There Would Have Been War If Yoruba Had Done In The North 1% Of What Fulani Herders Have Done In South-West —Afenifere
The Pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has said Nigeria needs urgent intervention from the international community before the security situation in the country denigrates into a civil war.
Speaking on Tuesday when he appeared on an Arise TV Morning Show programme, the National Publicity Secretary of the group, Yinka Odumakin, said those projecting a civil war are not beating the drums of war but are simply being honest about the reality of the situation.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari is maintaining a "sinful silence" over the worsening security situation in Nigeria.
He warned that if a civil war erupts in Nigeria, the world and the international community will be badly affected.
Odumakin also defended a similar comment by Nobel laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, who earlier observed that Buhari's refusal to speak up might lead to a civil war.
