An international civil rights organisation, Save Humanity Advocacy Centre (SHAC), Nigeria, has asked President Emmanuel Macron of France to order an immediate investigation into the alleged involvement of his country in the increasing wave of attacks by Boko Haram terrorists in the Lake Chad Basin.

The organisation premised its demand on the fact that “overzealous operatives and/or business executives may be operating below the radar to pass off personal agenda as national interest.”

The Executive Director of SHAC, Abubakar Idris Ibrahim, in a letter to the French President obtained by journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, said the outcome of the investigation must lead to immediate actions against persons found culpable of such gross threat to the world.

While recommending appropriate sanctions for countries that have acted against the internationally accepted position of not sponsoring terrorists or supporting terror organisations, Macron must firmly clarify the role of France in Boko Haram’s growing menace in the Lake Chad Basin region.

He said: “We therefore urge you, in your capacity as one of the influential leaders in the world, to immediately cause an investigation into the extent of France's involvement since it is possible that overzealous operatives and or business executives may be operating below the radar to pass off personal agenda as national interest.

“The outcome of the investigation must lead to immediate actions against persons found culpable of such gross threat to the world and sanctions for countries that have acted against the internationally accepted position of not sponsoring terrorists or supporting terror organisations. You must firmly clarify France’s role in Boko Haram's growing menace in the Lake Chad Basin region.

“Such behaviour is responsible for a situation where terrorists ride on their connection with operatives in the security circle to infiltrate countries in Europe and today flood the streets of western civilisation with blood. This reality is what gives people like us the slightest flicker of hope that France, at least not under you, can be involved in something as repulsive as being suggested.

“Our expectation is that France under your leadership must act fast to prove to the world that it is not using Boko Haram to wage an economic war against Nigeria.

“Thank you in anticipation of your intervention in this pressing matter as we hope that we can count on your principled resolve to the needful in the interest of humanity.”
