Abuja - The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Monday urged the Federal Government to institute a full scale, transparent and unbiased probe into the activities of security agencies in the North East.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Monday by Abdulwahed Omar, the NLC National President.
Omar said that the call became necessary because of the recent attack and assassination of the Emir of Gwoza in Borno, Idrisa Timta.
He said that the ease and precision with which the attacks were being carried out, in spite of the several security check and personnel deployed in the zone, were worrisome and unjustifiable.
He stated that it was worrisome that the attacks were increasing, even as the Minister of Finance recently announced that N130 billion had been spent to confront the prevailing armed insurgency.
"We are disturbed that despite huge resource allocations to security, it remains a serious challenge in Nigeria with the recent ambush and assassination of the Emir.
Omar said it had become a national embarrassment that the school children who were abducted from the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno, were yet to be located and rescued.
He said the fact that the children were yet to be rescued and delivered unharmed to their parents questioned the commitment and credibility of those saddled with the search.
Omar called on the National Assembly to probe the financial allocations to the military and the utilisation of the allocations.
He said that the murder of the emir had exposed the soft underbelly of these operations.
He condoled with the family of the Emir of Gwoza and the security operatives involved in the attack.
