Why Buhari'll not declare Boko Haram terrorists - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The controversial presidential spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, has given some reasons why the APC government led by Mr. President, General Muhammadu Buhari, retired, refused to declare Boko Haram terrorists, reports

Speaking with BBC Pidgin on Saturday, monitored in Lagos by ITREALMS, Shehu said there is a subsisting order by the president to shoot any bandit on sight as part of highhandedness worse than declaring Boko Haram sect terrorists.
He also said that even the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that has been outlawed does not have such an order against it, stressing that there is no preferential treatment for the bandits.

“What the Buhari administration has done to the arms-wielding bandits is worse than being declared as terrorists,” he declared.

As said by him, “Do you know that there is a subsisting order by the President that any arms-wielding, AK-47 bandits should be shot on sight.

“I am saying yes, IPOB has been proscribed by law of the land, there is no shoot-on-sight order on IPOB. There is nothing to suggest that these bandits are treated preferentially.”

According to Shehu, progress has been made in taking out these terrorists.

“The Nigerian Air Force is busy bombing locations, the military is there on the ground, exchanging fire for fire, taking them out in hundreds, that is certainly not treating them (terrorists) lightly,” he said.

Insisting that “Before President Muhammadu Buhari [assumed office] many Nigerians could not worship on Fridays, mosques were being bombed, on Sundays churches were being bombed, motor parks and public gatherings.”
