Boko Haram: Dr Brimah Calls For The Arrest Of Senator Ali Modu Sheriff


A political commentator and Executive Director of Every Nigerian Do Something (ENDS), an NGO dedicated to inspiring every Nigeria citizens to get involved and ‘do something’, Dr Peregrino Brimah has called on the Federal Government to immediately arrest Senator Ali Modu Sheriff for his alleged role in the sponsorship and invention of the dreaded terrorist Group, Boko Haram , which is presently ravaging the North Eastern part of the country

In a press statement sent to Skytrend News yesterday, Dr Brimah said sponsors of terror and top level suspects can no longer walk free and must be brought to account for their deed. He insisted that “the dots must be connected” and serious investigations run on all those who have sided, abetted and sponsored, directly or indirectly, the menace of terrorism now plaguing Nigeria and her neighbors.

Brimah stressed that it is an insult for the people of Borno State who are standing up to combat insane terror and Nigeria’s military who are also engaged, fighting and dying to restore sanity to one of the prior most peaceful parts of Nigeria, some of them paying the ultimate sacrifice, fighting and dying to protect the sanctity and sanity of life while the sponsors and inventors of terror remain lose and above the law, while our youth and army who we portray as dispensable and disposable, die to clear up the mess.

not just in the north east, but the entire nation, it is an insult and vituperation to the nation and gravid misconduct of the authorities of Nigeria, that the sponsors and inventors of terror remain lose and above the law, while our youth and army who we portray as dispensable and disposable, die to clear up the mess.

According to Dr Brimah, “Ali Modu Sheriff, aka, SAS is chief suspect. The people have passed their judgment. After the bombing in Maiduguri today (yesterday), our brave youths could take it no more and once again, went after the senator.“

Senator Ali Modu Sheriff was the bloody-rich governor of Borno State, under whose watch Boko Haram successfully evolved. 

Brimah argued that it’s a great hurt, pain and  insult for the people of the state and indeed all Nigerians for such a terror suspect as Ali Modu Sheriff to come back, free and fat and once again get involve in politics in the state.

“It is public knowledge that the politicians of Borno State invented ECOMOG, an armed civilian hooligan force, which was used for political intimidation during Ali Modu Sheriffs battle to edge out Governor Mala Kachallah from the Government House,” he claimed. 

The statement reads in part: “Sponsors of terror can no longer walk free. Top level suspects must be brought in. Dots must be connected and serious investigations run on all those who have sided and abetted and sponsored, directly or indirectly, the menace that plagues Nigeria and its neighbors.

“Those whose duty it was to protect the people, but were negligent and even went ahead to arm bandits who later became full blown terrorists, must be held to account for their misdeeds, not just to clear up this particular mess, but in responsibility and as a responsibility of the government, to prevent this from recurring and recurring in a political reckless republic.

“Alhaji Mala  Atuman, who was declared wanted by the Civilian JTF June 27th last year and whose house was later attacked by Borno youth, leading up to his arrest—which SAS reproached—and others who filled in the vacuum when SAS and his team abandoned Boko Haram-Ecomog, must all be arrested and thoroughly interrogated.

“There must be top level culprits. Nigerians are not monkeys and our lives are not more worthless than grass. Enough is enough. The National Security Advisers of Nigeria, under whose tenures and whose responsibilities it was to check and arrest the development of terror networks in the country must be brought to book for dereliction of the duty for which Nigeria paid them.

“In our jobs, we all do our duty. If we fail, we are fired and/or sued. Nigeria’s ministers, governors, security advisers and presidents who failed to protect the society, which paid them heavily to do so, must be brought to account for their carelessness and direct or indirect facilitation of the menaces of deadly terror, north and south. There must be fiscal responsibility and retribution, for us to be a nation or nations more than a mere collection of barbarians. Things cannot get better if administrative criminals are not held to account.

He challenged the government to bring the sponsors of terror to justice since the President claimed in May 2012 that he knew the terror suspect and promised to get justice done.

Dr Brimah said that failure of the current administration to deal with terror from the top, even as the army and brave youth sacrifice and die to curb it from the bottom, will clearly define the government as a supporter of, and accessory to death and terror.
