A former Assistant Director of the State Security Service, Mr Dennis Amachree has warned the Federal government to take decisive action on militant groups springing up across the country, else the country will soon become ungovernable.
Mr Amachree who gave the warning while speaking on Channels TV morning show program Sunrise Daily, said the militant’s groups across the country are growing big and getting emboldened by the day.
PlatinumPost had reported how influential northern Islamic cleric, Ahmad Abubakar Gumi, has been meeting with bandits trying to convince to their arms and embrace peace.
“Today we have had all kinds of regional problems that have come to us, in the Niger/ Delta we have despoliation of the environment by oil companies where you have the militancy coming up. In the North East now where Boko Haram started where Yusuf their leader was killed until it degenerated until we have what we have now.
“Again, remember that what is happening in Zamfara now is another situation where if we don’t look at it properly because when you look at what is happening around the country you see pockets of militancy everywhere. Which are growing by the day that means, I can give you a projection now that if we don’t do anything about it, these militants groups across the country are going to get so big that they will now make government ungovernable and the country will become ungovernable as well.
“Those ungoverned spaces have been occupied by these guys their presence is known because I learnt there are some military stations just outside the place that are staying in Zamfara state and when the who are negotiating with them went in there. They said they don’t want some certain people inside, of course, they have to leave some people like Gumi, the governor and the other people there.
“So, when you have a situation like this was fully armed seven hundred people are in your ungoverned space in your country. I think is time to act on it, whether you are going to attack or negotiate with them is okay because it happened in the Niger/Delta region.” Amachree advised.
