Briefing journalist in Bauchi yesterday, September 8, the Secretary of the forum, Professor Ango Abdullahi said the claims by Davis was very serious and Jonathan owes Nigerians the duty to look into the allegations, ThisDay reports.

Lambasting President Jonathan over his silence, the northern elders said: “The silence of the presidency on this matter is likely to be construed as full acceptance of all the disturbing allegations made by Davis with the rapid territorial gains in vast areas of Nigerian soil, and what appears as imminent fall of key cities and towns to the insurgents.”

The northern elders are expecting a thorough investigation into the matter, as well prosecution of persons involved aiding Boko Haram in their deadly activities.

The forum also called on Jonathan to immediately overhaul the leadership of the military to arrest the barbaric killings of innocent citizens and also not to concede any territory currently under the grip of the insurgents.

They urged Nigerians to support a re-organised and better equipped military to defend the country including far-reaching measures to enable Jonathan win the war against terrorism in no distant time.

Tinubu finally speaks on Lekki shooting, tells Buhari to find culprits

Former Governor of Lagos state and the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has commented on the Lekki toll gate shooting that left many dead and several others injured.

The Lagos politician who was interviewed via telephone by a Channels TV reporter, Olu Philips, shared his shock over the shooting and also revealed that he is ready to complain to the highest authorities.

Contrary to people’s predictions, Tinubu however denied ordering the shooting and also stated that he can only control his security guard. He again reiterated that he will never be part of any group that uses live ammunition against protesters.

Insisting that he has always been an activist, the APC Chieftain expressed sympathy for the victims of the incident and advised the federal government to “fish out whoever gave the order (for the shooting) and put them on trial”.

He then recalled how he was falsely accused of being behind #EndSARS protests. Tinubu who noted that he doesn’t believe that Buhari ordered the shooting, appealed for calm over the incident. He also denied having a stake in the Lekki toll gate or suffering a loss due to the continous blockage of the area by #EndSARS protesters.

He said,

“It is early hours of the morning, there’s no way I can talk to the authorities or wake them up now. I have tried to reach the NSA, I have tried to reach the head of the army.

“You don’t call the president at this hour, but I strongly condemn the act. There are other means of settling or dispersing protest. Why would they use live bullets? There are rubber bullets.

“I am not even sure yet they are Nigerian army, I am not sure how well the uniforms of the army are controlled. But that is not as critical as the bloodshed that has occurred.

“We have lost our sleep, we have lost our peace of mind, (and) we just have to deal with it.”
