Adopt Ebola strategy on Boko Haram, NBA tells FG

The Maiduguri chapter of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on Monday urged the Federal Government to adopt some of its strategies against the Ebola Virus Disease in fighting Boko Haram.

The Chairman of the association, Malam Abdulwasiu Alfa, told NAN in Maiduguri that the tactics would go a long way in ending insurgency in the country.

“We commend the Federal Government for gallantly curbing the spread of the Ebola virus. We urge the government to do so toward ending the Boko Haram reign of terror in the country,” Alfa said.

Alfa said that if government had adopted the same strategy in fighting the insurgency the problem would have been solved long ago.

“If the government will fight the insurgency the way it fought the dreaded Ebola virus, the Boko Haram sect will have been crushed long ago,” he said.

Alfa also urged the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the National Commission for Refugees (NCR) to be more proactive toward assisting thousands of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Borno.

“Government agencies charged with providing succor to the IDPs like NEMA and NCR should be more visible in areas which has the highest number of IDPs,” Alfa said.

He also called on the Federal Government to issue a white paper on the Gaji Galtimari Committee of Inquiry into the Boko Haram crisis in the state.
