The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) yesterday condemned the alleged plot by unnamed North-East elders to scuttle the on-going war against Boko Haram insurgency. The Nigerian Army first exposed the plot on Friday and repeated the claim on Saturday.

ACF said in a statement issued in Kaduna by its National Publicity Secretary Muhammad Ibrahim: “ACF considers this statement very grave, disturbing and worrisome considering the efforts being put by the military and other security agencies to end the insurgency in the North-East region.

"It is callous, wicked and unfortunate that some prominent individuals places their personal benefits above national interest, the daily killings of innocent lives and destruction of property as a result of the Boko Haram insurgency in the last six years.”

ACF urged the military “to thoroughly investigate the clandestine activities and other diabolical efforts of these politicians, expose and prosecute them to serve as a deterrent to others.”

It said that “Nigeria cannot afford to treat such unscrupulous groups or individuals with kid gloves at this material time that all hands are on deck to restore peace and order in the North-East subregion and the country in general.”

The group assured that it will support and encourage the military to take any lawful action “against the so called prominent elders and politicians undermining the effort of the Federal Government to combat terrorism and insurgency in Nigeria.”
