#iPGN: Australian Negotiator Davis Dares Sheriff To Sue Him

Dr. Stephen Davis, the Australian employed by the Federal Government to negotiate the release of the kidnapped schoolgirls from Chibok who last week named Ali Modu Sheriff as one of Boko Haram sponsors dared ex Borno governor to sue him.

The Australian, who had spent 4 months in Nigerian and exposed his life to extreme danger while negotiating with sect commander over Chibok girls release, recently claimed that Sheriff was involved in funding terrorist activities in the country. Outraged by the comments, the former governor described the scandalous allegations as baseless and vowed to initiate legal proceedings against the Australian. Sheriff also expressed his readiness to appear before any panel in to have his name cleared.

But speaking to newsmen on Friday, Davis said he stands by his allegations.

”He is worried, is he? He knows that if he goes to court, the evidence will be produced and he cannot escape justice. Let him go to court if that is what he wishes. It is his right to do so. He will not be able to avoid close examination and then the facts will be known.”

Davis appear undisturbed with ex-governor’s threats to sue him and also makes a sarcastic remark about the corruption in Nigeria’s justice system:

“Good luck to him if he decides to sue me in Australia. He can’t buy the judges here. Truth is not for sale. Australia has zero toleration for those who might sponsor terrorism. No one should be above the law whether in Australia or Nigeria. Justice must be served for every Nigerian killed, every girl and boy kidnapped, every girl raped, every person who has lost their home in the course of this violence. It seems to me the extent of involvement of every person named by Boko Haram as a sponsor should be closely and thoroughly examined by the correct authorities.”

He said that he is “very sure” of his facts as he spoke with Boko Haram commanders “individually and separately” over a stretch of time and they were consistent in their assertions of Sheriff’s sponsorship of the terrorist group.

“I read his defence on the media this week. Rather than come out as a statement of facts, it read like a novel of unconvincing fiction,” Davis said.

“In the last 48 hours, I have been in touch with some commanders of the group and they maintain their stand on Sheriff’s involvement.

“Sheriff’s ploy of casting himself as a victim is a poor attempt at disguising his sponsorship as alleged by the Boko Haram commanders.”
