Justice is a scarce commodity in Nigeria – Sen. Dino Melaye



In Abuja, senators have taken turns to describe the injustice in Nigeria.  While senator Dino Malaye cried out that justice is a scarce commodity in Nigeria, Sen. Sam Anyanwu maintained that the so murderous Fulani Hersmen must be tagged terrorist and not play politics by tagging them Fulani Herdsmen.

The senator representing Kogi west constituency, Sen Dino Melaye opined that “Justice is a scarce commodity, the president and Vice President should take a bold step and ring the bell of justice.”
Speaking on state policing, an issue debated over the years, Senator Godswill Akpabio said, “We should revisit the constitutional review where we can start State policing and community policing so as to curb these kind of internal mayhem.”

On his own part, Sen Gemade said “Police commissioner, Director DSS and Army commander of Benue State reported that those harboring these foreign armed bandits are known and reports have been sent to FCT.”

Supporting postulations of fellow distinguished senators, Sen. Sam Anyanwu said, “ They must be tagged as terrorist since they are foreign armed bandits and not play politics by tagging them as Fulani herdsmen.”

In response to the above positions of these senators, the senate president Dr. Bukola Ssaraki said, “I am not unmindful of the sobering fact that the new year has met many citizens in a reflective mood. Many were on the queue for petrol.

“Many households are grief-stricken. This mood of reflection is also one from which no lawmaker is immune; what affects one, affects all. When one part of the body is hurting, the whole body hurts, and this holds true for the entire nation.

“Distinguished colleagues, you will agree with me that even more sober reflection attends the killings in some parts of the country, particularly recent tragic events in Benue State.
“We condemn these killings in the strongest terms & we declare that mindless bloodletting has no place in our society. I offer our sincerest condolences to the people of Benue & indeed to all who have suffered the loss of their loved ones as a result of these wanton acts.
