GEJ Succumbs, To Consider Amnesty For Boko Haram

04 Apr

It has been revealed that President Goodluck Jonathan might have decided to consider granting amnesty to members of the Boko Haram sect as a means of ending the spate of raging violence across the region.

Reports emerging from the Vanguard have it that the president reached a deal with northern leaders to grant amnesty to members of the Boko Haram sect. Jonathan reportedly met for several hours on Wednesday night with members of the powerful Northern Elders’ Forum, NEF at the Presidential Villa to secure their support and cooperation towards ending the malevolent onslaught.

It was noted that the president specifically wanted an undertaking from the elders that they would impress upon the sect leaders and their followers to lay down their arms and embrace the peace, as a condition for offering the olive branch. Under the plan, the Federal Government is to set up an Amnesty Commission (AC), which would serve as a quasi-judicial body, to register and cater for repentant members of the sect and protect them from being harassed or intimidated by security agents.

According to a source at the meeting, “The AC will then set up modalities for any member of Boko Haram, who wants amnesty. Once a person signs up for amnesty, he is to be protected by the commission… It is our strong belief that the arrangement would give the government the leeway to find a lasting solution to the security crisis in the North,” the source said.

    Your survival rate can increase if it’s diagnosed early. It is also important that whatever you need to pay out out is still as part of your means.
