Boko Haram: Afenifere urges South-west residents to be vigilant
It appealed to people of the region to be on the alert, by monitoring the movement of strangers in their midst.
A statement by its National Chairman, Hon. Olawale Oshun, the call became necessary following the latest video released by the leader of the Boko Haram sect, Abubakar Shekau in which he claimed responsibility for the Nyanya bomb attack and also vowed more attacks across the country.
The group said that such a threat should be treated with utmost concern.
“ARG is calling on all the residents in the South West of Nigeria to take this threat very seriously, and be vigilant.
“We call on the residents to report to security agencies, monarchs, traditional leaders and the offices of the governors any suspicious movement of men and materials that come to their notice.
“ARG wishes to alert the traditional institutions, from the highly revered monarchs to the Baales (the village heads) and Mogajis (clan heads) to their responsibility towards their subjects in this dire time.
“All the leaders of our people at every level would have no reason, through acts of omission or commission, to allow total strangers over-run their domains,” concluded the statement.
