My Take On The Kpuffing Of A General In The Hands Of Three Dirty Urchins | Very Sickening.

Recently, news broke of a retired Brigadier General who was tragically killed by three assailants. This heinous act not only highlights the precarious state of security in our nation but also raises urgent questions about our collective safety and the future of our country.

First and foremost, I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and loved ones of the late General. His untimely death is not just a loss to his family but to the entire nation. To become a General in the Nigerian Army requires years of sacrifice, dedication, and resilience. It’s a position earned through countless challenges and unwavering commitment to our nation’s defense.

The fact that three individuals, reportedly motivated by a paltry sum, could carry out such a brazen attack on a retired military leader is deeply troubling. It underscores the level of insecurity and lawlessness that has permeated our society. It’s a stark reminder that none of us are immune to the dangers lurking in our midst.

Moreover, this incident raises critical questions about our national security apparatus. While I commend the swift response of our security agencies in apprehending the suspects, we must ask why such prompt action is often only seen in high-profile cases. Our security should be proactive and consistent, ensuring safety for all citizens, not just when a military or police figure is affected.

The tragic irony here is that a retired General, someone who dedicated his life to defending our nation, could be so vulnerable. Reports suggest that the attackers claimed he was targeted because he carried an old, malfunctioning firearm — a chilling testament to the state of equipment and support for our military personnel.

This brings me to another troubling observation: the apparent impunity enjoyed by some in our society. How is it that soldiers and policemen are seen protecting internet fraudsters while a retired General had no protection at the time of the attack? It speaks volumes about misplaced priorities and systemic failures within our institutions.

Beyond the immediate tragedy, this incident serves as a stark warning about the broader challenges facing our nation. It’s a wake-up call for all of us to take our national security more seriously. We cannot afford to live in denial or turn a blind eye to the issues that threaten our safety and prosperity.

As I reflect on these events, I am reminded of the words of an Oxford-trained Deputy Central Bank Governor who warned years ago about the infiltration of extremist elements across Nigeria. His predictions are tragically coming to pass, highlighting the urgent need for proactive measures to safeguard our communities.

In conclusion, while I am deeply saddened by this incident, I am also compelled to speak out. Silence in the face of injustice and insecurity is not an option. We must demand accountability, transparency, and decisive action from our leaders and institutions. Our collective future depends on it.

Together we can make a difference.
