Hand over Sheriff, Ihejirika to ICC, APC tells Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan

Nigeria’s main opposition party, All Progressives Congress, APC, has demanded the immediate trial, by the International Criminal Court, of two former Nigerian officials named by a government-appointed negotiator as the sponsors of the extremist Boko Haram sect.

At a press conference Tuesday, the APC called on President Goodluck Jonathan to hand over former governor of Borno state, Ali Modu Sheriff, and former Chief of Army Staff, Azubuike Ihejirika, to the International Criminal Court, ICC, to face trial over their alleged sponsorship of the group.

The National Chairman of APC, John Oyegun, who spoke at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja, said his party expects the president to “summon courage” and “do the right thing”.

“Now that the cat has been let out of the bag and the real sponsors of Boko Haram have been exposed, we hope President Jonathan will summon the courage to do the right thing: Hand over the identified Boko Haram sponsors to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for investigation and prosecution,” Mr. Oyegun said.

“There is no doubt that Boko Haram has committed crimes against humanity in its scorched-earth campaign against unharmed citizens, and the most appropriate body to investigate and try the sect’s sponsors is the ICC.

“According to Article 17 of the Rome Statute that set up the ICC, and to which Nigeria is signatory, the ICC is a court of last resort, expected to exercise its jurisdiction only if states themselves are unwilling or unable genuinely to investigate and prosecute international crimes,” Mr. Oyegun said.

An Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis, appointed by the Nigerian government to help rescue more than 200 schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram, has accused the former army chief and former governor as the major sponsors of the deadly sect.

Messrs Sheriff and Ihejirika have denied the allegation.

    There is limit to provocation. Can anybody in his rightl sense discern how possible it is for Ihejirika, a Christian Igbo man to sponsor a sect that is senseless in their agenda. I understand that the same man mentioned a high ranking CBN officer that is an uncle to three members of the sect arrested over the insurgency. Yet the so called party failed to mention that the CBN officer should be handed over to ICC. Meanwhile, a Chieftain of the so called party had earlier accused the same Ihejirika of genocide against his people for the massacre the insurgent and the Chieftain went ahead to threaten taking Ihejirika to the same ICC. Igbos are watching closely.

        Ali Modu Sheriff: Me And Boko Haram.

        **I was the one that made the law prohibiting Boko Haram in Borno.
        **I was the first victim of Boko Haram in Borno State. In their first attack, they killed my brother, the same father and mother with me.

        The Former Borno State Governor, Ali Modu Sheriff who was recently named to be among Boko Haram major sponsors and financier has voiced out his opinion and what he knows about the dreaded sect, he also denies the allegation levied against him by the Australian negotiator who indicted him along with former retired Army chief, Ikejirika as BH sponsors.

        Sheriff said records of his activities as governor of Borno State showed that he was against the sect, adding that anybody who links him with Boko Haram must be insane.

        His words: “The Boko Haram war as we know it today, started in 2002 in Yobe State. The first attack of Boko Haram was in 2002 in Kanama, from there they ran to Borno State. And in 2002, where was I? I wasn’t a governor. There was a sitting governor in Borno State, and there was Boko Haram. They ran away from Kanama and moved to Gwoza hill! UNA APC PEOPLE HEAR

        “But come to think of it, who is Mohammed Yusuf ( first leader of the group)? Yusuf had been in Maiduguri, doing his preaching and later taken to court by the Federal Government, and prosecuted in Abuja, ever before I became a governor. And who was the first casualty of Boko Haram in Borno State? It is me.

      General Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Federal Government to stop the clampdown of Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed.

      Buhari who spoke on Sunday on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week MONITORED said accused the government of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants get special treatment.

      The former dictator said that unlike the special treatment given to the Niger Delta militants by the federal government, the Boko Haram members were being killed and their houses demolished by government.

      While accusing President Jonathan of failing from the beginning to address the SECURITY situation in the country, Buhari said he has never been in support of the state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa state.

      According to Buhari “what is responsible for the security situation in the country is caused by the activities of Niger Delta militants. Every Nigerian that is familiar with what is happening knows this. The Niger Delta militants started it all.

      “What happened is that the governors of the Niger Delta region at that time wanted to WIN their elections. So they recruited the youths and gave them guns and bullets and used them against their opponents to win elections by force.

