Obasanjo Fears Rwanda Type Genocide As He Writes Yet Another Letter To Buhari
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has written yet another to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The last letter the elder statesman wrote to the president generated so much uproar as he criticised Buhari severly and asked him not to seek another term.
In the letter dated July 15, Obasanjo said he is very worried over the high level of insecurity in the country.
He called on the president to take decisive action, saying
“To be explicit and without equivocation, Mr. President and General, I am deeply worried about four avoidable calamities:. abandoning Nigeria into the hands of criminals who are all being suspected, rightly or wrongly, as Fulanis and terrorists of Boko Haram type,” he wrote.
“Spontaneous or planned reprisal attacks against Fulanis which may inadvertently or advertently mushroom into pogrom or Rwanda-type genocide that we did not believe could happen and yet it happened.
“Similar attacks against any other tribe or ethnic group anywhere in the country initiated by rumours, fears, intimidation and revenge capable of leading to pogrom;
“Violent uprising beginning from one section of the country and spreading quickly to other areas and leading to dismemberment of the country.”
