Former Senate President, David Mark has warned that Nigeria can get overrun by Boko haram insurgents if the threat is not tackled headlong.
Mark made the assertion on Thursday, July 16, 2015 in a goodwill message to Nigerian Muslims who join their colleagues worldwide to mark Eid-El-Fitri celebrations.
He said: “There is no hiding place any more. We must face the reality of a war situation. We either confront the monster headlong or get consumed.”
He regretted the spate of terror attacks in the country “especially in the northeast region that has led to avoidable deaths, made our people refugees in their fatherland and destroyed property worth millions of naira.
“I am convinced that we can over come our challenges including insecurity if we come together in a honest, sincere and committed manner.
“In this circumstances , we have no choice but to come together and confront our problem in a holistic way.”