      “After the elections were over, they asked the boys to return the guns; the boys refused to return the guns. Because of that, the allowance that was being given to the youths by the governors during that time was stopped.

        (The fraudulent Land decree, the corrupt petroleum act and
        crooked Waterways act instituted in the fraudulent Nigerian Constitution
        ensured that the lands, mineral resources and the Waterways of the real owners
        are transfered to a fictitious entity called Nigerian Government.

        (Under the guise of Nigerian government, a bunch of Thugs

        leaving the real owners wallowing in abject poverty and gargantuan
        wretchedness, in the midst of immense oil and gas pollution.

        These fraudulent decrees in the Nigerian Constitution are what

        1976, the Federal Government of Nigeria bought Exxon’s interest in the company
        and rebranded it as Unipetrol Nigeria Limited, which led to its transformation

            The first casualty was me. Then, they killed my cousin. They killed my candidate for governorship; they killed my party chairman. Two of them were direct relations of mine. Why did they do that? Because I made a law prohibiting Boko Haram in the domain of Borno State.

            “The law said anybody practising or associated with what Boko Haram was doing, was banned by law from so doing, and if caught, will be prosecuted and jailed for 25 years”.

            His words: “The man that purportedly gave the interview said he was an Australian, who said he came to Nigeria, and spoke to Boko Haram. I thought that really, if he is a professional mediator or negotiator, or whatever he calls himself, his report would have been given to the security agencies of Nigeria.
            That is number one. Number two, also, if at all he spoke to Boko Haram, before making his views public, he should have known that I have a right of reply.

      Mr Truth the ICC is very good at reading and understanding the ‘common sense and reasoning’ you are talking about. All these questions of yours will be asked by the judges at the ICC. And remember that whether or not Ihejirika is the sponsor he still has a case to answer at the ICC. He must answer why in his capacity and with all the information he had about El-Rufa’i being a commander of Boko Haram but chose to keep quite and allow the commander to continue commanding. Do you know what abatement and conspiracy mean in law? Please and ask!!!

    • Wähala

      Höly Wähala noted with his, “Anarchy Agenda” comments 3yrs ago (on SR) that BH is organized crime aimed at weakening the North politically, economically and socially… to cause enough mayhem to warrant the cancellation of elections in affected areas to the benefit of this PDP-led evil Govt. of Dr. Dumbo. What kind of ambition would warrant the slaughter of 59 sleeping school boys for political capital? Who would kidnap 300 school girls and turn deaf ears to international outrage? Who would sanction the bombing of prayer grounds, churches, parks and malls for no sane reason? The insurgency was a benign tumor when Dumbo took over, but now it has become cancerous and out of control. Those identified as BH-sponsors must be arrested and forwarded to the ICC for legal actions… the bubble has burst! The PDP is the Janjaweed Party!!

    QUESTIONS FOR PREMIUM TIMES

    Does Premium Times notice the obvious truth that APC party did not call for the arrest for investigation of the real linchpin in this Boko Haram sponsorship narrative – Sanusi Lamido Sanusi – and; does Premium Times agree that the fulcrum of Boko Haram financing – Sanusi Lamido Sanusi – should be partisanly overlooked? Does this stance show up APC as a responsible party that can be entrusted with impartial application of Nigerian law? And again, is this deliberate suppression of evidence implicating Sanusi Lamido Sanusi in Boko Haram financing acceptable to Premium Times Editorial Board? If not, why was this report intentionally written to silence editorial comment on the centrally accused financier of Boko Haram?

    • the truth

      didnt u know all this while premium times is sponsored by apc, when was the last time u ever heard premium times report any pdp comments or olisah metuh, but u always see high patronage for lai mohammed and john oyegun, any apc cough is written with bias, no objectivity in their reporting, pure bias

      • Idy

        The truth is bitter, like it or notn APC won’t stop fighting for a good cause to change this country in a better one!!! Be wise!

          u are swimming in ajegunle bridge with that school of thought, the same former pdp members that ran to apc for power and now they are the messiah’s. think for once.who is fighting for a good cause, tinubu,timipri sylva, atiku, buhari, lai mohammed. i pity for you

      • tonireal

        There is nothing wrong with Premium Times reporting this way with a bias for a party. Go to Fox news in the United State. They will always report anything with a slant in favour of the Republicans. But you have to look at the substance and the essence of it. I believe the matter at hand is weighty enough to have some investigation of Ihejirika. Does he have vast billions he cannot account for? How are his communications, etc. I dont believe anyone here wants Boko Haram covered up,

