Murder of Pregnant Lawyer: NBA blows hot, Slam Buhari Government over Insecurity

Spread the love

The Nigerian Bar Association has slammed the Minister of Defence, Major-General Bashir Magashi (retd.), over his call on Nigerians to defend themselves against gun-wielding bandits and kidnappers.

 

The NBA described such call as “a sign of failure” on the part of regime of the President, Muhammadu Buhari.

It also urged the Inspector-General of the Nigeria Police to investigate all the circumstances surrounding the murder of a pregnant Warri-based lawyer, Nkiru Agbasu, who was reportedly shot dead by yet-to-be identified gunmen along Warri-Sapele Highway in Delta State on Wednesday.

The NBA made the call shortly after an emergency meeting of the Warri Branch of the association held on Friday to deliberate over the killing of one of its own.

The NBA National President, Mr. Olumide Akpata, who was represented at the meeting by the Association’s first Vice-President, Mr. John Aikpokpo-Martins, said that the “NBA will not take the incident lightly with anybody because a threat to one is a threat to all”.

“This is not a case that can be swept under the carpet”, he said, insisting that “the police must unravel the perpetrators of the heinous crime with a view to punishing them accordingly”.

Also speaking at the meeting, the Chairman of the Warri Branch of NBA, Mr. Emmanuel Uti, stated that the Branch was grieved while the entire members have been mourning since the unfortunate incident.

He raised the alarm that “security in Delta State has deteriorated to an extent that lawyers and other professionals are scared to move around freely”.

He said, “Security has failed woefully in the country. There is need to rejig security. There is urgent need for a renewed security architecture. Warri, Delta, in particular is tensed up because of insecurity as manifested in the daily reports of killings and kidnappings all over the place. NBA Warri will pursue this case to a logical conclusion.”

On the call for self-defence by the minister, the NBA Chairman said, “Is he (the Minister) calling on Nigerians to defend themselves with bare hands? It is a sign of failure. It is a sign that we are all in trouble.”
