Northern elders threaten to mobilise against APC over insecurity
Coalition of Northern Elders for Peace and Development (CNEPD) has cried out in alarm that the northern part of the country is under siege by Boko Haram, bandits and kidnappers, whose criminal activities have grounded educational, economic and socio-political activities in the region.
The elders, who claimed the ugly situation is being underreported by media, urged President Muhammadu Buhari to device new approach to restoring peace in the troubled area. They reiterated their call on Buhari to urgently sack the service chiefs and totally restructure the nation’s security architecture.
According to the elders, it would take the region over 100 years to recover from destruction, killings and trauma associated with the insecurity in the region if the development is not brought under total control now.
