New information has it that a Borno-based cleric, Pastor Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa, had, as far back as January, 2011 unmasked those behind the activities of the dreaded Islamic sect popularly known as Boko Haram and forwarded their names to the Senate President, Senator David Mark, for necessary action.
According to the Nigerian Tribune, the cleric documented the activities of the sect in an open letter to the Senate President entitled, “Open letter to the Senate president: My Suggestion on how to tackle Boko Haram,” dated 17th June, 2011 but was received by the office of the Senate President on November 2, 2011.
The alarming claims of the cleric in the open letter where supported with five DVDs containing video clips of the activities of the sect and their sponsors. These were said to have been promptly forwarded by the Senate president to the appropriate Senate committee for thorough investigation on as far back as February 29 this year but nothing was heard since then, probably because of the names of the prominent Nigerians and top government officials mentioned.
The cleric was said to have also advised that the government should start the crusade of ending the Boko Haram menace in the country by fishing out its (government’s) officials and security agents supporting the terrorist group since it had now been established that the group was being supported by prominent Nigerians, top government officials and security personnel.
