Let's Protest Against Boko Haram —Seriki Hausawa


Seriki Hausawa of Lagos State, Alhaji Aminu Idris Yaro has called on Nigerians to embark on public demonstrations against the activities of the dreaded Boko Haram sect, blamed for several deaths through bombings in the northern part of the country.

Alhaji Yaro who is also the Chairman of the Arewa Traditional Council in the state, wondered why people have not taken to the streets to protest the activities of Boko Haram like they did against the fuel subsidy removal.

He said it was a painful that people put their comfort far above the collective comfort of the Nigerian masses as was demonstrated during the protest against fuel subsidy removal.

“When subsidy was removed on petroleum, people protested and the whole country was shut down. Some patriots even died during the protests. But when hundreds of people are killed by members of a sect using bombs, nobody is staging a protest.

“Where is that ‘Occupy Nigeria’? Where is El-Rufai? Where is Pastor Tunde Bakare? Where are the celebrities, artistes and musicians? Where are the opposition parties? Where are Nigerians? Are they not aware of the blasts that rocked Kano city? Why is everyone keeping mute now? Or is Kano State not part of Nigeria ? Is this not a more serious issue for all Nigerians to wear black rags and truly ‘occupy Nigeria ’ with peaceful protest against mass killings of innocent ones?

“Do we have energy and strength only to protest subsidy removal on petroleum? Everyone seems to be afraid now. What a big shame,” he stated.

While expressing shock over the bomb blasts, he urged Nigerians to rise up and condemn the murderous activities of the fundamentalist sect. “Nigerians should not allow themselves to be used by self seeking opposition but join hands to build a great and united country,” he added.
