Chuks Ibegbu, former deputy publicity Secretary, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has mentioned that Boko Haram terrorists, armed bandits who perform kidnapping for ransom and different types of crimes, are being sponsored by Northern elders.
In response to him, the northern elders he didn’t title, have been sponsoring the prison actions to make Nigeria ungovernable.
Ibegbu, who’s the chairman of board of trustees of the World Igbo Individuals’s Meeting, WIPAS, mentioned that the sponsors proceed to profit from ransoms being paid by victims and from different unlawful companies as prison actions develop quickly within the nation.
In response to him, President Muhammadu Buhari had sympathy for these Northern elders earlier than changing into President of the nation, including that for that reason, he (Buhari) doesn’t need to clamp down on them.
In an announcement he signed and made out there to reporters on Tuesday, he sternly warned the federal government and Northern leaders in opposition to negotiating with bandits who now run riot within the North, as doing so will embolden them to do worse issues.
“Some Northern leaders are sponsoring kidnapping and banditry within the North to make Nigeria ungovernable.
“The warmth is now on the president and he’s pissed off over the matter.
“Sure, throughout the Jonathan time, Buhari had sympathy for these plotting to make Nigeria ungovernable however he didn’t know that the wind sown then will now flip right into a whirlwind and hang-out them,” he added within the assertion.
