Kukah To Buhari: Be Bold To Release Names Of Boko Haram Sponsors



Kukah To Buhari: Be Bold To Release Names Of Boko Haram Sponsors

Foremost Clergyman, Bishop Mathew Kukah has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to summon the courage and release the names of terrorism sponsors and financiers in the country.

Naija News reports that the Federal Government had said that it has identified the sponsors of Boko Haram in the North East region and would not name and shame them.

The government added that it would soon begin the prosecution of these highly placed Nigerians suspected to be financing terrorism.

Speaking in a sermon on Sunday, Kukah accused the Muhammadu Buhari administration of being insincere with the fight against Boko Haram in the country.

The Archbishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese claimed that the Buhari government is not interested in dealing with terrorists killing Nigerians on a daily basis.

Kukah, however, wondered why it is difficult for the government to release names of sponsors of Boko Haram terrorists in the country.

The vocal cleric added that “Nigerian is a broken country and it is decomposing from within”, asking the government to rise up to his responsibilities of securing the lives and properties of the citizens.

He said: “Nigeria is a broken country. It is decomposing from within. Our heart is broken and lives are haemorrhaging by the day. We cannot go on like this.

“The country and people have become so traumatised and sedated by horrible news, that have now become comfortable in ‘this swamp of evil’.

“No number of horrific deaths, murders, sexual violence and kidnapping of children or adults can make us stop our life of debauchery.”
