President Buhari should treat Avengers, IPOB as Boko Haram, says Muhammad Yunusa and others

THE Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government owned Companies has asked the Federal Government to descend on the Niger Delta Avengers and the Independent People of Biafra with the same vigour as Boko Haram insurgency for almost bringing the country to its kneel.

 This, the senior civil servants believed, became imperative because of the depleting economy occasioned by the nefarious activities of the militant groups.

 A communiqué signed by the association’s President and Secretary, Muhammad Yunusa and M.O. Abogonye, which was made available to journalists in Kaduna on Monday, said, “The NEC (National Executive Council) in session commends government efforts in fighting insecurity in the country but urges Mr. President to combat the nefarious acts of herdsmen, Independent People of Biafra and the Niger Delta Avengers with the same vigour as Boko Haram insurgency.”

The NEC officials of the association, who met in Kaduna, however, knocked President Muhammadu Buhari on the delay in the payment of benefits to retirees one year after leaving office.
