SaharaReporters has posted a tweet on its official Twitter account about the political interview on the state of the country anchored by Reuben Abati on Arise TV on Tuesday; while the guest was a retired officer of the Nigerian Army who goes by the name Retired Col. Hassan Stan-Labo.
Bearing his mind while responding to questions during the interview, Labo stopped at nothing as he expressed his disappointment and anger at the lingering spate of insecurity in the country. He lamented that Nigeria is presently at the mercy of the Boko Haram insurgents, bandits and kidnappers which are all in the northern part of the country. And buttressing his claim, he said that after the marauders have killed tens of thousands of innocent souls.
Speaking further, the ex-military chief angrily condemned the idea of negotiating with kidnappers both with private and goverment's funds for the release of their victims. But in the face of all this, the goverment has all it requires to deal with the outlawed criminals once and for all, instead of paying them ransoms. And referring to the might and ability of the Nigerian military to overpower the urchins, he reminisced on its successful operations in Liberia and Sierra Leone respectively.
And lastly, he regretted that the elements are destroying the existence of the country; and then took time off to appeal to whoever cares to immediately tell President Buhari that the country is drowning. See screenshots from the interview section below:
