Borno State government over the  weekend raised the alarm over a systematic decimation of the membership of the All Nigerian Peoples Party, (ANPP) in Borno  under the guise of Boko Haram attacks.

Borno and Yobe states, both controlled by ANPP have suffered the most casualties in human and properties since the resurgence of the violent attacks of the religious sect.

Information Commissioner of the state, Mr. Inuwa Bwala told newsmen in Abuja that of all politicians that have been killed since the Boko Haram insurgency began, only members of the ANPP have been target of the attacks and maintained that some people have been sponsoring assassinations and wrecking havoc in the state and using Boko Haram as cover up for their nefarious activities.

According to him “what many people do not tend to understand is the fact that, there is more to the whole crisis than just an insurgency. While we cannot deny that we have that ideological problem that has snowballed into violence, greater number of the incidents these few days are purely cases of political intimidation from our opponents. If you look at the roll call of people affected, you will agree with me that there is a serious political underpin.

He said “We are also aware that armed robbers and other related crimes have often found a good alibi in the Boko Haram situation to wreck havoc on the state. The danger in all these is the possible extinction of our future productive force and the future effect can be better imagined".

Mr. Bwala stated that “as a government, we are conscious of the fact that our citizens are being exposed to unwarranted dangers, whereby we have taking up arms against each other. While some people have hijacked the crisis and converted it into a political tool, we cannot on our part afford the luxury of playing politics with the lives of our people".

“We believe that, in the fullness of time, the truth about the whole thing will come out, and our state and indeed Nigeria will be freed from this entanglement," he said.

Some notable ANPP chieftains that had been killed at different time in the state included Mr. Awana Ngala, Chairman ANPP and cousin to Ali Sheriff; Mr. Modu Fannami Gubio, ANPP gubernatorial candidate also a cousin to Ali Sheriff; Mr. Goni Modu Sheriff, younger brother to Mr. Ali Sheriff; Mr. Lawan Yarayi, former Chairman Kukawa local government; Mr. Lawan Kabu, former Chairman Damboa local government; Mr. Kadiri Kaza, former Chairman Mongumo local government.

Others are Mr. B.K also former Chairman Monguno local government; Mrs. Bayayi, female Councilor Maiduguri Metropolitan; Mr. Audu Ali (Datti) Councilor Mr. Sandari Maiduguri Metropolitan; Mr. Mustapha Fulawa, a close friend of Sheriff; Mr. Bukar Goni Kolo, a close friend of Sheriff; Mr. Isa Modu Ngaram, General Manager Borno Housing Corporation; Mr. Zannah Mallam Gana, Commissioner for Justice; Mr. Mamman Shuwa, a retired army general and ANPP Board of Trustees, and party elder
