A former Minister of Defense, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.), set the public domain on fire last week after he urged Nigerians to defend themselves against killers in the country.
Danjuma was speaking at the maiden convocation of the Taraba State University, Jalingo, Taraba State, when he made the call.
“I am not a politician and politics is one profession I don’t want to belong to because if I am a politician, I would not say what I am going to say to you now.
“When I arrived this arena, I saw rich cultural display, and I was amazed at the rich cultural heritage of our people. Taraba is a mini Nigeria with diverse ethnic groups living together peacefully, but the peace in this state is under assault.
“There is an attempt at ethnic cleansing in the state and of course, some rural states in Nigeria.
“We must resist it. We must stop it. Everyone of us must rise up.”

I’ve been in this hell hole called Nigeria for a while. But this video of TY Danjuma giving a stern warning about a coming all-out war is the most sobering thing yet. Trust me, he knows one or two things. pic.twitter.com/OPBpkKF608
