“This Sort Of Attack Pushes More Innocent Legitimate Herders Into Criminality.” – Adamu Garba

Adamu Garba Talba has reacted after an Air Force airstrike killed 1500 cows in Kishinbila and Donga of Taraba State, saying that the attack is the kind that pushes more innocent legitimate herders Into criminality we see today.

On Saturday, the Nigerian entrepreneur and politician reacted after an Air Force airstrike killed 1500 cows in Kishinbila and Donga of Taraba State, saying that the attack is the kind that pushes more innocent legitimate herders Into criminality we see today.

It was earlier reported that an Air Force airstrike killed over one thousand five hundred cows in Kishinbila and Donga of Taraba State. Reacting to this, the former elected Senator for the Yobe South constituency of Yobe State took to his official Facebook page to air his view about the incident.

Adamu Garba Talba noted that the Air Force airstrike that killed 1500 cows in Kishinbila and Donga of Taraba State is uncalled for, adding that the attack may push more innocent legitimate herders Into criminality we see today.

While sharing pictures of the killed cows, Adamu Garba said that it’s high time the military start taking responsibility for building civil resolution and tabletop discussions to provide security than just raining bombs on innocent villagers and their animals. 

Adamu wrote, “The Air Force airstrike that killed 1500 cows in Kishinbila and Donga of Taraba State is uncalled for. This sort of attack pushes more innocent legitimate herders Into criminality we see today.

“You can’t destroy the cultural livelihood of villagers, an asset indirect value of worth more than a billion naira and claimed victory, what sort of security Is that? It seems more insecurity is created by such non-strategic action.

“Families are destroyed, businesses attacked, destines shattered and I bet government won’t do anything to compensate them or provide the needed relief for innocent victims.

“I think is high time the military start taking responsibility for building civil resolution and tabletop discussions to provide security than just raining bombs on innocent villagers and their animals. 

“Granted some of these guys can be criminals, but I cannot remember any crime committed by cows. It seems far too easy to destroy animals instead of deploying intelligence to filter out the criminals, isolate them, and send them for justice.

“Given that military is an institution of violence, but that violence is more profound when deployed outside the borders. Within our borders, we must deploy all means possible to save the lives, properties, and dignity of Nigerians. That should be the most appropriate way to handle our internal crisis.

“Throwing bombs on innocent people doesn’t stop crime, it perpetuates it. We need to be warned.”
