A lecturer in the Department of Political Science, Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, Dr. Moses Wallad on Saturday said Nigeria was heading to total collapse, unless something was done urgently to break back the “first love,” that brought us together as one entity.
Dr. Wallad who spoke to DAILYPOST in Zaria on Sunday said Nigerians are passing through horrible nightmare, which may lead to tall destructions and complete end of the country that has come to stay since 1960.
According to him, since Nigeria gained her independence, never in its history, man steals man at gunpoint and later demand for, or sold him back to his/her relatives in the form of ransom.
“What I experienced while growing up as a little young boy was love for one another. There was no clear distinction between Muslims and Christians. As christians, we go to Muslims during salah or any muslim festive period and eat, wine and dine with them. Likewise, during Christmas, Muslims brothers and sisters go to Christians’ houses to celebrate with them.
” Never in the history of Nigeria we heard of bandits, terrorists. We only heard of armed robbers stealing cars and vehicles, and perhaps dispossessing some travellers of their belongings.
” Today, all that isn’t in vogue. Men with powerful weapons will choose who to steal in form of kidnapping, demand payment of ransom. If payment doesn’t come in good time, they take decision that best suits them. They become Lords, so powerful that they control the lives of their victims. It’s amazing.”
He reasoned that, should the bandits continue to dominate, one day, the criminals will take over the control of this country, rename it and control it the way they want.
According to him criminals have succeeded in stopping farmers from going to farm. They have made it difficult for Nigerians to get enough food to eat, adding that, many are suffering in abject poverty, frustration, lack, while others are dying silently because they have given up to hunger.
He praised the Army, Air Force and other security operatives for their relentless efforts aimed at eliminating banditry and other forms of criminalities in Nigeria.