    • Aminu M

      Hypocrite indeed!,what will have been your reaction,assuming Mr Davies had named Tinubu or El Rufai or GMBH as sponsors of Boko Haram and not Gen Ihejirika/sheriff? Will you still maintain your position on SLS .You must be an accomplices to all the atrocities under watchful eyes of Dumbo Ebola Jonaharam.Shame on you and all the commentators on this forum that maintain double standard and reason irrational.We will definitely drag the duo of Ihejirika and Sheriff and other devils conniving to destroy the North and turn back to blame it on the so called Boko Haram for Political purposes.

  • arise_9ja

    Boko Haram is the armed wing of APC, John Oyegun stop all your jargons. As sure as the night follows the day, APC will lose in Oyegun’s state so let him keep playing to the gallery. Sheriff was in APC all this while amd nobody called for his arrest until he ran into the PDp to avoid arrest (as allaeged by Dr. Davis) now APC has the audacity to call for his arrest. Why didnt they call for Sheriff’s arrest when he almost slapped Tinubu at an exco meeting? These hypocrites/politicians will not drag us into hell with them…..the same politicians argued that Boko Haram should not be banned.

    • SB

      Your argument is fluid. The man sheriff should be arrested with others. The APC is right to demand for his arrest. He has to answer for his crimes.

      • the truth

        this shows your reasoning prowess, this same sheriff was in apc for years the moment he decamped he should be arrested, the moment he is against tinubu he should be arrested.dont get me wrong any body who supports boko haram needs to pay the price, but the body language of apc shows they are the main funders of boko haram

      Boko haram is the armed wing of PDP. Nigerians will not be deceived by your comment we know the true sponsors of boko haram they are in the PDP.Stop misguiding the public.

    • thewatcher

      When did APC argue that Boko Haram should not be banned??…there’s nothing you pdp supporters won’t come up with…It’s so disappointing. APC was never comfortable with Ali Modu Sheriff in their ranks, the alleged mole from PDP.

      Besides this is more than just APC or PDP, it’s a matter of national security, stop playing party politics with a matter as dire as this.

      The simple truth remains that these men; Ihejirika and Ali Modu Sheriff should be arrested and interrogated to confirm or in the off chance, dispute these claims. It’s not the first time that allegations are being leveled against them and it’s high time they were brought to book on this boko haram issue.

    When SAS was in APC, he was not at all due for
    arrest. Now that he has left APC, he can now be arrested. Gen. Ihejirika
    crime is that he killed so many APC foot soldiers QED. You must never be satisfied with losing. You must get
    angry, terribly angry, about losing. That what APC stands for. But the mark of
    the good loser is that he takes his anger out on himself and not his
    victorious opponents or on his teammates. Whenever men take the law
    into their own hands, the loser is the law. And when the law loses, freedom
    languishes. The threat posed by APC isn’t just janjaweed ideology – it’s a full-blown
    assault on the Nigerian dream. Where’s the incentive to play fair and do well,
    when what we see rewarded at the highest levels of society is failure,
    stupidity, incompetence and meanness? If this is what winning the next
    Presidency in our system looks like, who doesn’t want to be a loser?

    • thewatcher

      Why and why must you make this a battle between parties??

      A neutral man, an Australian appointed by the President of our country to negotiate with this boko haram sect, made these findings and courageously shared them with everyone despite the implications.

      All Nigerians should ideally call for the arrest and trial of these suspects, the funniest part is that this is not the first time these man are being accused of being Boko Haram sponsors. It’s just sad that instead of Nigerians like you to focus on the matter at hand; which is how we can get these men to own up and reveal more about this boko haram crisis, you are busy attacking the opposition party.

      Wake up and realize that before you are a pdp member, you are a citizen of the federal republic of Nigeria.

    The manner of response and agitation by APC and its insignificant Oyegun, smacks of latent mischief at desperate cover up. Why has APC not pursued past leads too numerous to mention? Why has it not demanded to know the truth behind the bunkers in Kano? Na Ihejirka dey behind those bunkers?

