The Action Democratic Party has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to order an investigation into the allegation that international terrorist organisations, ISIS and Islamic State’s West Africa Province, “are building camps in the Southern parts of the country”.
The National Publicity Secretary of ADP, Prince Adelaja Adeoye, made this known in a press statement on Sunday.
ADP recalled an allegation by some prominent cultural leaders that over 500 power motorbikes, were sighted in the thick forest, around the Oke-Ogun axis of Oyo State.
It noted that “this area is a connector to many international borders, which could have made it possible for the terrorists to invade the country.
“President must take urgent steps in deploying military and other security forces to the areas where these terrorists are, in order to secure the lives and property of Nigerians.
“As a party, with concern for the security of Nigerian citizens, we immediately call on the President to do the needful, and not watch, until the situation becomes ugly. Advance technology such as GPS mapping and other territorial scanning system, can be deployed to aid investigation, to know which points exactly these terror groups are building their camps.
“It is even less expensive to take out and push the group back at this time, especially now that they are just forming, and not wait until they begin to unleash terror on the people, just as Boko Haram is doing in the North East.”
