Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has called for a drastic decision to be taken against the Boko Haram sect following unending attacks in the North east region.
Pained by the attack in Michika on Wednesday, Nyako declared: “Enough is Enough,” stressing that the Boko Haram crisis is getting out of hand and needs new strategies to tackle it. Madagali in the state was also attacked.
The governor dismissed the state of emergency slammed on Adamawa, Borno and Yobe States as ineffective.
He lambasted the federal government for failing to foil Yobe School’s attack that seemed predictable since school children had previously been murdered that way in the same state.
“There is no excuse whatsoever, we want to know more from the authority. By now, authority should be able to know what is happening. We should be able to know where these arms are manufactured and even the signatures of the weapons. We ought to know who ordered them, who paid for them, how they came into the country. Where they were shipped from, which port in Nigeria when they arrived, who cleared them among others.
‘’President, vice-president, governors and the military they are the only groups that pass check points without being checked, and which of the two groups is conveying those arms to the scene of these actions. We want to know.
“The other aspect is that army withdrew from the checkpoint, before the attack in Yadi–Buni, who ordered the withdrawal? We also have a case where General Shuwa was killed by the so called Boko Haram. There was army unit there but they didn’t respond during the incident; who told them not to respond when Shuwa was being attacked?
“The Air Force base was being raided, there is a unit of army nearby, who gave them order not to response until all the aircraft were destroyed?
“These are questions that needs answers. So either this thing is controlled by unknown fellows, or unknown Boko Haram Strategic commanders in the Defence system or stage-managed.
“We have reached a point where we can come out to tell them our displeasure over the way the situation is escalating,” Nyako said.
