The Network of Buhari Supporters Worldwide (NBSW), has called on security agents to probe Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno state and his predecessor, Senator Kassim Shettima, over instigated violence in the state.
The group made this known at a press conference Lagos following the reaction of some Borno state residents on the president’s visit to Maiduguri.
A statement signed by the national coordinator of the NBSW, Atawodi Agada, said the supporters of the president are disgusted at the manner the president was greeted.
Agada alleged that the state governor and his predecessor are behind the show of shame by residents against the president.
He alleged that the action of the governor may not be disconnected from the fact that President Buhari is aware of his treacherous promotion of conditions that encourages activities inimical to the state.
Agada also said that the governor clearly lacked the capacity to discern right from wrong and were out up to it by those with interests.
He urged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to investigate the role by its members who booed the president during his visit to Maiduguri.
We are demanding for such investigation because information at our disposal suggests that some persons who were not comfortable with the indictment of the state government and local leaders for the festering of terrorism had to put out the embarrassing show,” Agada said.
He also called for a thorough investigation into the incident while urging the pro-Buhari group urged the president not to be deterred.
Agada said: “We, therefore, call on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to investigate the role by its members who booed Mr President during his visit to Maiduguri irrespective of how highly placed they are in the national hierarchy.”
