If fillers emerging from a faction of the dreaded Boko Haram sect is anything to go by, the Federal Government’s proposed plan to grant amnesty to the terrorist group may well be heading for the rocks. This is as the group has reportedly rejected the proposed amnesty.
Reports have it that the group, speaking through its spokesman, Abu Daram, to the Hausa service of the BBC stated that their reason for not accepting is that they do not recognise democracy as a form of government. This group which appears to be a faction opposed to the group which had asked for amnesty said it does not agree with the constitution of the Federal Government, stressing that justice could only be found in the Quran.
Also, it has been reported that only the Shura Council of Jama’atu Ahl-Sunnati Lil Da’awati Wal Jihad, also known as Boko Haram, can decide whether the sect will accept the proposed amnesty being advanced by Nigeria’s government. The council is led by Imam Abubakar Ibn Shekau.
