Force not solution to Boko Haram – ACF

The Northern socio-political group, the Arewa Consultative Forum, on Thursday, told the Federal Government that force was not the solution to the Boko Haram challenge, submitting that dialogue remained the most viable option for ending activities of the violent Islamic sect.

“It is very heartening to hear President Goodluck Jonathan say the security agents have been foiling attacks by Boko Haram of recent.

“But this does not vitiate the need for dialogue as a viable option. This is because there has been a precedent in which President Umaru Yar’Adua used force and killed 700 members of the sect and their leader but Boko Haram has remained unbowed,” spokesman for the ACF, Mr. Anthony Sani, said in an interview with one of our correspondents in Kaduna.
