Danjuma asks Nigerians to defend themselves against killers, says ‘armed forces not neutral’ Theophilus Danjuma, a former minister of defence, has asked Nigerians to defend themselves against killer herdsmen. Danajuma said this while speaking at the maiden convocation of Taraba State University. He said the army and other security agencies colluded with killers to attack Nigerians. The retired general accused the army of “bias”, saying it has failed in its responsibility of securing the country from attacks. “The armed forces are not neutral. They collude with the armed bandits. They kill people, kill Nigerians. They facilitate their movements, they cover them,” Danjuma said. “If you depend on the armed forces to stop the killings you will all die one by one.” “This ethnic cleansing must stop in all the states of Nigeria. “I ask everyone one of you to be alert and defend your territory, your state. You have nowhere else to go.” The former minister said the killings in the country must stop, or else “Somalia will be a child’s play”.
