Eminent economist and former presidential aspirant, Prof. Pat Utomi, has urged President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to rise up to the challenge posed by dreaded sect, Boko Haram, by prosecuting those already arrested in connection with the activities of the group.
Utomi, who spoke against the backdrop of the lamentation of Jonathan and his promise to curb the activities of Boko Haram on Sunday, said the first step to take should be the prosecution of those already arrested for being members of the group.
Writing on the wall of his page on social network, Facebook, Utomi said: Mr. President, I urge you to speedily try those that have already been captured.
“What happened to Kabiru Sokoto and the others?”
Utomi also said the President should ensure the arrest of the sponsors of the sect.
He asked: “Why haven’t their sponsors been arrested?”
