General TY Danjuma does not need publicity. He is a man that rarely talks on national issues but when he speaks, he makes a lot of sense. The same goes for people like retired Generals Yakubu Gowon and David Ejoor. So, when people like that speak, we should take their statement seriously.’’
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Sunday, March 25, reacted to the call Danjuma for Taraba state indigenes and Nigerians as a whole to take up arms and defend themselves against herdsmen attacks.
Danjuma had earlier said the Nigerian Army was biased in defending the masses and urged Nigerians to take up self defence while speaking at the maiden convocation of the Taraba State University.
