the other day recently there was news in virtually all the social media in Nigeria and in virtually all the main-stream media outlets as well that the motor convoy of a State Governor in Nigeria had been attacked by gun men and that this had happened

in broad daylight
in day time
IN i.e WITHIN THE GOVERNOR’S OWN STATE

and
➡️ while the Governor was on official duty
➡️ while the Governor was on publicly announced official duty.

make no mistake about it.
State Governors in Nigeria belong to the elite class of Nigeria society.
State Governors in Nigeria belong to the financial / economic elite of and in Nigeria.
State Governors in Nigeria belong to the social elite in and of Nigeria

and

while State Governors benefit from the reverence, respect and deference
which is usually accorded to persons in the socio-economic elite category in Nigeria, they,
far beyond and above such general courtesies,
unlike most other Nigeria residents
… including those in the socio-economic elite group …
also have
a very strong protective network around them
made up of ace Security Personnel from the various security agencies in Nigeria including, for example, the Nigeria Police, etc, etc.

so it is a rather un-common event here in Nigeria to hear that a Governor
…. whether still serving or out of office ….
has been attacked by anyone / anybody be they bandits, robbers, hoodlums or terrorists.

i guess that gives any reader outside of Nigeria some idea of the kind of shock that the news of an attack against a State Governor moving
in broad daylight
in his own state
with a full convoy of security detail
including Army and Police Officers
sent across the whole of Nigeria.

the rumours and the published detail in the media is that
this State Governor was attacked by Boko Haram
and that
➡️ THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THIS STATE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN ATTACKED
➡️THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THIS STATE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN ATTACKED BY BOKO HARAM
and that
➡️ THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THAT THIS STATE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN ATTACKED
➡️THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THAT THIS STATE GOVERNOR HAS BEEN ATTACKED BY BOKO HARAM

➡️ and that the Governor is Governor Babagana Umara Zulum
➡️ and that he is the Governor of Borno State In Northern Nigeria, Nigeria

GOVERNOR BABAGANA ZULUM

clearly if priviledged folks like State Governors ( and their convoys? / motor-cades ) are being attacked in Nigeria
then
THERE IS A GLARING NEED FOR NIGERIA TO PROVIDE
STRONGER SECURITY & PROTECTION
WITHIN THE NIGERIA AREA.

add to this
the worrisome scenario where
un-educated, illiterate cow-rearers now called herdsmen in everyday Nigeria parlance

rumoured to be mainly from the fulani tribe of Northern Nigeria
( and also from the fulani tribe of other Western Africa countries )

armed with high grade weaponry like AK-47 rifles
which against Nigeria law on the possessing of weapons by the civilian populace
they have not registered with the relevant Nigeria security agencies

have been
raping women,
kidnapping women ( and some men ),
killing people,
attacking individuals, communities and farm-lands

across
➡️ Middle Belt Geographical / Administrative /Socio-Political Zone Nigeria e.g Benue State
and
➡️ South-West Geographical / Administrative /Socio-Political Zone Nigeria e.g Lagos State, Ekiti State
and
➡️ South-East Geographical / Administrative /Socio-Political Zone Nigeria e.g Anambra State, Ebonyi State

then
THERE IS VERY CLEARLY A GLARING NEED FOR NIGERIA TO PROVIDE
STRONGER SECURITY & PROTECTION
WITHIN THE NIGERIA AREA.

make no mistake about it.
the attacks by the illiterate fulani tribe cow-rearers
wielding dangerous high-grade weaponry has not just been targeted against only
the farm-lands of poor Southern Nigerians and poor Middle-Belt Nigerians
and poor Southern Nigerians and poor Middle-Belt Nigerians

but also against

the farmlands of the high-and mighty of Southern Nigeria and Middle-Belt Nigeria
and high-and mighty of Southern Nigerians and Middle-Belt Nigerians.

recall as supportive example
the attacks against the farmlands of the South-West Nigerian Chief Samuel Olu Falae,
● a former Federal Minister of Finance of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
● a one time Secretary to the Government of the Federation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

CHIEF SAMUEL OLU FALAE

and his kidnapping by the fulani herdsmen in 2015.

the attacks by the fulani herdsmen in South-East Nigeria have been particularly violent
and have involved
● several rapes of South-Eastern Nigerian women-folk
● several violent killings of South-Eastern Nigerians
● several destructions of the farmlands of South-Eastern Nigerians

added together the clear inference from all of these terrible, horrible happenstances
is that,
to put it mildly,

THERE IS NEED FOR NIGERIA TO PROVIDE
STRONGER SECURITY & PROTECTION
WITHIN THE NIGERIA AREA
