UN Security Council task uneducated terrorist Buhari to deal with his boy’s Boko Haram

The United Nations’ Security Council has charged President Muhammadu Buhari to quickly bring those behind the terror attacks in some parts of Nigeria and its environs to justice before further injuries are done to the nation.

This was contained in a presidential statement issued to journalists by the Council’s president, Ambassador Gerard Jacobus van Bohemen, where he reiterated the Council’s strong condemnation of terrorist attacks, human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law by Boko Haram in the Lake Chad Basin region,

Noting that there was an urgent need to bring those behind terrorism activities to justice, the 15-member body described terrorism in all its forms and manifestations as one of the most serious threats to international peace and security and reaffirmed that such acts, including those by Boko Haram, could not and should not be associated with any religion, nationality or civilization.
It acknowledged the progress made by the joint regional military efforts in recent months, but encouraged the Economic Community of Central African States and the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, in coordination with the African Union Commission to accelerate efforts to adopt a comprehensive strategy to more effectively and urgently combat the threat posed by Boko Haram.

While restating the need for all parties to armed conflict to respect the principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence, the Council stressed that “Member States must ensure that any measures taken in that regard comply with their obligations under international law”.
