The Human Rights Writers of Nigeria, HURIWA, has tackled Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari accusing him of Islamizing Nigeria with his appointments.

HURIWA alleged that by Buhari’s appointment of another Northern Muslim, Usman Alkali Baba as the new Inspector of Police, he has shown that he is an unrepentant nepotist and bigot.

The group also faulted Buhari for appointing Northern Muslims to head virtually all security arms of government.