    Why is APC not interested in the CBN official who just retired to the throne? …the one who facilitates funds for the terrorists. Now we know why the Kano state governor kept on arranging mass marriages for the widows of terrorists and others…We shall see where it will lead to…

    I demand my Niger Delta Republic. The parasites in this union are the vampires and destroyers. Why continue to condone them? Secession referendum? Yes! The fierce urgency of NOW!

  • Mazi

    From the onset of these insurgencies, GEJ was not ready to halt their activities. The first excuse they gave was that it was Northern Elders that are sponsoring BH, then they move the buck passing to APC that was formed last year, and now Shetimma and Ihejirika.

    I still maintain my stand that, ‘IT IS ONLY A WEAK LEADERSHIP THAT WILL ALLOW AN OPPOSITION PARTY TO SPONSOR TERRORIST ACT WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING’. If you have watched the movie 24 (Jack Bauer) from season 1 to season 9, only one thing is consistent – They did not highlight a season or a scene where opposition is sponsoring Terrorist act. Most terrorist act is aided by people within the Government for their selfish ends (season 7 of 24 highlights it). They have first hand information of military plans and attack. An Igbo adage says ‘Obodo Adighi mma Bu uru Ndi Nze’ (when their is problem in the land, it is mostly to the benefit of King’s Cabinet – NZE’s). The earlier GEJ look within for the sponsor of BH the better. For a very long time, GEJ had been looking outside (Opposition) and still no concrete evidence that they are sponsoring terrorist, I think is high-time GEJ looked inwards or within his cabinets for the sponsors and benefactors of BH. No sane Father that has the interest of his children at heart will fold his hands and watch another man thwart his plans of providing for dear children. No sane father will tell the children ‘Olu, Musa and Obi, I wanted to provide this and that for you, but Mr. Ekwensu did not want me to do it’. A sane father will swim oceans, fight and be proactive to provide for his children.
    GEJ, you are our father, prove them wrong and act like a true father, stop acting like a weak mother.

    • the truth

      much respect mazi. your eloquence in articulating your point without smear words or foul languages is complemented.look at it this way if jonathan brings out evidence to prove buhari or tinubu is sponsoring boko haram, guess who would cry to premium times and cry persecution from fg? remember when the election was peaceful and our security forces were used for this, apc ran to media houses claiming persecution, an election they won. dont take jonathan’s calmness and pain staking investigation for weakness and cluelessness, with time the real sponsors would be exposed. my personal take on this is that apc bore boko haram to score cheap political points now it is out of their control. stay blessed sir

    There is a proverb that says that when we are crying we can still see. It doesn’t matter who is named as sponsor of Boko Haram, one thing that is clear is that a party as an entity are not responsible for the acts of a few of its members. Let us face the reality, we have different security agencies in the country especially the ones that deal with intelligence gathering . Do they ever have information on would be sponsors, if the answer is in the affirmative, have they ever be investigated. If the answer is yes, can’t they be prosecuted. Why should a government of a country be afraid to prosecute its citizen that runs foul of the law. Until people can be held responsible and be accountable of their actions, that peace would reign in this country.

  • Tugbi

    Lets hope the President will summon courage to invesstigate thesse two people what is obvious is that someone Highly connected Military General like Ijerika and politician like Sherif are surely aiding Boko Harram no wonder the US govt says Nig Soldiers aare not cooperating for them to track the terrorist,so Ijerika is the mole. The US also says the funding of Boko Harram is from Nigeria and say there is connection btw Niger Delta Militant and boko Harram. What other evidence do we need?

  • rawsilkysmooth

    This is so dense. The desperation of Oyegun and his colleagues in accusing the PDP of sponsoring the insurgents or should I say “to get one back on PDP” gives rise to this opprobrium. APC are always hasty in action without thinking first causing themselves so much embarrassment. The ICC consists of erudite individuals who play by the rules and would in no infantile way try individuals simply by word of mouth bereft of overwhelming evidence. This whole thing is absolute balderdash!!!

    • Wähala

      Not to worry, the UNHRC, Amnesty International and others are conducting war crimes investigations that have accused both the insurgents and Nigerians Govt (JTF) of senseless killings and war crimes… now, guess what that means?

    TERROR SUSPECTS IN NIGERIA AND THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

    I am baffled that no commentator here raised a most crucial point to put this matter in perspective.
    The disclosure by the Australian – Stephen Davis – is actually not new to the Nigerian government.
    Since January, the Department of State Security has had similar intelligence report on terror conspiracy.
    The State Security took proactive step a month later by serving investigation notice on Sanusi Lamido Sanusi.

