Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has lamented the “apparent helplessness of the nation’s security forces in the face of the onslaught of Boko Haram on defenceless Nigerians”.
In a statement issued in Enugu by the Media Adviser to the President General of Ohanaeze, Chief Nnia Nwodo, it said the weakness of an ineffectual resistance to the dastardly acts of the insurgents was traceable to the country’s dysfunctional security apparatus.
The organization was reacting to the recent killing of humanitarian worker, Hauwa Leman.
Nwodo said that as long as the headship of the nation’s security agencies were determined by tribal origin and analogue security chiefs who have their tenures illegally extended, the forage by the insurgents would be hardly contained.
The President General further stated that as long as security interface with foreign intelligence are selectively adhered to and historical relationships between the Commander in Chief and Boko Haram do not recommend radical rather than soft approaches, so long will Boko Haram continue to ridicule our military prowess and make the world look at our security policies with skepticism and disdain.
He prayed for the repose of the souls of all those who have met their deaths in the hands of the insurgents.
