MURIC warns FG to treat repentant Boko Haram members
There is news about the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC).
MURIC has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and the Nigerian army to treat Boko Haram insurgents who surrendered as brothers.
On Thursday, August 19, MURIC director, Professor Ishaq Akintola said that these Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters who are surrendering should be resettled and trained to enable them to cater for themselves and their families in the future.
The statement partly read; “Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters who are surrendering should be resettled and trained invocations that can enable them to cater for themselves and their families in future. Quick and meaningful resettlement will encourage the remaining insurgents and fighters to embrace peace.
“MURIC also appeals to the civilian population in Borno to manifest a spirit of accommodation and integration of remorseful insurgents and fighters. We warn against stigmatization of any sort. Returning fighters should be treated like brothers newly found. What they need is our understanding, cooperation, and kindness.”
