Bokomasked

The newly-installed Bishop of Akure Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Reverend Simeon Borokini, yesterday, challenged members of the Islamist sect, Boko Haram, to reveal their identity first before amnesty could be discussed.

In his argument, Borokini stated that as long as they remained faceless, “it will be difficult for the Federal Government to offer amnesty to a faceless group.”

Borokini however, decried the level of insecurity in Nigeria now, as a result of the activities of the group. “The people should come out and show their faces as this would aid meaningful dialogue that anybody may want to have with them,” he said.

The new bishop of the Akure diocese, who was installed last week, regretted that many lives had been lost to the activities of the group. He therefore asked government to take a decisive step to stop the group from further killing of innocent Nigerians.

Borokini also called for a change in the priorities set by Nigerian leaders, noting that this had affected the peace of the country.

“The peace in the country has been affected by the priorities set by the leaders and the people. The country’s priority has been wrongly set because God has been neglected for crude oil, materialism and worldliness which have resulted in insecurity in Nigeria.”

The church, according to him will do its part by revamping its prison ministry and hospital outreaches to further give hope to the people.

A chaplain would be appointed to take charge of the frontier ministry to preach the message of hope to the prisoners who he says needs to be encouraged.

Borokini also promised to ensure a spiritual and enabling environment that would help foster unity of members of the diocese. “We have an enormous task ahead of us, we must build our broken walls,” he said.

“We must come together as one. United we stand as a family and divided we fall. Akure Anglican diocese is one.”

  • For crying out loud y would anybody called boko haram a faceless one,a body that has a media spokesman and comes to the media to speak u still call that faceless.amnesty is not even d solution to the problem but making sure that poverty is alleviated in the northern states.
