A centre has called for an end in the attacks and killing of humanitarian workers and clergies by members of the Boko Haram terrorist group in the north east.
The Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights (CALSER) urged all international organisation involved with the provision of food and drugs for presumed terrorists to stop their actions.
Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Sunday, January 26, the centre alleged that some international NGOs have continued to breach international protocol on their operations by aiding and abetting the supply and delivery of sophisticated weaponry, food and drugs to the Boko Haram/ISWAP group under the guise of rendering humanitarian services.
Speaking at the conference the convener, Princess Ajibola said CALSER in its periodic assessment for the month of January warned political and religious organisations in the country not to expand the frontiers of Boko Haram by overheating the polity with unfounded allegations.
Ajibola said such allegations are capable of undermining the ongoing efforts by the government to tame terrorism.
"The Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights is alarmed by the way and manner the Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorist group has intensified attacks on unarmed and innocent clergies and humanitarian workers rendering services in north east Nigeria," Ajibola said.
She called on the European Union and the representatives of the United Nations in Nigeria to audit and caution international NGOs in operation in the north east to stop the supply of arms and ammunition and other essential items to the terrorist group.
Ajibola said: "Ironically, The Centre for Africa Liberation and Socio-Economic Rights has it on competent authority that some local political organizations, as well as religious bodies, are covertly providing tactic support to the Boko Haram/ISWAP group all in a bid to undermine the efforts of the government."
