Buhari Offers ‘Unconditional’ Amnesty To Repentant Boko Haram Jihadists

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday declared that his government is ready to offer unconditional amnesty to members of the Boko Haram sect who are ready to lay down their arms.

The president stated this today when he received the 105 Dapchi schoolgirls who were released on Wednesday from Boko Haram captivity.

He said: “While further efforts are being made to secure the release of every abducted citizen in Nigeria, government is ever ready to accept the unconditional laying down of arms by any member of the Boko Haram group, who show strong commitment in that regard.”

“We are ready to rehabilitate and integrate such repentant members into the larger society. This country has suffered enough of hostility. Government is therefore appealing to all to embrace peace for the overall development of our people and the country.”

He added that government remains determined to bring back the Chibok schoolgirls in the insurgents’ custody.

“While parents of the Dapchi girls rejoice because of the reunion with their children, I want to appeal to the Chibok community never to lose hope or to despair,” the president further added.

Meanwhile, the Borno Government has directed the immediate closure of public boarding secondary schools, as part of measures to enhance security in schools.
