Foremost rights advocacy group, the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to go the whole distance in ridding the federal government of all sympathisers of the ideals of terrorism in the country.
This is even as the group called on the Commander-in-Chief to immediately relieve Communications and Digital Economy Minister, Isa Ali Pantami of his duties over his comments in a viral video which portrayed him as a sympathizer of global terrorist sect, Al-Qaeda.
In a statement signed by its Executive Director, Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA charged President Buhari to be courageous in arresting and prosecuting terrorists and bandits such as armed Fulani herdsmen “who are about pushing Nigeria into a state of civil war by their unbridled quest to displace farmers all over the country.
The rights group challenged the President to “expose and boot out all the sleeping sympathizers of Islamic terror networks embedded in his federal government if he truly means to decisively dismantle all the terror cells in existence in Nigeria and especially those who are actively threatening the territorial integrity of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
