full emergency rule in the North-West state.
Governor Nasir el-Rufai admitted, “We are in a state of war; this place should be declared a war zone.”
Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a departure from the regime’s perpetual denial mode, echoed this: “They (terrorists) have declared war against the country and its people. We are at war, yes, we are!” Many patriots have been saying so before now.
