A former National Secretary of the Labour Party, Dr Kayode Ajulo has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to name and prosecute sponsors of terrorism.
Naija News reports that the legal practitioner was reacting to Buhari’s Independence Day nationwide broadcast.
The president had during the broadcast accused sponsors of separatist agitations of abandoning their national leadership positions for their selfish gains.
He disclosed that a member of the National Assembly has been identified as sponsor of separatist agitation.
According to Buhari, this came to light following the arrests of the leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Adeyemo, alias Igboho.
“The recent arrests of Nnamdi Kanu and Sunday Adeyemo, and the ongoing investigations being conducted have revealed certain high-profile financiers behind these individuals,” the president said.
“We are vigorously pursuing these financiers including one identified as a serving member of the National Assembly.
“This is a clear example of how people abandon their national leadership positions for their selfish gains.”
Reacting while speaking with PUNCH, Ajulo asked the president to deal with the terrorism financiers decisively.
While commending the president for his Independence Day speech, the lawyer noted that it is important to identify sponsors of insecurity in our midst.
The former Labour Party stalwart asked Buhari to name, apprehend and make sure terrorism financiers face the full weight of the law.
“We need to name and deal with them accordingly within the ambit of the law. Since the inception of this administration, the citizenry has been assured of the government’s utmost attention to security, which the Federal Government has vigorously pursued. We need to be reassured, hence, the need to name and deal with terrorism sponsors accordingly,” he said.
