Edwin Clark Wants IBB, Buhari, Atiku Arrested Over Boko Haram
Chief Edwin Clark, leader of the Ijaw nation and kinsman to President Goodluck Jonathan has asked for the immediate arrest of Former Heads of State, Generals Muhammadu Buhari and Ibrahim Babangida as well as former Vice President Atiku Abubakar for their links with the dreaded Boko Haram sect.
Speaking in Abuja Wednesday, as the guest lecturer at the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies’ (NIALS) annual lecture on the State of the Federation declared “IBB should have spoken on the Boko Haram issue long before now, why has he been silent all this while. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has visited Maiduguri, why has IBB and General Buhari not visited the place?”
‘’IBB and Buhari have been meeting surreptitiously, yet he (IBB) and Obasanjo went to issue joint statement on Boko Haram scourge. Why can’t IBB and Buhari do the same? The joint statement is a suspect; after all, they are all in Boko Haram. Some prominent politicians vowed to make the country ungovernable if the 2011 election did not reflect the wishes of the people. They should be arrested and prosecuted.
“Boko Haram is a political group created by some politicians who have vowed that they will make the country ungovernable if they don’t win the election. The government should have taken care of those who made the statement before now”.
Clark who is a staunch and major beneficiary of the Jonathan’s government also took a swipe on the national leader of ACN and former governor of Lagos state, Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his lack of respect for President Jonathan and referring to him as “a drunken fisherman”, as well as the 19 Northern governors for working against Jonathan,
Clark said: “The governors have taken over the PDP. The governors have turned themselves into opposition political party. They installed some officers of the party and therefore, some of the officers are not loyal to the leaders of the party.”
