Igbo youths blast Buhari for reinstating Biu

07 September 2015, 16:02

Abuja - The youth wing of the apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has questioned the reinstatement of the dismissed Commissioner of Police, Zakari Biu, Punch reports.

Biu was on Friday reinstated and statutorily retired by the Police Service Commission, nearly three years after he was dismissed for allegedly aiding the escape of Boko Haram mastermind, Kabiru Sokoto.

The group said the action of the Police Service Commission had confirmed that Buhari’s administration indeed belongs to the North and not to everybody.

It accused the President Muhammadu Buhari of pursuing a northern agenda.

The group said that by reinstating Biu, President Buhari had demonstrated that he had no regard for the lives of the innocent worshipers who perished in the bomb blast masterminded by Sokoto.

It will be recalled that no fewer than 44 worshipers of the church lost their lives on the eve of 2011 Christmas.
