Responding to the question of how the unending spate of violence they put the blame on everyone, especially the government, and called for more effective measures to tackle the menace.
TERRORISM: #PulseFans Point Accusing Fingers All Around
#PulseFans on Facebook have passed the buck all around following Monday’s bomb blast at a crowded motor park in Abuja which left scores of Nigerians dead and several other critically injured.
Some like Okolie Geoffrey wanted a very tough response from the government.
“Let it be an eye for an eye, since they refused negotiations. Presidency should place an order, they knw d heads and sponsors, if d sponsors are captured and executed, then the boys will have power no more,” he wrote.
Others suggested a government conspiracy.
“Guys let's be realistic, where do they get such kind of explosive materials? They don't have such kind of money to export them and be killing innocent souls. They can't afford to buy Hilux and helicopters... our leaders must be sponsoring them for their political ambition,” Abberh Rioh said.
"Gather together all the top politicians in one place and set them ablaze,"Wisdom Erekeere said.
Technology would help tackle terrorist better some said.
“The federal government should employ people to mount CCTV cameras everywhere in d country especially in the northern states with effective monitoring,” Anuli Okoye posited.
It was not long before a call for a cry for help to external forces, especially Israel, was mentioned.
Isaac Slim wrote, “I know many times on newspapers, were the Israeli government pled with Nigeria govt to hand over the insecurities in Nigeria to them but our govt overruled it. The best time is to invite external power/forces to help us....we are dying.”
The return of the military era was also touted as the solution.
“Goodluck should step down for military to take over the government. After 2 or 3 years he should come back 2 continue.”
Surprisingly, some also wanted a return to colonialism.
“Let’s go back to colonialism it is much better that way because during the colonial era things were moving beta!” Temple Anichukwu wrote.
But there were also those who felt a total division of the country was the solution.
One of such people, Ademola Ayorinde, wrote, “Already there is division in the country and it will be better if there is separation now, before a section of the country is turned to war front and a war front is better not imagined.”
