Amnesty For Boko Haram: Sultan Goofed – CAN

ORITSEJAFOR-ayoThe Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday rejected suggestion by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, that members of the Boko Haram be offered amnesty.
This is contained in a statement issued and signed in Abuja by the CAN General Secretary, Dr Musa Asake.
The association said that it wondered the kind of amnesty proposed by the monarch and advised the Federal Government to reject such suggestion.
It, however, welcomed the idea of a stakeholders’ meeting to genuinely discuss the issues that concern the development of the country.
“We wonder the kind of amnesty contemplated by the Sultan, this is why we are puzzled. We therefore say categorically that we reject any offer of amnesty for members of the Boko Haram.
“We ask government to do same. One group of people cannot continue to pay the price for one Nigeria. We must sit together as brothers and discuss issues,’’ the statement added.
It said that for the talk about amnesty to hold water, the group must first of all renounce their extreme ideology and embrace the cease fire plan. (NAN)


  1. Christ preaches forgiveness, as christians n leaders, forgive is the key word in our national unity so CAN try show some love Christ said we should forgive our enemies 70 X 70 times. Hence AMNESTY is d only way we can show love to boko haram n Boko haram spirit(evil spirit) will leave those boys alone cos evil can not stand LOVE.

  2. How can any reasonable person ever contemplate amnesty 4 boko haram. Most ridiculous is d opinion of some lunatics dat CAN has link with Boko Haram, do u think through ur anus?.. A group of murderers & butchers whose stock in trade is destruction of innocent lives & properties as BH must b dealt with. Granting dem amnesty will amount 2 a great dishonour to d memory of their victims besides what precedence would mr president set if he grants dem amnesty? They’re a criminal organisation that shd b identified and crushed.

  3. Kuran says: “any profession muslim, has greatly lost at death, both here and eternity” dis they knw n they ar unleashing terror. They will rot in hell with dia sponsors
