CDHR differs with Amaechi on Boko Haram

BY Emma Amaize

WARRI— THE Campaign for Defence of Human Rights, CDHR, Delta State, has differed with Rivers State governor, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, on his claim that security challenges facing the North and other parts of the country were caused by poverty.

The group, in a statement by its state chairman, Mr. Benefit Orugbo, said: “We stand to reason that the Boko Haram insurgency has little or nothing do with poverty. If same was borne out of hunger, they would have enhanced the intention of Mr. President to grant them amnesty, wherein like the earlier one granted Niger Delta militants, they would be entitled to monthly stipends to ameliorate their sufferings, if any.”