    What happened thereafter? Sanusi Lamido Sanusi rushed to a High Court and procured a venal injunction.
    The Judge ordered that the State Security is barred from ever investigating Sanusi Lamido Sanusi for terrorism.
    In fact, the highly ridiculous Judge went further and ordered State Security to pay damages to Sanusi Lamido.
    Why? Simply because the State Security attempted to investigate Sanusi Lamido Sanusi – and, that’s an offence!

    Now the case is at the Appeal Court and suffering interminable delay as usual in Nigeria’s court of flaws.
    That is the real news to me, to be candid. Surprising that Nigerian journalists are not miffed by it all.
    I can’t imagine a federal court here in the United States stopping FBI investigations of a terrorist suspect.
    Or for that matter imagine that a terror suspect will be awarded 50 million dollars simply for being summoned.

    • Alberto

      @ Uncle Garry,

      Thank you O. May your tribe increase. Truth has been the first casualty in Nigeria’s fake democracy –
      as thievery became the major preoccupation of Nigeria’s government officials across the 36 states.
      In that context, i will not deny Nigerian journalists the liberty of bias against PDP which is in power.
      PDP must take responsibility for the decline and fall of Nigeria. There can be no question on that point.
      What is wrong is to then hold the rival APC party immune and blameless. That’s a false stance to take.
      Nigerian journalists lost their marbles by falsely making APC look good for doing the same PDP evils.

      Uncle Gerry, you’re insane!
      The court stopped a discreet government body, the FRCN, from investigating Sanusi bcos they lack territorial rights to do so. As per the CBN official crucial to the funding of Boko Haram, Dr. Davis implies the man is still on the job and has three grown sons suspected in playing key roles in the Nyanya Park bombings. Stop diverting attention and confusing the gullible. The most surprising BH-kingpin Dr. Davis mentioned is Gen. Ihejirika, face the truth. That Aba thug was responsible for the bombing of Ndigbo in Mandalla on Easter Sunday; in Jos, Kano motor park, Abuja Mall… and don’t forget the 500 Boko Haram suspects caught in Abia State, his home state. Not to make excuses for Sanusi or anyone else, I say, arrest all know BH kingpins, sponsors and supporters let’s see if it’s Aboki or Southerners murdering innocent Nigerians for political capital. Dumbo and ND militants are behind the mayhem, take it from me… the PDP is the Janjaweed Party!

  • Gbo_lee

    The die is cast. How Jonathan reacts to this weighty allegations by someone he employed will go a long way in showing how dedicated this government is towards solving this Boko Haram conundrum. So far,it is not encouraging at all

    We know who Premium Times are working for. They can continue to block some innocent commentators from this forum but surely they can never block the truth. How can a sane person believe the trash this shameless Australia negotiator said. Do u expect Boko Haram to expose their sponsors? Hell no!!! These two individuals mentioned by boko haram are the greatest enemies and obstacles of these sects, hence their names were mentioned to divert attention from the real sponsors and also punish them. No matter what APC try to do, the whole world know they are the real sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria. Ali module Sheriff was in APC but was not labelled a sponsor but immediately he defected to PDP, he was named one. Maybe Ali Modu Sheriff has been the one giving information to the military for the onslaught on boko haram because hour knows them more than anybody else. He used them as election thugs but dumped them afterwards which resulted in the emergency of boko haram. No wonder Boko haram was calling for the arrest of Ali Modu Sheriff as one of the conditions for their cease fire. Why would they want one of their major sponsors to be arrested by the security operative if at all he is one of their sponsors? And ihejirika’s crime??…because he killed and arrested thousands of boko haram commanders and fighters, and this definitely didn’t go down well with APC and boko haram themselves. why is APC not talking about the CBN senior official who helps in transferring money through CBN for boko haram? APC and the real boko haram sponsors surely know that the former COAS has credible information about the real sponsors of Boko haram, hence they (APC & Boko Haram) quickly planned to rubbish him before the whole world and especially the President. Like I earlier said, Nigerians know the real sponsors of terrorism in this country, it’s just a matter of time before they are all cut down by the arms of the law!!

