Labour leader faults Borno elders on Boko Haram

The immediate past chairman of the Bayelsa State Council of the Trade Union Congress, TUC, Mr. Chris Adokeme, has condemned the call by the committee of Borno elders and leaders of thought for the withdrawal of the Joint Task Force from the crisis-torn area.

Adokeme, in an interview in Yenagoa, expressed regret that instead of contributing to the resolution of the security challenges, the committee had opted to ensure that the problem continued unabated.

Adokeme said: “When these elders talk about soldiers killing civilians, it will be interesting to know what their response will be if asked what offence or offences those regularly hacked down by the Boko Haram outlaws had committed.”
