Boko Haram is a big insult, Nigeria is not safe – OPC


The Oodua People’s Congress, OPC, has described the recent abducti of over 200 Nigerian schoolgirls from Chibok area of Borno State by the Boko Haram sect as a big insult to the nation’s security. Otunba Gani Adams, the National Coordinator of the group, said the incident showed that Nigeria was not safe for its people. This is coming after Dr. Frederick Fasehun, leader of the Odua Peoples Congress (OPC) has said President Goodluck Jonathan must contest for a second term in 2015 in order to avert chaos in the country. Adams told Punch that the numerous security challenges were capable of discouraging foreign investors from bringing their resources into Nigeria and as well discourage Nigerians in other countries from returning home. He also strongly condemned the recent bomb attacks by the outlawed group in Kano and Plateau states where several Nigerians were brutally murdered. He further called on the Federal Government to look beyond the military in the fight against the Boko Haram menace by engaging relevant stakeholders. He said, “Majority of the Boko Haram members are not Nigerians; they infiltrated Nigeria through illegal routes. Report claims that there are 1, 400 illegal routes in the country. That is why we members of the National Security Committee suggested that there must be community police different from the regular police. “We suggested that the community police must be well-equipped to arrest and prosecute suspected criminals. We also suggested that border security must be emphasised to check the persistent infiltration of the country.”
