Bishop predicts other states Boko Haram may overrun

The co-Chairman, Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, Bishop Sunday Onuoha, has warned that the Boko Haram insurgency in the North-East may spread to Bauchi, Taraba, Gombe, Adamawa states, if the present security challenges in the country are left untackled.
Onuoha said this at the 2nd IDFP General Assembly which held yesterday in Abuja with the theme: ‘2019 general elections and national security: The role of interfaith communities.’
The cleric specifically said the kidnappings in the South-West, the armed robbery and militancy in the South-East and South-South also needed to be addressed urgently.
He said the perceived lopsidedness in the leadership of the security forces should be addressed, pointing out that the security situation during the 2015 elections was not as bad as it is today.
He said, “In Borno and Yobe States, the Boko Haram insurgency has taken a dangerous dimension, leading to increasing number of dead armed forces and Mobile Police personnel as well as the destruction of their equipment.
“This sad situation could spread to states like Bauchi, Taraba, Gombe, Adamawa and Taraba leading to the displacement of thousands of people who will seek refuge in over-crowded Internally Displaced Persons’ camps.”
The Bishop enjoined the faith community to pray for the success of the forthcoming elections and stability of the country while harping less on predictions of possible winner or loser of the presidential election.
“We have over time built more powerful individuals while our institutions remain weak. Those who have presented themselves for elective positions should be willing to accept the outcome of the election,” Onuoha stressed.
