• Govt to probe ex-gov
The Presidency is worried over the silence of Northern leaders and elders on Boko Haram crisis. The government is not comfortable that they are not condemning the Islamist sect enough on the spate of attacks and the loss of lives and properties, a senior government official said yesterday.
A top government source disclosing the feelings of the Federal Government said it was worried and concerned that since the sect increased its spate of attacks over a year ago, there has not been a strong condemnation of Boko Haram from the region, hence, raising concerns on the continual co-existence of the country.
The source said, this was the highlight of a security meeting held in
. The meeting resolved to investigate a certain former governor who set up the militant group as political hoodlums enterprise. The security chiefs said he nurtured the sect through adequate funding until it metamorphosed into a terror group Abuja
