No Nigerian Territory Under Boko Haram – APC Claims

The   All Progressives Congress (APC) says no inch of the country’s territory is under the control of Boko Haram.

In a statement, Lanre Issa-Onilu, APC spokesman, said commentaries on activities of Boko Haram, bandits and kidnappers are “assuming a dangerous ethno-religious slant, unfortunately, influenced by insensitive and selfish partisan narratives by shortsighted groups and individuals.”

The spokesman said the trend needs to be checked by all citizens.

“These godless people are attempting to stoke religious sensitivities by pitching Christians and Muslims against one and another through their recent pattern of cowardly attacks,” he said.

“This demonstrates how debased and degraded Boko Haram and those who sponsor it have become. We must not fall for this divisive ploy.

“In our respective spaces, we should understand that these violent extremists are our common enemies, and are blind to religious and political affiliation and socio-economic status.

“Our leaders – religious, political, traditional and all others in positions of influence and authority, must now show leadership and temperance in their utterances and actions. Doing otherwise will be acting the scripts and playing into the hands of these fanatics seeking to divide us and pitch us against each other.

“In 2015, followed by a reelection in 2019, Nigerians voted President Muhammadu Buhari to among others win the war against terrorism and generally secure the country.

“Currently, no inch of Nigeria’s territory is under the control of Boko Haram; bandits, kidnappers and other criminal camps are being cleared with the criminals suffering heavy casualties on a daily basis.”

Issa-Onilu said despite attacks of the insurgents on soft targets, the federal government’s resolve in degrading Boko Haram is not in doubt.

He commiserated with the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and the Catholic church whose members have been recently targeted and killed by the insurgents.

“We must now work collectively and continue to support and cooperate with the President Buhari government and our security services on the frontlines as they work to ensure the safe release of our abducted citizens and rid the remnant of these terrorists from our land,” Issa-Onilu said.
