It pointed out that while other children across the country celebrated this year’s Children’s Day, the abducted Chibok secondary school girls continue to be in Boko Haram’s slavery as a result of several persons and group who are making political capital and possibly economic gains out of the girls’ unfortunate situation.
The statement by the UK Coordinator of NDMG, Engineer Adeka Onyilo stressed that the Presidency can no longer shy away from ordering a special investigation into what is truly going on in that state, particularly when other states to which the insurgency spread are now back on the way to recovery while Borno state continues to relapse.
“Our recommendation at this point is for the Federal Government to set up a Board of Inquiry into the roles being played by all those that present themselves as the leaders of that state.
“The insurgents have proven that the support they enjoy in the area is at an organisational level and possibly with state dimension.
“To make sure that the terror group is dealt a final blow that will allow the country know peace, anyone or group implicated in sustaining Boko Haram, whether directly or through acts of sabotaging the Federal Government’s efforts must be made to face the law.
“Mr President can no longer allow such compromised persons to continue wielding influence in Borno and environs as their continued support for terrorism could drag the ongoing fight into a stalemate,” the NDMG warned.
