Controversial lawyer, Festus Keyamo who has hitherto kept mute on the incessant killings of unarmed people from the middle belt by the terrorist Fulani Herdsmen because of what he wanted from the APC led government.
Keyamo who claims to be a human rights lawyer has never for once spoken against the menace of Fulani Herdsmen which has taken the lives of over 3654 people who are mostly christians since Buhari took over power. The people that are been killed by the maurauders, don’t they have the right to live?
President Buhari’s government is characterised by flagrant disobedience to court orders, disregard for human rights, continuous witchhunting of political enemies and the gagging of the media which the constitution upholds.
What is expected from a man who “supported the abduction of his Urhobo sister, Ese Oruru from Ughelli by Yunusa Dahiru a northerner. Ese Oruru was 14 years old when she was abducted. She was raped, forcibly Islamized and married off without her parents consent. The conversion and marriage took place in the palace of the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi. Upon her release, it was discovered that she was five months pregnant with her kidnapper’s child.
Well meaning Nigerians condemned Yunusa Dahiru’s actions and called for his prosecution. Human rights lawyer, Ebun Adegboruwa, called the incident a “clear case of child trafficking” and “a worse form of corruption. When Festus Keyamo was asked about his take on the matter “He said it is a case of two adults and that they should marry them off” just because he needed an appointment from Buhari.
Yesterday was the Children National Day, President Buhari never made mention of Leah Sharibu in his speech who is still been held by Boko Haram because she refuses to denounce her christian faith. Is Leah Sharibu’s case not an infringement to the fundamental human rights which Festus Keyamo claims to be defending?
Festus Keyamo is happy now because his sycophancy and praise-singing of Buhari has finally paid off. It is a known fact that he has been appointed as the official spokesperson for President Buhari’s 2019 election campaign an appointment that is worth over
