‘Boko Haram Spread Under Your Watch’, Lai Mohammed Blames Obasanjo

‘Boko Haram Spread Under Your Watch’, Lai Mohammed Blames Obasanjo

The Federal Government has passed the blame of rising insurgency and widespread killings in the country to former president Olusegun Obasanjo.

Recall that Obasanjo had blasted the Federal Government for failing to manage the security challenges in the country and allowing the spread of insurgency.

Chief Olusegun Obasanja had said: “They have both incubated and developed beyond what Nigeria can handle alone. They are now combined and internationalized with ISIS in control.

“It is no longer an issue of lack of education and lack of employment for our youths in Nigeria which it began as, it is now West African fulanization, African Islamization and global organized crimes of human trafficking, money laundering, drug trafficking, gun trafficking, illegal mining and regime change.

“Yet, we could have dealt with both earlier, and nip them in the bud, but Boko Haram boys were seen as rascals not requiring serious attention in administering holistic measures of stick and carrot.

In a swift reaction to Obasanjo’s comments, Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed on Tuesday blamed the former president for his role in allowing the spread of Boko Haram.

He described former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s comments of imputing ethno-religious motive to Boko Haram and ISWAP as deeply offensive and patently divisive, saying such indiscreet comments are far below the status of an elder statesman.

“Since the Boko Haram crisis, which had been simmering under the watch of Obasanjo, boiled over in 2009, the terrorist organization has killed more Muslims than adherents of any other religion, blown up more mosques than any other houses of worship and is not known to have spared any victim on the basis of their ethnicity.

“It is therefore absurd to say that Boko Haram and its ISWAP variant have as their goal the ‘Fulanisation and Islamisation’ of Nigeria, West Africa or Africa.

“Boko Haram is a mindless, godless group who are as far away from Islam as one can think of.

“That explains the massive degrading of Boko Haram, which has since lost its capacity to carry out the kind of spectacular attacks for which it became infamous, and the recovery of every inch of captured Nigerian territory from the terrorists.”