      You’re the biggest clown on earth for commenting on Premium Times yet, has nothing sensible to contribute after castigating them erroneously. You ought to be sorry for whoever paid for your limited education because you lack analytical skills necessary to contribute sensibly on a topic of national interest. Your logic is warped with lies and silly sentimental jargon. The PDP and Olisa Metuh stopped calling the APC “Janjaweed Party” after Ali Modu Sheriff re-defected to his evil family and you know that much. Why was the airport which was closed to even pilgrims suddenly re-opened for Sheriff if not for his close contacts to Dumbo moron? Dr. Davis is an internationally respected clergy and hostage negotiator trusted by Dumbo to talk with the Boko Haram, he did not make wild accusations because he knows the implications. It is out of frustration that he turned against his employers after realizing it is this Govt’s policy to annihilate a certain part of the country for political capital. Gen. Ihejirika and Ali Sheriff are murderous criminals who must pay the price for cutting off the throats of sleeping school children, bombing Ndigbo in churches on Xmas and Easter Days, bombing them in parks, malls and virtually everywhere else. No wonder 500 Boko Haram suspects were arrested in Abia State, his home state. Biko, Go-siddon! I’m more Igbo than Joe Igbokwe and Isay, Ihejirika must be arrested for his crimes against humanity, the man is psychopath… Per Sheriff, same as Ihejirika, over to ICC! Per CBN: Dr. Davis implied that the man has three grown sons involved in the Nyanya bombings and is stillon thejob, so, forget Sanusi, the Emir is clean as a whistle! PDP is Boko Haram and their Oga@theTop is Dr. Dumbo… shikena!

      • rawsilkysmooth

        Does not add up one bit. Very shallow and vague. Not a shred of evidence or fact. Not even intellectually challenging. Showing disrespect to Nigerians by taking them for a ride.

        • Wähala

          Simply put, arrest all known BH sponsors and the APC will not only be vindicated, you will see that Emir Sanusi is not your CBN man and the kidnapping of Chibok girls was orchestrated by this Dumbo Govt… that’s why our Govt. are against freedom for the girls, and the reason their negotiator has turned against them… broken down enough for a minion mind like you?

  • John green

    The last time I checked, it’s the PDP administration that is holding the power at the centre and should take the blame for any fault that happens in the country, why?? Because if anything happens to any family, the first suspect/faults will be casted to the head of the family, which is the father, the responsiblity of the fathers go a long way to prove that it’s a maturity and responsive minds who marry, when the presidents knows that he couldn’t take the heat neither can he handle the country because of his conceived minds/ideas, did anybody forced him to be there?? Sentiments aside, when a man fails, he takes the blame aside the reasons. So, GEJ can’t handle a minor company like some rich nigerians do?? Because all his life wil be based on excuses from power epileptic, untrust workers or negligence from subordinate. He’s just not the best for the country at this time, let us try the options we have and let him loose in 2015

    After Boko Haram, no Norther political or religious leader would dream again of raising a terrorist group for the purpose of acquiring power at the centre – the Federal Government. This strategy has simply misfired with very grave, tragic and bloody consequences. The beast a man bred for his enemy has turned around wanting to devour him..

  • Wise Head

    I have said before, and wish to say it again! If the Northern political and (Islamic) religious elite want to end Boko Haram, it will end tomorrow! They will, for instance, reveal where Abubakar Shekau is hiding, because, I doubt, if the Shekau fellow has ever slept in Sambisa Forest for once.. That is, if he ever goes there. He must be hiding in the luxury of one mansion in the North East or even outside the North East and surrounded by dainties and tender, beautiful women and swimming in boundless pleasure, while the idiots he has callously brainwashed are blowing themselves up in the hoping of getting 72 virgins! The Northern political elite cannot swear that they do no know where the Chibok girls are being kept. They should tell themselves that terrorism as political tool is no longer working; it has instead become counter-productive, and painting them and their religion in very bad light, which they would never be able to remedy. Who knows who the next victim may be? When you unleash a bloody-thirsty, barbaric creature like Shekau, no one knows who might fall into his net!!

  • john micheals

    This Australian journalist looks a scam, too many scanty information on here. He did not give any proof of the allegations, just stirred hate among people.

    • rawsilkysmooth

      That’s exactly what he was paid to do.

    • ola

      My brother Dr Davis is real. Ask his profile from Oga Jona. The sole appointer. He will tell you more about the guy. Arise!

