A Socio-political group, North East Peace Assembly (NEPA) has threatened to expose the secret pact the Governor of Borno State ,Babagana Umara Zulum had with Boko Haram and its Sponsors.
Speaking via a Press statement, the Group said Zulum of Borno State received a seven-day ultimatum to apologize to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian military over a series of false accusations levelled against troops on the frontlines.
The North East Peace Assembly (NEPA) said failure to do so means he would be compelled to tell the world about his secret pact with Boko Haram and its sponsors.
This was contained in a statement signed by the group’s leader, Mallam Musa Babangida, on Saturday, following an investigative report which rubbished the governor’s latest allegation claiming troops’ involvement in agricultural activities in the northeast.
In the statement titled, “Gov. Zulum; reclaim your honour by tendering an unreserved apology to Nigerian Army for consistent defamation of character”, the North East Peace Assembly demanded that Zulum do the needful to redeem his already battered image.
It said the governor is fast “carving a niche for himself as an astute fabricator/inventor of sensational fake news” and Nigerians now perceive him as “one of the many covert forces promoting Boko Haram terrorism in Nigeria”.
“The North East Peace Assembly (NEPA) wishes to animate the conscience of Borno state Gov. Babagana Umara Zulum to claim his honour and dignity for unswervingly portraying himself as a leader who regales in peddling blatant lies on the Army. He must do it within seven days of this publication and upon failure, Nigerians should compel him to tell the rest of the world, the secret pact he has signed with Boko Haram and its sponsors,” the statement reads.
