"A very dangerous scenario is unfolding. I wouldn't be surprised if a copycat group in the North becomes the clandestine military wing of the All Progressives Party, APC, not with their permission ofcourse, but this is how these things begin to take shape, they get out of our control, Boko Haram is our perfect example," Ikiddeh said.
He added that he was only sharing his personal opinion as he cares deeply about Nigeria.
