NIGER State Governor, Dr Muazu Babangida Aliyu, yesterday, challenged the Federal Government to expose the sponsors of  Islamic extremists, Boko Haram. He spoke when he received, in audience, the Minister of State for Works, Ambassador Bashir Yuguda, in Minna, Niger State.

Aliyu said it was worrisome that the Federal Government had not been able to unmask sponsors of the violent sect five years after their destructive activities, but that with the assistance of global experts stepping into the crisis, the Federal Government should know those behind the sect and should expose them, accordingly.

His words, “my argument has always been that after arresting so many members of Boko Haram for this long, what is making it difficult for us to know who are their sponsors, who are the collaborators, who are the people behind it. We could not have spent four years or five years fighting a group, that we have not been able to crush. And whatever we do, we must realize that there is need for peace for any growth in gross domestic product.”
