* Action heightens security concerns
The emergence of a new group, believed to be out to checkmate Boko Haram, is giving security agencies in the north goose pimples.
Security sources said that the new group, Akhwat Akwop, claimed that its target for violence would be women whose husbands were reportedly behind the violent activities of Boko Haram in the last three months.
However, security personnel, now trying to unravel those behind the new ‘’terror group’’, believe that the peace in the north was being threatened the more, because of the suspicion occasioned by the several clashes in various parts of the north in the last 10 years in which the perpetrators were not punished due to alleged lack of political will by the authorities to implement any of the reports of the investigative panels instituted to look into the crises.
