HURIWA Condemns Buhari’s Silence On Kaduna Airport, Rail Attacks

 The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria on Tuesday condemned what it described as the

silence of the President, Major General

Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on the attacks of

terrorists on the Kaduna Airport and the

Kaduna-Abuja rail track.

The group also carpeted the Federal Government

for failing to take urgent action as regards the

the security situation in the country.

group of terrorists had bombed the Abuja-

Kaduna rail track and attacked a train filled with

terrorists attacked the Kaduna airport on

invasion of the National Assembly complex

within the three arms zone of Abuja before he

would realize that he has no effective National

services in states whereby terrorists are having a

field day to ascertain whether these inefficient

security heads are inevitably working with

armed non State actors in the South East of

Nigeria and North West for them to be recording

the kind of successes that they have achieved in

the past months at the cost of the economic

dislocation of Igboland and the North West”.
