The report which was published by highly respected international media house, Wall Street Journal has continued to generate reactions. Sani, a human rights activist turned politician, gave his opinion on the issue, writing like a poet.

His words: “Let not our heroes be buried in the dark. Let not our heroes be buried without their deserved drums of honour.



“Let not our heroes be buried without the trumpet of our gratitude. Let not
our heroes be buried without the comets crowning their valor. Let not the weeds
overran their tombs.” Meanwhile, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential
candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 polls, has demanded
that the matter should be probed by a judicial commission of inquiry. The
former vice president made the call in a statement released by his media office
on Thursday, August 1, describing the issue as a national emergency that should
shock all statesmen and leaders of thoughts into action to save the country.

He expressed shock that such a thing could happen under a democratic
government, insisting that Nigerians deserve to know the truth of the matter.
He further advised that in order to investigate and report to Nigerians the
true state of the war on terror, the panel of inquiry should be made up of
distinguished former military officers. (legit).
