boko-haram-3A group, the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) has threatened violence if the planned amnesty for members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect is carried out.

YOWICAN, whose membership cut across the six geopolitical zones in the country, said that, rather than considering amnesty to the group, the Federal Government should immediately arrest Senators Ahmed Zanna and Buka Ibrahim for their alleged involvement in the activities of the violent sect.

The president of the religious group, Dr Simon Dolly, while addressing journalists in Abuja, warned that the “planned amnesty for murderers is potentially dangerous to Nigeria and Nigerians because it is a clarion call to more terrorism in Nigeria.” He said President Jonathan must be reminded that the fact that the Boko Haram sect insurgency had come to send jitters into the spine of the people would not confirm absolute power to unleash violence, stressing that “nobody has the monopoly of violence.”

He said: “In case the Federal Government is contemplating granting amnesty to willful murderers masquerading as political and religious insurgents who do not respect the basic tenets of humanity and the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Federal Government should be prepared to face perhaps more deadly and sophisticated response… We ask Mr President to go all out for these Boko Haram members by consolidating on the gains made by the various security agencies and to arrest those whose utterances and actions have implicated them.”

He further admonished President Goodluck Jonathan to be wary of some politicians in the North who felt they could use the issue of the Boko Haram insurgency to correct the anomalies they created while in power: “We appeal to the president not to be cowed by politicians and few misfits and naturally rebellious persons in the North who are attempting to use the Boko Haram insurgency as a bait to correct what they have failed to do while they were in power,” he stated.
