The All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Diaspora has decried the frightening unfolding security situation in the country, and has therefore urged the Federal Government to fast track naming and the arrest of sponsors of terrorism in Nigeria.
This would curb growing insecurity challenges nationwide.
The group, comprising the APC Diaspora chairmen in no fewer that 13 countries, made this know in a statement jointly signed by its Chairman, Dr Phillip Ideawor, and Secretary, Mr Lawal Ayoola, on Thursday, May 13.
They believed that making the sponsors known would drastically reduce activities of terrorists who thrived on funds provided by such individuals to operate.
“Insecurity challenge in Nigeria has become so overwhelming that only a drastic action can curb it.
“No one involved should be spared considering the many lives that have been lost including that of security operatives who are fighting to protect the citizenry.
“We believe that as soon as funding for terrorism activities is stopped, it will naturally fizzle out.
“While we commend the Federal Government and its security apparatus for the job they are doing, we also wish to state that these efforts are being undermined by those who deliberately want to subvert the system to the detriment of the people of Nigeria,” the group said.
The APC forum, however, said that all secession agitators; and their sponsors should be picked without delay as it would send a note of warning to others.
They urged every well meaning Nigerian to rise above religion, tribe and political sentiments; to join governments in the fight against crimes; including terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, robbery and ritual killings among others.
