Borno Emirates Concerned Citizens (BEC) Forum has tasked the Federal Government to investigate and review the nation’s security architecture.
According to the forum, the point of shifting blames on civilians is over, because of the massive killings and kidnapping.
While lamenting incessant attacks in different parts of the state, the Forum Chairman, Hassan Boguma, at a news conference in Maiduguri, yesterday said: “We express with dismay the recurring attacks on military formations and subsequent eviction of constituted authorities in Damasak, Geidam and Mainok by terrorists in Borno and Yobe states.”
“The repeating of same tactics by military and other security agencies have strengthened the insurgents in terrorism.”
He therefore called on security agencies to review their adopted measures of protecting life and property. He also called on the Presidency to immediately summon a national security meeting addressing the lingering insecurity.