  • Thecreed

    The pdpigs are the main sponsors and benefactors of the Boko Haram crisis all in a bid to hold on to power by all means, even when it hasn’t positively affected the lives of the vast majority of the people they claim to govern. In a country where there’s no justice there can never be peace! Jonathan has no choice but to shield his foot soldiers, but his cover up has now been blown open, the whole world can now see through his demonic nature. He and all his collaborators will be matched to the Hague for trials of the crimes committed against humanity. Come 2015! Power must change hands!!

    • john micheals

      Playing politics with Terrorism is pathetic, How can PDP sponsor Boko Haram ? To discredit their government ? pls which party does Hajarat Al shabaab Al Mujahideen belong to ? Is that not a terror group fueled by their own evil desires ? Its crazy that people will think this terrorist are being sponsored by a certain party.

      • Wähala

        Now it’s crazy to call the PDP Janjaweed Party ba? Where were you when Oly Metuh and FFK were branding the APC Islamic Party of God… sponsors of Boko Haram? Hypocrite… Depart from me!

        • john micheals

          How do i depart from you when you come to my post to embarrass yourself ?
          Do i look like Metuh or FFK to you ?
          you’d better take your ‘wahala’ to your co-ignoramus.

            If you look like Metuh, and sound like Fani… you must be a fanatica!

        You can say that because the culpable party is PDP, the story would have been different if it was the opposition party that was implicated by the revelations of the Australian negotiator, hired by the Federal Government under Gej. They should be ready to prove their innocence in the Hague sooner than later. Agents of anarchy!!

      • ola

        No in order to crucify the opposition. Remember when the empty shell Olisha parrot said that APC was boko nonsense.

    • Wähala

      Dumbo must go to The Hague for his role and crimes against humanity…wallahi!

  • Mr. Abdin

    The time for the truth to come out is now.

  • Ette

    This disclosure by Davis is not new as security agencies and Nyako have been aware and said so. Recall the letter from Nyako. This is a confirmation. Azazi said PDP are boko haram sponsors, hence could not allow him take actions to stop them. Ndume was a go between boko haram members and the presidency particularly the VP when they tried to use boko haram to threaten the election tribunal to turn the victory of ANPP in Borno to PDP. Remember the tribunal was moved to Abuja to give its verdict. During Ihejirika’s regime, helicopters were seen dropping arms and food for boko haram sect supported by the army to perpetuate their wicked activities to justify the huge security budget they were stealing and keep the political boko haram tempo going for political advantage during 2015 election. Can you imagine boko haram running over military barracks to capture its weapons, killing soldiers like chickens using the weapons surrendered to them by Nigerian army. These are certainly not coincidental but intentionally planned support to keep shedding innocent blood for wicked political power. APC’s advice is in order because GEJ and his wicked PDP cannot sincerely prosecute the culprits. Let ICC wade in to save humanity in Nigeria which is a member of ICC. Many boko haram kingpins like Kabiru Sokoto and Gwuche have been in the custody of this wicked government and because the information gathered from these kingpins have indicted them, there is no way those guys will be prosecuted. Did they not tell us that they wanted to try them in secret, and when the people said no, they just abandoned the trial. What a wicked government. Davis should name the man operating in Cairo and those CBN personnel so Nigerians can take note of them. Those named should also open up because judgment time is here and God is about to visit them with his fierce punishments for all the wickedness they have perpetrated in our land. May God treat them and the supporters of their wicked activities the way they are treating Nigerians.

  • ola

    There must be insiders helping this boko nonsense to perpetrate their act. My question will be: how do they refuel all the conveyors? Able to know information about the particular town to strike? Food supplies and incentives to motivate their mumu followers. Its intrigue that we don’t know who is giving this radical group upper hands in order to commit every act at will. Over to you government officials to analysis these questions. Arise!

  • ola

    PDP can run, but they can’t hide from the truth. The time for revelation is now.

  • ola

    In the modern society where there is incompetent leader, the one and only option available to its citizens disposal is to vote such a government out. There is no but or is, such leader has to give chance to other capable individual to take reign of the leadership from the person. What is happening in Nigeria right now, we cannot fold of hands and pretend that everything is right with us. Definitely, change is imminent in 2015 because leaving like this for the next fours years would be disastrous
