A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that Nigerian borders such as Sokoto and Lagos may be vulnerable to terrorists’ attacks.
The former minister feared that ISIS and ISWAP terrorists’ may attack Nigerian borders if Niger Republic and its allies opened up their corridors to them.
He warned that some of these terrorists have infiltrated Niger State and some States in the Southwest.
Tweeting, Fani-Kayode wrote: “If Niger Republic and her allies deliberately open a corridor for the elements of ISIS, AQIM, ISWAP etc to move into Benin and Togo, ECOWAS’ weakest link, then the whole of Nigeria’s western borders, from Sokoto to Lagos, would be vulnerable to terrorist attacks.
“Already some of the elements have penetrated into Niger State, around Borgu and Shiriro, very close to Benin Republic and some states in the South West of Nigeria.”
