Bow Group, a conservative think-tank in the United Kingdom, has published a report in which it alleges the culpability of All Progressive Congress politicians in Boko Haram operations in Nigeria.
The report claimed that: “An early investigation into the backers of Boko Haram and their links to the APC, followed by potential sanctions designed to prevent Nigeria becoming a future safe-haven for terrorists, and threat to UK citizens at home and abroad, therefore seems an appropriate and important strategy to prevent future terrorist threats before they take hold.”
The report also warned the United States to be careful in its dealings with the APC.[eap_ad-1]
“Any political pact between US officials and the APC carries risks – the US must adopt a neutral approach to the Nigerian elections and political landscape.”
The report, which was authored by Mr. Jacob Zen, a research analyst who has written extensively about Boko Haram and Northern Nigeria and also testified at the U.S. Congress’ hearing on the atrocities of Boko Haram, was, however, short on specifics regarding how the body arrived at its conclusion.
A member of the APC, who pleaded anonymity because the party has yet to officially react to the report, said the Bow Group is making a political statement that is capable of heating up an already overheated polity. He warned the group to desist from publishing such reports in the near future as Nigerians head to the polls early next year. (The Scoop)[eap_ad_4]
