24 hour curfew imposed in Nigeria’s Kaduna after scores killed in communal violence

 

Buhari, who campaigned in the 2015 elections on being tough on insecurity and insurgency from Boko Haram in the northeast of the country, has battled with the perception in the country that he has not been decisive on stamping out the violence in the Middle Belt of the country.

Insecurity in the country is certain to be a defining issue in the upcoming 2019 presidential elections, and President Buhari faces a fierce re-election battle.

 

Central Nigeria has seen bouts of deadly communal violence that some blame on ethnic and religious differences and others blame on tensions over increasingly scarce resources in Africa’s most populous nation.

I am a civil, human and political rights activist. I chose to speak for the ignored and powerless. The Nigerian political scene is a jungle. Print and electronic media are owned by wealthy elites who irrespective of ethnicity and religion suppress public discourse of misgovernance, their political and economic ineptitude which has left Nigeria on it's knees. Ibomtent.com seeks to fix that. That is our aim. That is my life calling and purpose.
