The Shehu of Bama in Bornu State, Shehu Kyari Ibn Umar El-Kanemi, has said that the inability of the Federal Government to curtail the initial activities of Boko Haram allowed them to fester.
He said this inertia gave the sect enough space to operate, stressing that the growth of the insurgents was a failure of the state.
While acknowledging that President Muhammadu Buhari’s takeover diminished the insurgents, the Shehu lamented that much still needed to be done.
“They are still around, rampaging and attacking soft targets. Just yesterday, there was a bomb blast in Maiduguri where a number of people died. So they need to be mopped up,” he said.
Also speaking, frontline politician and businessman Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu said the Iwuanyanwu Foundation was initiating a move to get female pupils in the affected northern states to come down south to complete their education.
