UMUAHIA — FORMER President of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Dr. Dozie Ikedife, has called on Northern leaders to declare a definite stand on Boko Haram, and state specifically if they were in support or against the terrorists group.
According to the former Ohanaeze President, “northern leaders’ silence on the killings by the Boko Haram and the way they are talking about Federal Government granting amnesty to the sect speaks very eloquently on where they stand and who are sponsoring them.”.
Ikedife regretted that none of the Northern elders, who now wanted amnesty granted the sect without further delay, had come out to condemn the killings.
He said: “Rather, they all kept sealed leaps and turned blind eyes to the plight of the victims’ families and on how to compensate them.
“If they don’t want, the ultimate thing is to divide this country into as many segments as possible; let each ethnic nationality go on its own.”
