Elder statesman, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu has known as for a negotiation between the Federal Government and Boko Haram as a method of ending the insecurity and kidnapping within the nation. He mentioned there are indications the sect might discover roots within the south by kidnapping and banditry.
Iwuanyanwu, whereas talking on the safety scenario within the nation in a chat with Saturday Sun yesterday in Owerri expressed fear that if pressing steps are usually not taken, kidnappers would ultimately overrun the nation.
The elder statesman who claimed that kidnapping is one other arm of Boko Haram warned that if a reconciliatory committee just isn’t arrange by the federal authorities, the sect may begin recruiting its members from the South-South, Southwest and Southeast.
According to him, the committee have to be chosen from the native authorities degree, state and the centre, including that members needs to be chosen amongst political and different important stakeholders within the nation. He claimed that the federal authorities just isn’t doing a lot to curtail their excesses, which he mentioned has brought on the upsurge in crime.
“Kidnapping today is no longer a risky business, they have intimidated the Nigeria government in such a way that nobody makes effort to get them, so I believe that if they negotiate with Boko Haram, kidnapping will stop,” Iwuanyanwu acknowledged.
He additional mentioned: “I believe that kidnapping is a business group of Boko Haram, buying of arms has increased kidnapping, I believe they put some of the proceeds of kidnapping in buying arms and the rest used for recruiting young people, if care is not taken they would start recruiting people from South-South, Southwest and Southeast, they are young lads who are looking for jobs”
Iwuanyanwu acknowledged additional, “insecurity in this country is unprecedented, essence of a government is to protect lives and property, but here in Nigeria, for some time we have been facing a very graven insecurity challenges, life in some places means nothing; our country men are being killed everyday and we continue to watch them helplessly.” Take as an illustration, Boko Haram began few years in the past, all people thought it was a quite simple matter, it has continued despite all assurance by the federal authorities, however they’ve by no means informed us why this persons are combating. When the Niger Delta youth have been carrying arms they informed us the explanation and it was solved.”
