The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Diaspora has urged the Federal Government to fast-track naming and the arrest of sponsors of Boko Haram and other terrorist acts in Nigeria to curb growing insecurity.
The group, comprising the Diaspora chairmen about 13 countries, stated this yesterday in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Dr. Phillip Ideawor and secretary Mr. Lawal Ayoola.
They noted that making the sponsors known would drastically reduce activities of terrorists, who thrive on funds provided by such individuals to operate.
“Insecurity challenge in Nigeria has become so overwhelming that only a drastic action can curb it.
“No one involved should be spared, considering the many lives that have been lost, including that of security operatives who are fighting to protect the citizenry.
“We believe that as soon as funding for terrorism activities is stopped, it will naturally fizzle out,” the group said.
The diaspora chairmen include: Dr. Philip Ideawor (Forum Chairman/Chairman UK); Ayoola (Scandinavia); Mr. Stephen Tella (Chairman, APC Spain); Prof. Adesegun Labinjo (Chairman, APC USA); Mr. Charles Micheletti (Chairman, APC Ghana); and Mr. Adefioye Hammed (Chairman, APC Ireland).
Others are Mr. Olalekan Ogunwede (Chairman, APC Germany); Mr. Olanrewaju Balogun (Chairman, APC France); Mr Elias Ebone (Chairman, APC Canada); Prince Chima Ibezim (Chairman, Italy); Mr. Bola Babarinde (Chairman South Africa); Mr. David Abraham (Chairman, South Korea); Mr. Agbaakin Olatoye Rasaq (APC, Gambia); and Emeritus Chairman, Mr. Tony Isama.
