Borno - Factional national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, on Thursday, urged the Federal Government to investigate anybody who may have links with the notorious Islamic sect, Boko Haram, Tribune reports.
Sheriff, who was reacting to the statement credited with the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice of Borno State, Kaka Shehu, during the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference in Port Harcourt, said he should be arrested for allegedly sponsoring the terrorist group, giving the state government seven days to withdraw the statement or face legal action.
Speaking through his Special Adviser on Media, Inuwa Bwala, in Abuja, on Thursday, Sheriff stated that this was not the first time officials of Borno State government would be casting aspersions on him over the sect’s activities.
According to him, “this one coming from somebody who supposed to know the law. It is going to be one allegation too many, because Sheriff has already initiated processes of slamming N10 billion suit against the Attorney-General and Borno State government, unless he proves otherwise what he said is backed with evidences".
He pointed out that this was the opportunity he had been waiting for, adding that all those who made similar allegations against him in the past have links with Borno State government.
The Attorney-General and Commissioner of Justice, Borno State, Kaka Shehu Lawan had accused the factional Chairman of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) Ali Modu Sheriff of being the mastermind of Boko Haram according to News24.
He, therefore, called on the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to arrest and prosecute the former Borno State Governor.
