Former Lagos State Police Commissioner, Alhaji Abubakar Tsav, has said that any northerner conniving with others to thwart the efforts of the region in actualising the dream of having the presidency come 2015, should be placed on surveillance.
According to him, punitive measures should be meted out to such people as deemed fit by the Forum of Northern Elders.
The former police commissioner said this yesterday in a chat with National Mirror in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
He said the 400 northerners alleged to have been sponsored to thwart the ambition of the north to reclaim the presidency would soon suffer the wrath of the northern oligarchy, if the claims are found out to be true.
He added that appropriate sanctions must, as a matter of necessity, be spelt out to those that have mortgaged their conscience for peanuts to work against northern agenda ahead of the 2015 elections, stressing that whoever is involved in the project will receive appropriate sanctions according to the role played.
The former police boss said efforts are being intensified to fish out those 400 northern indigenes mentioned in the romance to return President Goodluck Jonathan by 2015 come rain or sunshine, stressing that these people will never go scot free if at the end they are fished out.
He said it is not a surprise to learn that 400 northerners have been bribed to conspire against their people, adding that even through their body movements; you could know those who can sell their own parents over peanuts of money, wondering if they ever remember what the north has done for them.
He lamented the sufferings of the people of the north with most industries shut down, leading to unemployment, underdevelopment and most of all, murdering of its people coupled with insecurity, which he says could have been purposely influenced to destabilise the region both socially and economically.
He recalled with nostalgia that before the oil discovery in the Niger Delta, the north has made useful contribution towards enhancing the unity and economic development of the nation but that today, the north is being looked down upon.
