Senior pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has said that bandits, kidnappers, cattle rustlers, killer herdsmen and looters had become the commander-in-chief of Nigeria.
Bakare, a former running mate of President Muhammadu Buhari under the platform of Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), said on Sunday that he was disappointed at the inability of authorities to stop unruly activities nationwide.
He said: “It is evident that the bandits; criminals, killing people every day; those kidnapping people over the place; and cattle rustlers and killer herdsmen terrorising the people are in charge in this country; they are the commander-in-chief.
“Nobody seems to know what to do anymore; the terrorists are in charge. They have even extended their regime to these areas. They now kidnap lecturers; doctors are no longer safe.
“The whole nation is under the control of terrorists. But in the name of the Lord, Nigeria shall be delivered. I shall witness the deliverance and greatness of Nigeria.”
Bakare also said it was shameful for the presidency to attempt to put Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria on the same social status as Yoruba and Igbo socio-cultural groups, Afenifere and Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“How can a group that has been rated as the fourth most deadly group in the world by the United Nations, a group of terrorists, be the same as Afenifere?” he asked.
