Nigeria Tipping Towards a Dangerous Cliff, Warns Obasanjo

In an open letter addressed to President Muhammadu Buhari, Olusegun Obasanjo says "only the president could forestall such a looming disaster", warning the security situation in the country could lead to "spontaneous or planned reprisal attacks against Fulanis, which may inadvertently or advertently mushroom into a pogrom or Rwanda-type genocide".
