Northern Governors Forum (NGF) has called on security agencies to investigate an allegation that one of the governors in the region is a Commander of Boko Haram.
The allegation was made by a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia while being interviewed on an Abuja-based radio station on Monday.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Bako Lalong, in a statement on Wednesday, August 12 said the Forum is concerned about the weighty allegation made by Dr. Mailafia, saying it must be thoroughly investigated.
He said the Forum which has been working with the Federal Government, security agencies and religious leaders to defeat terrorism in the region, finds the allegation very weighty.
We as Northern Governors have met severally to discuss insecurity in the Northern Region and the nation at large where we did not only condemn the activities of terrorist groups such as Boko Haram, bandits, armed robbers, kidnappers and other criminals, but also engaged the President and all heads of security agencies in finding solutions to the problem.
To now say that one of our members is leading Boko Haram in the Nigeria is a serious allegation that cannot be swept under the carpet. We demand immediate and thorough investigation.
He also urged Dr. Mailafia and all citizens of the country with useful information on the activities of criminals and terrorist groups to assist security agencies and Governments at all levels with such intelligence for proper action.

The Governor said he hopes that the allegation is not an attempt to discourage the Northern Governors from putting their best into ending insecurity in the region.
He reiterated that the Forum does not, and would not support the activities of any criminal group, because they as Governors and their families are also not spared.
