The founder of the Oodua’s Peoples Congress, Dr. Frederick Fasheun, has called on President Buhari to remove the military officers in charge of the Boko Haram campaign.
While addressing journalists in Lagos, he spoke of how Boko Haram is still going about their business of bombing and kidnapping defenseless citizen. According to him, such is enough reason for those in charge of security to be removed.
“The war of attrition unleashed by Boko Haram against defenceless citizens throughout the country continues unabated, nullifying Buhari’s campaign promise to end insurgency immediately after he took power. But the reality indicates that Boko Haram inflicts as many damages as before, with bombings, abductions and suicide squads going unabated”.
President Buhari should sack military officers currently in charge of the Boko Haram campaign and mandate the defence team to end Boko Haram insurgency within six months. We seize this opportunity to demand the release of Leah Sharibu, the Chibok girls and other hostages in Boko Haram captivity. Every day they spend in captivity is a disgrace to this democracy.”
Dr. Frederick Fasheun also said the campaign against the insurgents ought to have ended a long time ago but still persists due to colluding officers who are gaining from it.
“Reports from soldiers and officers on the field indicated that Boko Haram could be wiped out easily but for colluding military commanders who want the campaign prolonged for selfish commercial benefits,”
