Go after Boko Haram sponsors, NLC tells FG

The Nigeria Labour Congress has urged the Federal Government to reopen investigation into the cases of people indicted for sponsoring the Boko Haram sect in the country.

The President of the NLC, Mr. Ayuba Wabba, said in a statement on Sunday that the liberty enjoyed by those sponsoring terror gangs was a grave danger to the country.

Wabba advised security forces to be resolute in the ongoing campaign against the insurgents and not to be demoralised by the multiple bomb attacks on Abuja.

He urged the security forces, who were better equipped with sophisticated equipment, to take up the attacks as a challenge.
The NLC boss added, “For us at the Nigeria Labour Congress, we believe this latest attacks should not weaken the morale of the forces involved in the battle against terrorism in our country, rather it should reinvigorate their fighting spirits and be seen by government as a challenge to arm our forces with more sophisticated and superior weapons both for intelligence gathering and combat.

“Beyond this, we urge our government to order the immediate re-investigation, arrest and prosecution of all those previously indicted of sponsoring terror gangs, especially Boko Haram and other such violent groups in any part of the country.

“The freedom of those who sponsor deadly violence puts the entire country on timed-bombs that can explode at will. No matter how highly placed, whoever has been indicted, should immediately be apprehended and re-investigated now.”

Wabba said the multiple bomb attacks on the FCT by the insurgents should be condemned by all Nigerians.

He added that the attacks were perpetrated by the terrorists with the intent to divert attention from the successes recorded against them by the security forces.

The Labour leader believed that the attacks carried out at Kuje along the Abuja International Airport and Nyanya, were devised to announce the Boko Haram’s presence to the world and to convey the message that Nigeria was unsafe.
