…says Kidnappers use ransom money to buy weapons

By Ibrahim HassanWuyo

The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has raised alarm that camels carrying lot of baggage’s were crossing Nigeria’s borders into the country on a daily basis.

This was contained in a statement titled, “Our borders and insecurity” made available to journalists on Thursday by the ACF’s national chairman, Audu Ogbeh.

He said the forum was informed of the disturbing development by some of ACF’s members from Sokoto and Zamfara states.

“And they observed that nobody checks their baggage and nobody knows what is being brought into Nigeria,” he said.

Mr. Ogbe alleged that ransom money were  being used by terrorists to buy illegal arms,stressing “It is clear now from what we know that as victims pay ransoms to the kidnappers ,the money is instantly converted to more sophisticated weapons and instruments of death by the kidnappers.”

According to him, ” the forum observed that large consignments were being transported into the country on daily basis unchecked.

The forum  is worried that this kind of situation will persist for a long time.”

“At the last meeting of our National Executive Council, NEC, in October 2020, our members, particularly from Sokoto and Zamfara, reported that large consignments of Camels were crossing our borders into Nigeria with a lot of baggage on their backs on a daily basis.

“And they observed that nobody checks their baggage and nobody knows what is being brought into Nigeria.

“The question Arewa Consultative Forum would like to ask the security agencies is what are the Camels carrying and where they are heading?

“The ACF is alarmed that this kind of situation should persist at a time when weapons of all kinds are coming into our country and worsening the climate of terror and national uncertainty.

“It is clear now from what we know that, as victims pay ransoms to the kidnappers the money is instantly converted to more sophisticated weapons and instruments of death by the kidnappers.

“The capacity of these terrorists is rising by the day and we are not far from the moment when the terrorist will become better armed than our accredited security agencies.

“The ACF wants to alert the government about this situation, if they are not aware of it and if they are aware of it, to ask what they are doing about it.

“Already, it is speculated that weapons as dangerous as Rocket Propelled Grenades RPGs, and anti-aircraft guns are part of the cargo ferried by camels freely into our country from neighbouring countries.

“It will do the nation a great deal of good to deal with this situation immediately. The ACF is deeply worried,” he said.

These are the type of statements that I categorize as "FORCED TRUTH".
 
I call it forced truth because the ACF Chairman is not a Fulani, and his own people would likely be the first victims of these terrorists, before they head anywhere else in Nigeria. He had no choice than to raise this alarm as loud as possible.

BTW, Note an important point he made about these massive movement of arms across the borders of the North:
NOBODY KNOWS WHAT WEAPONS ARE BEING SMUGGLED IN.

In other words, the security agencies that should be focusing on this historically terrorist part of Nigeria have turned blind eyes and are focusing elsewhere.

This is exactly why Eastern Security Network (ESN) had to come into existence, and why every Eastern Nigeria person of sound and noble mind (not the idiotic cowards and slaves masquerading as governors in the East) would always thank God for the emergence of the ESN.
