The Callous And Shameful Illogical Comparison Of Malami, AGF

Comparing one thing to another that is really not related, in order to make the other look more or less desirable than it really is, is classified as illogical or inconsistent. This can also be seen as false equivalence, which is a logical fallacy in which an equivalence is drawn between two subjects based on flawed or false reasoning. This fallacy is categorized as a fallacy of inconsistency. Colloquially, a false equivalence is often called "comparing apples and oranges, maybe out of hatred or because of lack of reasoning.

This fallacy is committed when one shared trait between two subjects is assumed to show equivalence, especially in order of magnitude, when equivalence is not necessarily the logical result. Just like the one the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Alhaji Malami, compared what he called petty traders to Fulan killer herdsmen parading around with AK47 rifles. False equivalence is a common result when an anecdotal similarity is pointed out as equal, but the claim of equivalence does not bear scrutiny because the similarity is based on over-simplification or ignorance of additional factors, or because of perceived hatred or low mental reasoning.

The Nigerian Attorney General and Minister of Justice, has just shown his high level of ignorance and low reasoning ability, when he compared petty traders to the deadly Fulani herdsmen. And he is in charge of the Nigerian law department. However, one will not be surprised to see or hear such a statement from a supposed lawyer, after all, he is of Fulani extraction.
His fellow Fulanis had played same folly in the past when they proscribed the noble family of the Indigenous people of Biafra (IPOB), calling them terrorists for only carrying flags and placards. This shows how mentally deranged they are. They are devoid of balanced reasoning.

Those that the AGF called petty traders, if at all they are, are contributing immensely to the economy of this contraption called Nigeria, but the so-called herdsmen are only contributing bloodshed, destruction of people's properties and raping.

The petty traders do not move around raping and killing people with AK47, but herdsmen are organized bunch of criminals, moving around Nigeria, raping women, killing and maiming people with reckless abandon. I am just wondering how an AGF would condescend so low to compare people who are terrorists with people that are doing genuine business. But, one needs not to be surprise, that is how those who studied Islamic law reason. And Nigeria is bound to remain in the pain of their idiocy since they are imposed on the people as leaders.
Only the total disintegration of the country will solve this malady.
