CJTF Benue attack; Tradtional ruler’s alleged involvement. You cry wolf all the time and no decent help comes. you sit down and wonder why?

My question is why not?

I mean how do you expect the government or anyone for that matter to take your security challenges seriously even if there are genuine ones when you yourself are creating some?

Armed gun men were reported to have invaded a meeting of the civilian joint task force (CJTF) in Abaji of Katsina-Ala local govt, Benue state killing 10 members and seriously injuring 2 others.

This was reported by the chairman of the CJTF Alhaji Aliyu Teshaku to have happened in the afternoon of yesterday sunday 15th, January 2017 when the members converge for a routine weekly meeting.

Sadly the chairman of the CJTF also said that the group over a period of time has been in a running feud with a traditional ruler in the area. He also confirmed that the traditional ruler had before hand threatened members of the task force to leave the area.

He noted that he had reported the matter to the special adviser to the governor on security a few days ago and now they have this attack at hand with the state command public relations officer,  Assistant Superintendent Moses Yamu collaborating his story.

If Mr Moses Yamu’s report is anything to go by, then it is very disheartening that a supposed elder state man of such caliber as a traditional ruler be a clog in the wheel of progress with regard to tackling security challenges in the state in particular and the nation at large.

But more than that, it also goes to explain why efforts to curb these security challenges in Benue state as a whole have not yielded the kind of result that would pass as satisfactory.

I mean if elements among leaders of the state are involved in sabotage of security efforts to the point of ordering hit attacks on security operatives, how serious do you think any one will consider us when people particularly women and children get hacked down in cold blood by herdsmen and other agents of crime?

What right would we as a people have to seek national security help and indeed get decent one if we are now known to create them ourselves?

It makes you wonder;

What does a traditional ruler stand to loose if the security of lives and property is ensured within his territory?

Should it not  be a welcome and appreciated development having constant security personnel on ground to protect his people if there is the semblance of threat ?

It is very important that these allegations about the traditional ruler in question are not ignored in the investigation into the attack on the Civilian Joint Task Force.
