Lagos — Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, Monday, urged Nigerian youths to give support to the Federal Government in its effort to combat Boko Haram's bombings.
At a news conference in Lagos, the AYCF President, Alhaji Yerima Shettima, said the future of the youth would be jeopardised if the bombings were not stopped.
He condemned the Easter Sunday bombing in Kaduna, which killed about 30 people.
"This is a dastardly act against humanity and must be seen as such," Yerima said.
He said the Boko Haram sect intended to destroy Nigeria, especially the North, adding that the group should be stopped through the collective efforts of all Nigerians.
"This is the most critical period in our history; we must not leave our fate in the hands of security agencies alone. Every youth, with the interest of humanity at heart, must rise up to this challenge. Emphasis must be on reporting suspicious persons and movements around us," he said.
