WORLDWIDE HUNT FOR BIN LADEN BEGINS
By James Oni

The Global Peace Movement has started a worldwide hunt for the prime suspect in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States of America (USA), Osama Bin Laden.

This was announced during a peaceful procession to commemorate the attacks by the president-general if the movement, Mr. Mike Uyi, in Lagos.

"As I am talking with you, the hunt is going on. It may not be known to many that the Global Peace Movement has agents all over the world. We are very solid in all countries. In the USA, we are there. In Britain, we are doing fine. In the Middle East, we are strong. We are in all corners of the universe," he said.

He also said, "But in hunting for this man, we are not going to carry guns. We are not going to be violent about it. It is not only when you use force that you can arrest somebody. You can make many achievements through the use of peace. This is our method. We are going to catch Osama Bin Laden alive. He cannot run away from justice."

"Though our hunt for him is going to be world wide, but our concentration will be on Islamic countries because he is likely to be hiding in one of them. But one thing is certain, he will be caught," he said.

The procession, led by the president-general, started at Tafawa Balewa Square and moved on to the America Embassy and the British High Commission before it ended at Tafawa Balewa Square again.

All participants held lit candles, and this brought about sympathy for the victims of the attacks and their relations as onlookers wept and rained curses on Osama Bin Laden and his supporters.
