The Kebbi State deputy governor, Alhaji Samaila Yombe Dabai , has condemned Gen TY Danjuma for chastising the military and urging Nigerians to defend themselves in the face of herder attacks across the country.
Dabai described the the speech by Gen Danjuma at the maiden convocation of the Taraba State University (TSU) in Jalingo as uncalled for and capable of plunging the country into state of chaos and anarchy.
According to Dabai , the military general was wrong by disregarding the constituted authorities especially the military he served as Chief of Army Staff to call on people to take up arms and defend themselves.
‘’Honestly, I feel disappointed that a senior officer of his rank and status in the country is saying the military has connived with the militia to launch attack on Nigerians, how can that be possible.
“Why is TY Danjuma calling on people to carry arms and defend themselves, i think the general should think twice and apologized to the military, he should understand the kind of complexity, the kind of battle the Nigerian army is facing now is quite different from his time as the military Chief,” he said.
