NIGERIA NEWSPAPERS: TODAY'S THE VANGUARD NEWSPAPER HEADLINES [25 MARCH , 2018].


Below are the headlines found on The Vanguard Online Newspaper for today, Sunday, 25 March, 2018.

Sun, 25 Mar 2018
Disengaged General of the Nigeria Army and former defence minister, Theophilus   Yakubu Danjuma, yesterday, spat fire by calling on Nigerians to rise and defend themselves against attacks by marauding herdsmen in some parts of the country, or continue to suffer  casualties.

“You must rise to protect yourselves from these people; if you depend on the armed forces to protect you, you will all die. “I ask all of you to be on the alert and defend your country, defend your state,”  he admonished.

He said the unnecessary killings, which is akin to an act of ethnic cleansing being perpetuated against the people of Taraba, specifically, and Nigeria, at large, must stop. An obviously and visibly angry Danjuma also lampooned the military  authorities  by slapping the institution with the accusation that it is complicit in the violent incidents by providing protection for the killers. “This ethnic cleansing must stop in Taraba, and it must stop in Nigeria. These killers have been protected by the military; they cover them and you must be watchful to guide and protect yourselves because  you have no other place to go”. Speaking    at the maiden convocation ceremony of Taraba State University in Jalingo, the Taraba State capital,  Danjuma,  who received the award of honorary   Doctor of Science from the University, lamented that in spite of the cultural diversity in the state, which was supposed to be used as a tool to bring unity among the people, there were armed bandits who come into the state to connive with the military to kill people and cause ethnic cleansing. Danjuma said when he arrived at the arena of the convocation, he saw a diverse cultural display organised by Taraba State cultural groups.   This, he said, was proof-positive that the state represents Nigeria in all aspects, stressing that there  was no need for the killings. The former Chief of Army Staff then warned that  “the ethnic cleansing must stop now otherwise Somalia will be a child’s play”. General Danjuma’s outburst is coming against the backdrop of recent violent attacks by killer herdsmen.  In the first 10weeks of 2018 alone, over 1351 people lost their lives , largely, as a result of violent killer herdsmen attacks. Some of these activities have been described as pure criminality. Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari has been very consistent in his call for peaceful co-existence in the country,m promising to resolve the crisis. He made a pledge of N100 million to the appeal fund of the university. While speaking, the visitor, Taraba State University and governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku, appreciated the past governors of the state for initiating the state university. He said his administration would continue to give priority to education and the university for a better Taraba. “The institution has made it possible for many Taraba residents to access tertiary education,” he said, and pledged government’s support toward making it a model.#
