Emir Of Kano Attack: IBB Calls For Dialogue Between FG And Boko Haram

IBB-638x300Former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida (rtd), has called on the Federal Government to exploit the option of dialogue with members of the insurgent group, Boko Haram, in order to arrest the prevailing drift in the nation’s security.

The gap-toothed general made this stance known while commiserating with the Emir of Kano, Dr. Ado Bayero, over last weekend’s attack on his convoy which left no fewer than four persons dead.

According to Babangida, “The use of force has proven to be inadequate and ineffective to checkmate this ugly trend. We must, therefore, put hands together to find a more rewarding and meaningful end to this security concern. Dialogue is my number one preference in this regard. Government must also encourage positive discourses among its political appointees delivered with respect and rendered in temperate language to soothe the mood of the nation.

“Language of force will not help us in our strong determination to address this insecurity problem. We must engage ourselves constructively and in a manner that puts the interest of the country far and above other partisan consideration.”



  1. Where was IBB when the Bokoharam was attacking d Christians in the North, IBB did not beg President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to dialogue with the Bokoharam, but when the Palace of Emir of Kano was attacked he is now saying that Jonathan should dialogue with the Sect.

  2. atleast during IBB there is no BH , Abacha , and OBJ you stupid South South parots will soon receive special guest of BH in your Lands and Communities and may you rest in peace. whoever denied his neighbour a good sleep he will neither sleep too…

  3. Why now he became worried over Boko Haram issue,they have be doing allot of Destruction to life`s and properties .Every one is quite till now.If Emir of Kano is not attack by Boko Haram ,IBB will not say any thing. IBB well you are welcome but the issue of killing Boko haram have to be looking into .Thank you for be concerned.

  4. Is this the right time for him to be concern about this Boko haram issue, since they are bombing churches all over kaduna state, he didn’t heard that, now it affects the emir is the time he will be concern, a day is coming when you foes that are behind this will be brought to book.cz
