BOKO HARAM WON’T ATTACK AGAIN IF PAID TRILLIONS OF NAIRA BUDGETED TO FIGHT CRIME, SAYS ROCHAS OKOROCHA

The former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha, has spoken concerning the issue of insecurity bedeviling Nigeria and possible solutions to security challenges. In a recent interview on TVC News, Okorocha said alternative routes could solve the problem rather than spending so much on military equipment and crime fighting.

Addressing the topic, Okorocha said, “Long term measures to solve the issue of insecurity are to address the problem posed by out-of-school children now, and also engage the youths in our productive sector. We have to change our style in the immediate aspect by empowering the communities to have a community government council. If the money spent by the federal government was spent judiciously on addressing insecurity, Boko Haram would not be a topic today. Only 5% of the funds released to fight Boko Haram terrorists are used to fight the terrorists, while 95% are lost in transit.

He continued, “We should empower the communities and support them with the military if we are serious about fighting insecurity. I find it funny that thousands of Boko Haram fighters are chasing over 200 million people. It is more of an insider fight than an outsider fight. Trillions of Naira have been budgeted to fight crime since I became a senator, and even if the money is given to the Boko Haram terrorists, they will stop. If we had a way to transfer that money budgeted to Boko Haram terrorists, they would go home and never fight again. No amount of ammunition or bomber jets purchased can end Boko Haram, as it has become a business venture for some people. Boko Haram would stop attacking for 100 years if they were paid the money used to buy these bomber jets.
