A group, Ndigbo Cultural Society of Nigeria (NCSN) has described the Australian negotiator, Stephen Davis, as lacking in depth to carry out the assignment given to him by the Federal Government.
Consequently, the group has enjoined President Goodluck Jonathan to ensure refund of all monies paid for the undelivered assignment.
Mr. Davis, it will be recalled was engaged by the Federal Government to negotiate the release of the over 200 Chibok girls abducted over four months ago by the dreaded sect, Boko .
The group noted that rather than negotiate safe release of the girls, the negotiator chose to drop names of alleged sponsors of Boko Haram activities on television.
The group’s statement reads in part, “For the negotiator, Mr. Davis Stephen to say on Arise TV that Boko Haram leaders told him that certain names are their sponsors and he factor that as an intelligence report, underscores him as lacking in depth, when ordinary Nigerians knows that the hardest thing a free Boko haram leader would do is to mention their sponsors, while the easiest thing they would do is to mention their enemies as sponsors.
“Ndigbo Cultural Society of Nigeria (NCSN) persuades Federal Government not to relent in securing full refund of our hard earn monies from the failed negotiator as we urge individuals defamed by the Australian hostage negotiator, Davis Stephen unintelligent report. to sue him without hesitation.
“We remain grateful for the dogged fight our government is staging against terrorism and condemned the opposition party for playing politics in matters relating to terrorism, because terror is no man’s brother, sister or friend. Therefore the fight against terrorism, is a fight for all”.
