The Citizens Arise Movement of Nigeria (CAMN), has described the ceasefire agreement reached by the Federal Government and the Boko Haram insurgency group as another phase in the series of lies allegedly emanating from the Presidency since the kidnap of over 200 girls in Chibok local government area (LGA), in Borno state, in April this year.
Speaking to journalists during a rally to protest what it described as government’s inability to respond to fundamental national issues, a leader of the group, Dino Melaye said, “The so-called ceasefire agreement is another phase of a series of lies. Government said, when these girls were kidnapped, that they had returned safely home, remaining only 8 of them; that was a lie. Government also said that they knew where the girls were. That was also another lie; then they said that they had embarked on a series fire agreement and that the girls would hopefully return to their homes on Monday; this too is
another obvious lie.”
He said that the rally was aimed at protesting the failure of government to respond to certain issues, even after about a week since its deadline for the said responses elapsed. “Recall that on of September 30, 2014, CAMN had during its inauguration, given the Federal government two weeks ultimatum to respond to certain fundamental issues, including the arrest of suspected terror leaders in Nigeria, as well as top government functionaries indicted of corruption, among others.
The group called on the Nigerian Government to reiterate its stand against corruption by handing over corrupt officers and making its fight against insurgency, worthy of Nigerian’s trust.
