Enough Is Enough: Sheriff Offers Self For Probe Over Alleged Boko Haram Sponsorship

Ali Modu Sheriff-CNNA two-term Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has offered himself for investigation over his alleged sponsorship of the Boko Haram sect.

The former governor and factional National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has continuously been linked with sponsorship of the deadly terrorist sect, in spite of his oft-repeated cries of innocence.

The Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice in Borno State, Kaka Shehu Lawal, had, at the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Tuesday, accused Sheriff of being a major sponsor of the insurgents.

But the former governor, in a reaction by his Media Adviser, Mr. Inuwa Bwala on Thursday, rejected Lawal’s allegation, demanding a retraction and apology from the Borno Attorney General.

To prove his innocence, Mr. Bwala said the PDP chieftain has called for comprehensive investigation aimed at exposing sponsors of the terror group.

He said, “We challenge the Federal Government, to as a matter of urgency, investigate, no matter who is involved, and expose those whose antecedents show they have links with Boko Haram.

“The Borno Attorney General is not a security expert and we have the best security men in the world, and they are in a good position to tell us whether someone is directly or indirectly linked to this Boko Haram.

“By taking it upon himself to inform the world that this noble man is linked with Boko Haram, I think it is the greatest disservice to the fight against insecurity.

“I think they are trying to cover up their own culpability in the whole matter. The commissioner is trying to divert attention from the real culprit of Boko Haram”.
