A group, Middle Belt Forum (MBF) has send a Save Our Soul (SOS) appeal to the international communities to come to the aide of ethnic nationalities who are constantly attacked and killed by militia herdsmen.
Rising from it emergency meeting, the group said it resolved to call on the international community to stop the ongoing genocide “because the Nigeria Government has failed us.”
The group in a statement by its President Dr. Bala J. Takaya and Public Relations Officer Dr. Isuwa B Dogo said the genocide in Benue, Southern Kaduna, Adamawa, Plateau, Taraba, Kogi and Niger states by alleged herdsmen is several times, over and above the havoc of Boko Haram in the North East.
They questioned: “Why then has the federal government not declared war on these killer terrorists?
“The deliberate and consistent elimination of the autochthonous tribes in the North and Middle Belt attests to a systematic plan to exterminate all ethnic nationalities in the North and Middle Belt.
“The conspiracy of silence and inaction of the Federal and State Governments is completely unacceptable,” they said.
The group it has observed with dismay that the Federal Government once in a while sends half-hearted sympathies to the devastated communities on Social Media but renders no help either in terms of food, shelter or medication for the injured or displaced ones.
“No visit by government officials or even NEMA; even international NGO’S have not been encouraged to render any help. There are no functional IDP camps in any of the devastated areas or visits by government officials.
“These types of killings are not reported, but are a daily occurrence. The consequence of this to the nation would be made manifest sooner or later.
“We call on the United Nations and all democratic, peace loving people of the world to come to our rescue and stop this Genocide because the Nigeria Government has failed us,” they said.
