Nigeria: Ijaw Leader Advise Northern Elders On Boko Haram

Prof. Kimse Okoko, past President, the Ijaw National Congress (INC), and a Professor of Political Science, said those who promised to make the country ungovernable spurred Boko Haram into action.

“Before now, they claimed they did not know the identities of members of the sect, and now they want to meet government for dialogue because of Boko Haram.

“One may ask, do they now know those involved”, he said.

“I have no doubt in my mind that those statements by some politicians before and during the elections on making the country ungovernable might have spurred the actions of the sect. Those statements are very serious.

“If they now say that they want to meet to discuss the activities of Boko Haram, well, let’s see the outcome”, he said.
