Boko Haram, tool to destabilise govt, says SSPA

29 August 2011

THE South South Peoples Assembly (SSPA) has described the fundamentalist Islamic sect, Boko Haram, as a political tool in the hands of some powerful Nigerians who have resolved to destabilise President Goodluck Jonathan’s government.
SSPA which is an umbrella body of people of the Niger Delta, cautioned all the sponsors of the recent spates of terrorism to bear in mind that those who stand to lose the most should not be the ones pushing the country to the brink.

Piqued by the bombing of the United Nations office in Abuja, a group, the Jonathan Project has canvassed the overhaul of the entire security structure in Nigeria due to the prevailing security challenges in the country.
In a statement issued in Port Harcourt yesterday and endorsed by Amb. Mathew Mbu, Justice Karibi Whyte (rtd) and Dr. Kalada Iruenabere, SSPA described the terror tactics adopted by the Boko Haram sect as orchestrated plots by some disgruntled persons to make Nigeria ungovernable during the reign of President Jonathan.
They said: “Let all those sponsoring these acts of terrorism know that while it is easy to tell the beginning of a war, no one can tell its end. Those who stand to lose the most should not be the ones pushing this country to the brink.”
