Fmr Chief Of Army Staff, Ihejirika Says Northern Elders Should Thank Him For Restoring Peace In Borno



Estimated Reading Time: <1

The immediate Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika (retd.) on Sunday carpeted members of the Northern Elders Forum.

The elders had vowed to drag Ihejirika and six others to the International Criminal Court of Justice in the Hague over their alleged role in last year’s violence in Bama, and Giwa Barracks all in Borno State.

The former army chief had been battling members of the fundamental Islamic sect, Boko Haram.

In an interview with state House correspondents shortly after a service he attended at the Aso Villa Chapel, he said the Northern elders’ statement was ill-conceived and probably based on misinformation.

He said rather than instituting a court case against him, the elders should be thanking him, other service chiefs and his men for their contributions to restoration of peace in the region if they were really elders.
