Nigerians on Friday took to social media to lament the continuos killings going on in the country, saying “everyday is becoming a burial day. Funeral is becoming a daily service.”
I was highly disturbed when I read in the newspapers that 41 Nigerians were killed in Zamfara State. What is actually happening in this country? Why has bloodshed become so rampant? Why is the President silent?

The bloodshed in Zamfara is yet another tragedy in a series.There is no enough tears to cry.Mourning is becoming part of our lives.Everyday is becoming a burial day.funeral is becoming a daily service.The most tragic of all tragedies is when tragedy is no more a headline.

That the 17 Murdered in Florida gets more global media attention than the 41 Murdered in Zamfara,Nigeria tells more about the international community’s selective approach and selective interest in worlds tragedy and by extension crisis.

36 human beings were killed in Birani village in Zurmi Local Government Area, Zamfara, yesterday. They woke up with dreams and hopes of a better nation like all of us, only to meet their tragic end in the hands of another of Nigeria’s preventable dysfunctions: “unknown gunmen.”

Zamfara, Benue, Taraba, Kaduna.
Nigeria is on the “road to Kinshasa”.
The nation crumbles – while Lagos and Abuja remain oases of relative stability – but given this trajectory, the chaos will eventually get to Lagos and Abuja.

A massacre took place in Zamfara, everyone is relatively calm. We have been conquered. Our minds so messed up, our eyes seen so much blood that we don’t blink anymore. We can not continue like this.

Buhari has to bring an end to this incessant blood shed!
He’s got innocent blood on his hands!
If he can’t deal, he should resign and go tend his cows in daura

We can’t be celebrating the apparent defeat of BH while “unknown” gunmen claim lives in Zamfara and it’s environs. We can’t be tying the knot on one side while having a loose knot on the other. Insecurity is consuming us, it’s making life difficult. #ZamfaraMassacre

My thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved families of those killed in Birani village in Zurmi Local Government Area, Zamfara. No place in Nigeria should be unsafe for our people to live in. May Almighty Allah comfort them.
