The leadership of Emerging Leaders Forum of Nigeria (ELFON) has openly responded to claims of Renowned Lawyer/Activist Femi Falana for stating that family members and Victims of Lekki shooting are afraid to speak up.
The national deputy President of ELFON; Amb. Babangida Ahmed Raddah noted that ELFON isn’t ignorant of the fact that some enemies of the nation are hell bent on taking Nigeria hostage at all cost. They promoted the peaceful and lofty ENDSARS Protest out of context just to weaken the Police Force and are in a consensual ploy to dampen the Nigerian Army with various degrees of blackmails.
Emerging Leaders Forum therefore urge Femi Falana and his bank -rollers to name the families of their acclaimed dead persons killed by Military Personnel with convincing proofs or keep quiet as ELFON won’t support any individual or person whose aim is to feed malicious and untrue story to the public for their personal gains.
Our investigation has revealed that the Army personnel shot mere fireworks into the air to enable them restore peace and free flow of vehicles and persons at the toll gate as experienced today.
Even with the high level of sabotage within and outside the Military formations, the Chief of Army staff; Lt.Gen. Tukur Yusuf Buratai is said to be ranking high as regards quick operational response to insecurity challenges and intelligence gathering supra.
ELFON also wish to inform the entire public that unverified stories poses a great threat to our dear nation; Nigeria as a whole and as such should not condoned by any progressive Nigerian, hence, let’s discard Fake and untrue claims. Nigeria must remain as One.
Amb. Babangida urged Femi Falana to play roles that will promote National Unity instead of making statements that are capable of fanning discord in the society. “Falana should provide the names of the families whose children or relatives where killed at the Lekki toll gate or keep quiet. The Nigerian Army under the present command of Lt.Gen. TY Buratai has been seen relatively working in line with the tenets of Nigeria’s democracy unlike in the past”, Babangida pointed
