Human rights activist and co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, Aisha Yesufu has today hit out at some Nigerians who insulted her last year December, when she said if care was not taken, the spate of insecurity ravaging the northern part of the country would soon be experienced in the south as well, with the outspoken activist saying it is foolish when people refuse to read the handwriting on the wall.
The country has witnessed a huge increase in cases of insecurity in recent months. While the Northern part has been ravaged by the deadly Boko-Haram terrorist sect and banditry, the South has also seen a steep rise in cases of kidnappings and attacks by unknown gunmen, with many Nigerians increasingly expressing worries over the seeming inability of the security agencies to put things back to normal.
However, Aisha Yesufu who has always urged Nigerians to speak our against the growing insecurity today in reaction to a video of gunmen setting ablaze the Divisional Police Headquarters in Imo State carpeted Nigerians who insulted her when she was telling them that there could be a repeat of the insecurity being witnessed in the northern part in the south.
While tweeting on her verified Twitter handle, she had said: “In December, I said when they are done with the North they will come to the South and many took the opportunity to insult me. Citizens are as bad as the rulers in never being proactive. Refusing to read the handwriting on the wall and being generally foolish. Gosh!”
