ABUJA—THE Northern Alternative Forum, NAF, has taken a swipe at the Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, on his recent outburst on CNN against the security operation in the North East and blame on the federal government for the abduction of school girls in the State owned Secondary School, Chibok.

NAF which spoke at a press briefing by its chairman, Alhaji Gidado Ibrahim, accused the governor of making the ongoing military operation in the North East a subject of self-exoneration of responsibility in the crisis of the abducted girls, rather than blaming his government for its failure to protect them, even after promising to offer them protection on the advice from the Minister of Education and WAEC to relocate them.

The group however, urged the governor to swallow his pride and take the responsibility for the emergence of Boko Haram and their damages, which have now turned the state and the region into a theatre of war.
