Publicly Condemn Boko Haram If You Are Not Behind It, Clark Dares IBB/Buhari
Elder statesman and prominent leader, Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark, yesterday, declared that some highly placed individuals from the Northern part of the country were behind the increasing spate of violence in Nigeria to actualize their vow of “making the nation ungovernable for President Jonathan.”
It will be recalled that though Buhari lives in Kaduna, which has serially been the subject of Boko Haram attacks, he has never publicly categorically condemned them rather he has blamed the Federal Government for Boko Haram saying that the FG is behind Boko Haram. Instead of condemning Boko Haram, Buhari has been accused of fanning the embers of terrorism by inciting comments he has made of recent.l for example, he said two months ago that if the 2015 elections were rigged as he alleged the 2011 elections were, "both the dog and the baboon will be soaked on blood". The second weekend after he made that comment, Boko Haram attacked 3 churches in Kaduna, the highest series of attacks in Kaduna by the terrorist Islamic sect ever.
Speaking as a guest lecturer at the “2nd State of the Federation Lecture” organized by the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, NIALS, Clark therefore challenged two former heads of state, Generals Ibrahim Babangida and Muhammadu Buhari, to establish their innocence by publicly condemning activities of the Boko Haram Islamic sect.
The lecture was chaired by former Minister of Information, Professor Jerry Gana.
