The Nigerian ambassador to Argentina, Peru, Paraguay and Chile, Jonah Mkpuruka, has accused desperate politicians of sponsoring killings across the country.
Mkpuruka who made the accusation at the APC headquarters in Abakaliki however, stopped short of mentioning any name associated with the alleged killings.
Daily Trust in a report on Wednesday June 13, states that the ambassador told stakeholders and members of the party that the sponsors of the killings were not comfortable with the anti-corruption drive of the Buhari administration.
He said: "The killings you are hearing, they are being sponsored by desperate people who are not satisfied with the loots they have made; they want to come back. They are not comfortable with the anti-corruption programme of Mr President.
“They want to make sure they boot him out at all cost. But I want to tell you that he is returning to put this country on the right path.
“In 2015, one of us here won election and he lost his result on transit. This time around, from here to Abuja there is nothing to disturb us in delivering our result. We are going to win and we are not going to lose our result on transit again.”
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, June 12, said Boko Haram insurgents have been degraded and that his administration is taking steps to completely put an end to insurgency in the country.
Buhari told members of the diplomatic corps in Abuja when breaking the Ramadan fast that Nigeria will continue to collaborate with its neighbours under the Multilateral Joint Task Force (MJTF) to check the movement and operations of terrorists across borders, Daily Trust reports.
The president said he was pleased that normalcy was gradually being restored in some affected areas.
He stated that his regime had also taken practical steps to reposition the Nigerian economy on the path of sustainable growth and development.
