Frank said contrary to the constitutional provision that security of lives and welfare shall be the responsibility of government, the current administration is tacidly encouraging what is going on.
Recall that the protesting Shiites and the Nigerian Army had clashed where some protesting Shiites members were killed.
But while condemning soldiers deadly use of force on supporters of Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) during a religious procession in Zuba, near Abuja, Comrade Frank, in a statement on Monday, said the country has seen a sharp rise in the use of brute force by security agents to quail armless demonstrators.
According to him, a country where the value of human lives continues to depreciate on a daily basis can only be referred to as a failed state.
The former APC spokesman said the continuing detention of Shia’s leader,El-Zakzaky despite several Court orders is uncivilised by any leaders in the world.
“President Buhari-led administration have been releasing the dreaded Boko Baram jihadist under the guise of ‘repentant terrorist’ yet he does not see anything wrong in attacking the shia members who are peacefully clamouring for the release of their leader who the Court of law had set free.
“The disobedience of this administration to the decision of Court of law portents danger for the country’s peace and orderliness.
“If ordinary citizens are being killed under an elected democratic government in this manner, such h leader must be ready to be prosecuted for genocide after his short stay in power,” Frank stated.
Continued, the outspoken former APC chieftain wondered “how can an army kill her armless citizens with live bullets? I will never support the idea that live bullets were used on the protesters. What manner of provocation will make them shoot unarmed citizens? Soldiers shooting and killing unarmed protesters is a crime against humanity.”
While calling on international community to take note of the current development, Frank also called on Amnesty International (AI) and other rights protection international organizations not to close their eyes against the act of “killing innocent citizens for no just cause.”
