Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to act swiftly as the country is being “set on fire”.

In a Twitter post on Saturday evening, Baba-Ahmed said Nigerians living in any part of the country must be protected.

He said there will not be any attack on southerners living in the north as a response to the alleged attack on northerners in the south.

“Attacking innocent southerners living in the north will not be the right response to attacks on northerners in the south,” Baba-Ahmed said.

“We should demand that Nigerians, wherever they are, must be protected. President and Governors: Do something, NOW! They are setting the country on fire under you!”
