The Attorney-General (AG) and Commissioner of Justice in Borno state, Kaka Shehu Lawan has called for the arrest of factional Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff.

According to Lawan, Sheriff, a former governor of the state, is responsible for the spread of terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

The AG made the call on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, while speaking at the ongoing Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Vanguard reports.

Lawan also said that Sheriff’s arrest would serve as consolation to the millions of people who have been displaced by the sect.

Sheriff has been frequently accused of sponsoring Boko Haram with his chief accuser being former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode who described the PDP Chairman as the “indisputable founder of Boko Haram”.

“On what basis can we accept as our National Chairman a man who established, encouraged, supported and nurtured an organisation that later metamorphosed into Boko Haram?” Fani-Kayode said in February after Sheriff emerged PDP Chairman.

Sheriff has however denied the allegations saying that he can’t be a member of Boko Haram because the sect killed three of his brothers.
