Human rights activist, Femi Falana has accused the government of President Muhammadu Buhari of defending killer-herdsmen which was why the issues continued.

He said it has come to a point where the people needed to defend themselves as the Buhari-led government had failed the people.

According to Falana, that was why he had accused the Buhari administration of portraying itself as defending herders and not other Nigerians because Almajiris have been deported, beggars and the destitute deported, but that the President never defended them.

“The government never raised any constitutional issues. My position is that the government can stop the citizens from taking the law into their own hands to assure the people in concrete terms of the security of their lives and property. It is a simple and straight forward matter,” he said in an interview on The Punch Online programme.

He said Nigerians elected people into offices and that it was the duty of the government to defend them.

“And I expect Nigerians to mobilise and compel the government to guarantee the security of lives of everybody. So, it is not about citizens attacking one another; it is about not allowing the government to dodge their responsibilities to the people,” he said.

Falana stated that Section 14, sub-section 2b provided that the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.

He said that section did not say, the security of the people shall be the responsibility of any citizen and that the government must perform the duty “and there are solutions to these problems that have not been addressed.”


  1. Femi Falana MR KNOW IT ALL
    All your contemporaries are Registrars, Magistrates and Judges, you still stand in front of them to defend land dispute, what’s wrong with you that you cannot form a political party, Femi Falana you’re not relevant in the society again, like Femi Fani Kayode that one don’t know where he throw his wig.
    Femi Falana thought he’s representing public interest, is looking for away to bring unrest to the society, a former Governor Ayodele Fayose trash his application and Governor Fayemi K.I.V his application a rejected son of Ekiti State, he’s only interested in riot that’s it.

  2. Our Eastern Security Network ESN will from now henceforth defend our BIAFRAN LAND stoutly. Any more attack from these fulani soldiers will be reciprocated.

  3. Buhari’s sentimental attachment to his killer fulani herdsmen has overly turned many Nigerians to forming varying degrees of security networks.

    Unless Buhari stopped his killer fulani herdsmen from abducting, raping, killing and butchering Nigerians added to their disruptive activities to farming, many people are ready to rise up to the plate and defend their right to existence and dignity at all costs.

    The dangers of Buhari’s inaction in checking the excesses of his killer fulani herdsmen is the foreseeable emergence of militancy which would ultimately snowball into possible civil war and dire consequences for the continued existence of Nigeria.

    Enough said. Buhari MUST do the needful before it’s too late.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.
