Take Action Before Boko Haram Kills us all Arewa Youths Beg Jonathan

Threaten to mobilise youths on
street protests if killings persist
By Soni Daniel, Regional Editor,
Angered by the unceasing
destruction of lives and property
in the North-East, Arewa
Northern youths, Monday,
accused the Presidency and
northern leaders of playing
politics with the menace posed
by Boko Haram terrorists.

The aggrieved youths, who met
in Kaduna under the aegis of
Arewa Youths Forum, expressed
regret that despite repeated
assurances, government had not
been able to put an end to the
spate of attacks that had crippled
the region and displaced
thousands of their natives into
neighbouring countries.
The executives of AYF, who
reviewed the state of insurgency
in the three northern states of
Borno, Yobe and Adamawa,
noted with dismay that the
terrorists had been able to move
about freely and slaughter no
fewer than 500 persons and sent
over 100,000 others into exile in
Cameroun, Chad and Niger
republics in the last few weeks
without any serious challenge
from the security agencies.

The National President of the AYF,
Alhaji Gambo Gujungu, who
released the communiqué of the
body to Vanguard in Abuja, said
the youths were convinced that
the issue of Boko Haram
insurgency had been politicised
by the Presidency, northern
governors and religious leaders
in the country.
