SCORES of ex-militants and youth activists in the Niger Delta region yesterday described as a “miscarriage of justice” the refusal of the Federal Government to arrest and prosecute members of the Boko Haram sect over the rising spate of bomb attacks in Abuja and other parts of the North.
The group, under the aegis of the Network of Freedom Fighters in Niger Delta (NIDDEMCOW), led by a former President of the Ijaw Youth Council, Comrade Nengi James, said the rising cases of bomb attacks and killings by Boko Haram has shown that Henry Okah is just being unjustly persecuted by the Federal Government.
A statement issued yesterday in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, by James declared that failure of the Federal Government to commence criminal proceedings against the Boko Harm sect and its members would force the youths of the region to demand for the release of Okah from South African jail.
