The Primate of the Anglican Communion, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, has cautioned that for peace to reign in Nigeria, the Boko Haram Amnesty Committee recently inaugurated by the president must prevail on the sect to stop killing Christians and destroying their places of worship.

Okoh said in a position paper entitled ‘The rough edges of the amnesty proposition’, released by the Anglican church that the rush to grant amnesty to the Boko Haram sect without any form of truth and reconciliation, which he noted, should have preceded amnesty calls for great concern.

The Anglican Communion noted that although the motive of the Federal Government was to achieve peace in the north, ignoring the first steps that should have been taken would only result in the attainment of what it called ‘half peace’.

“If the Federal Government goes ahead through the amnesty committee to make peace on BH’s terms, it would have inadvertently and effectively banned Christians and Christianity from the North. In the amnesty committee, who will speak for the right of the church, not to be tolerated, but as Nigerian Christians to exist side by side with Islam and Muslims, build churches, worship freely, move about freely without being hunted down with all sorts of weapons?

“Will the amnesty committee ensure that Christians are not merely tolerated in the north but are allowed to live abundant life as Muslims as Christians do in other parts of the country?”
