The former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke has called on the Federal government to thoroughly investigate the security forces in order to flush out the bad eggs amongst them.
He also stated that in order to achieve results in the fight against insurgency, the police and the soldiers especially the ones in North East should be motivated from time to time.
Duke who appeared on the Channels Television program alleged that Boko Haram Terrorist obtains their weapons from security operatives.
These were his words :
“Boko Haram insurgents who have been responsible for most heinous crimes, get their weapons from the security operatives.
“Most of the weapons used by Boko Haram come from our armoury, we will need to look into that. Why are we selling weapons to the enemy?”
“I think the soldiers in the Northeast are under-motivated, the government should motivate them.
“We need to task them on intelligence gathering. More intelligence than firepower.
“Also, by now, we need to develop a strategy on kidnap. Are the police properly motivated? I doubt it, and they don’t have enough weaponry.” The former governor said.
