The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has said the federal government and the military have a lot of questions to answer following the recent Boko Haram attack on the convoy of Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state.
The spokesperson for the ACF, Emmanuel Yawe in a statement said the attacks on the governor have raised doubts on the ability of the military to defend the nation, Daily Trust reported.
According to the northern-based group, it is alarmed that Boko Haram has continued to launch deadly attacks despite the security assurances given by the military and the federal government.
The ACF pointed out that the attack on the governor comes after a serving senior military officer, Col. Bako, was ambushed and killed around Demboa in the same Borno state.
The group said:
“We call on the military to act swiftly to restore this confidence. The ACF is also aware of the sagging morale of our fighting men. The federal government and the military high command must act quickly and resolve all the issues that have led to the current low morale.”
The forum demanded Borno State be protected, warning that if anything happens to him, the consequences for the rest of the country would be grave.
Meanwhile, less than 48 hours after an initial attack, Boko Haram insurgents have again reportedly ambushed Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state.
Multiple reports say the attack happened on Sunday, September 27, along the Monguno-Maiduguri axis of the state.
The attack occurred while the convoy of the governor was reportedly returning from Monguno, about 80km drive from Maiduguri, the capital of the state.
