Boko Haram Can't Disclose Its sponsors , Davies lied, says Shehu Sani
President of Civil Right Congress, Comrade Shehu Sani, on Monday dismissed claims by the self acclaimed hostage negotiator about the possibility of Boko Haram naming its sponsors.
The Australian Dr. Stephen Davis had alleged in the media that some top commenders of the sect, told him General Azubuike Ihejirika, and Modu Sheriff were sponsors.
Reacting to the Australian allegation on his facebook wall on Monday, Sani who also facilitated the meeting between former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the group in Maiduguri in 2011 said it was impossible for genuine Boko Haram members to disclose to any negotiator the sect's source of funding.
Sani, who dismissed the allegation said, “I have been asked by many people to confirm whether the statement credited to the Australian negotiator about the involvement of some people in the Boko Haram insurgency is true or false.
“The truth and the little I know is that it is very impossible for genuine Boko Haram top rank members to disclose to any negotiator their source of funding.
“Any negotiator who deviates from his acclaimed role of a broker and tried to seek information about their source of funding will likely be treated as a spy.
“How logical is it for the group to be sponsored by persons they consistently despised and targeted?
“The government has denied any link with the mediator and I believe the group will make their statement on the issue,” Sani stated.
