Insecurity: CSO backs Buhari’s threat to crush separatist groups

By Frank Ikpefan, Abuja

A civil society, Vanguard for Peace and National Development has thrown its weights behind President Muhammadu Buhari’s pledge to crush separatists groups in the country.

In a statement by its Executive Director, Ahmed Tijani, the CSO also asked President Buhari to probe the “unholy alliances between some highly placed politicians with managers of the various security outfits in the country.”

The group argued that president Buhari’s zero tolerance for the activities of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) speaks volumes of his resolve to ensure Nigeria remained an indivisible entity.

It particularly wondered why heads of security agents in the country have failed to hold the Senate Chief Whip, Enyinnaya Abaribe accountable for standing surety for the leader of IPOB, Mr. Nnamdi Kanu who jumped bail.

The group maintained that it has become imperative following speculations in high quarters concerning true identities of some high-ranking security officers and alliances with politicians.

“As a group of patriots, we cannot afford to keep mute when these kinds of issues come up. Considering the state of our security, we cannot afford to ignore issues as genuine as true identities of our security personnel as well as unholy alliances of some political actors who have not demonstrated concern in finding lasting solutions to the security challenges faces by the country,” the group said in the statement.

It noted that anything built on falsehood does not stand the taste of time and urged the President to ensure that truth is upheld amongst security agencies.
