LAGOS — A Lagos-based group, United Non-Indigenes Development Association, has said that Boko Haram is a product of some mischief makers in the Northern part of the country who are bent on frustrating President Goodluck Jonathan out of office.
The group, therefore called on Nigerians to prevail on the President to muster enough strength and political will to face the problem headlong no matter whose ox is gored.
Addressing newsmen at the end of its second monthly meeting in Lagos, its Board of Trustees, BOT, chairman and Vice President S-South, Chief Williams Ayameh and Elder David Emeneh respectively lamented that Boko Haram had infiltrated the government of President Jonathan, because according to them, “the timing and bombings by the insurgency suggest that there are insiders in the government who are working with them.
They described the activities of the insurgency as frightening and constitute a great threat on the existence of the country, warning that if the trend remained unabated, President Jonathan may be last President of Nigeria.
On the abduction of Chibok schoolgirls in Borno State, the group urged the Federal Government to seal-off the borders and hold the governors, police commissioners, GOC, Emirs and community leaders of any state responsible and accountable where there are killings and attacks by the Boko Haram sect.
According to them, “Nigeria does not have the history of suicide bombing, it is by imported aliens who came through our porous borders. Therefore, Nigeria should look inward to cure the cancer called Boko Haram so that the prediction of the United States of America that Nigeria will disintegrate in 2015 does not become a reality, otherwise, Jonathan may be the last president of this country.”
On the United Non-Indigenes Development Association, they opined that the “group is not for politics, but for the unity of Nigeria. We want to make sure that Nigerians are united to speak with one voice. This is the goal of the association”
