- The revived activities of Boko Haram in the country is a recipe for serious concern to the Senate
- In fact, the president of the upper chamber, Ahmad Lawan, has described the evil group as an industry
- Lawan admitted that the insurgents are still wreaking havoc on citizens, especially in the northern region of the country
According to the latest submission of Nigeria's Senate president, Ahmad Lawan, on Thursday, June 11, Boko Haram now operates in the country just like an industry.
Lawan revealed that the terrorist group now has its members from several religions and nations, AIT News reports.
The Senate boss lamented that despite countless resolutions and efforts made by the red chamber, the insurgents are still thriving in their business of inflicting pain and striking terror in the minds of Nigerians.
He stated: ”Boko Haram has metamorphosed from initially a group of maybe religious zealots into now an industry. It is an industry because what they do is no more religious, they are people from difference, not faiths, from different countries they go about as Boko Haram.
“This Senate passed so many resolutions including the reports of the various ad-hoc committees we set up, senator Kabiru Gaya once headed a committee on insecurity and he toured many parts of the northwest then I also chaired another committee with a public hearing and everything with all the service chiefs were invited but it has persisted.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Governor Babagana Umara Zulum had paid a visit to Gulio local government area of Borno state where Boko Haram insurgents killed a lot of villagers.
There were reports that insurgents murdered at least 70 natives of Faduma Kolomdi village in the state.
Describing the attack as barbaric, Governor Zulum evacuated about five injured persons in his official convoy to a hospital for immediate treatment.
The governor revealed that one strong point the insurgents are holding on to for now is the fact that they have a hiding place in Chad. He added that the terrorists can be defeated when they are dislodged from the region.
Zulum said: "The only solution to end this massacre is by dislodging the insurgents in the shores of Lake Chad. Doing so will require collaborative regional efforts.”
