APGA urges FG to remove Boko Haram from Ekwulobia


The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has asked the Federal Government of Nigeria to urgently remove the 47 Boko Haram inmates recently relocated to Ekwulobia Minimum Prison in Anambra, reports ITRealms.

The Chairman of the party, Dr. Victor Ike Oye, ITRealms gathered in condemning the relocation, urged the Federal Government to emulate what United States of America did when it was faced with similar precarious circumstance that it built Guantanamo Bay detention facility located in a small island near Cuba, where terror suspects and convicts are detained.

He said that unlike the Guantanamo Bay detention facility, access into the Ekwulobia Prison is as easy as gaining access in and out of the National Stadium in Lagos.

 “They did not consider the sensibilities of the people and the far-reaching consequences of the movement or was it a case of deliberate design to continue to spite the Igbo who have suffered many years of marginalization and ill treatment?” he asked.

In a press statement released by the spokesman of the party, Ifeanacho Oguejiofor, ITRealms learnt, the APGA Chairman enjoined the FG to be prompt in relocating the terrorist suspects in order not to seem to be sabotaging the good works of the Anambra State Government and its effort in creating an air of security and tranquility that had already pervaded the entire state before the relocation of the prisoners.

“The good people of Anambra State and its government do not need this distraction,” he said.

The APGA National Chairman, ITRealms  further gathered,  urged the government to start the construction of modern prisons across the nation and also embark on the provision of jobs for millions of unemployed youth to curtail or curb crimes since accessories to terrorism and other crimes are majorly the youth whose future had been mortgaged by years of misadministration and malfeasance by successive leaderships.
