Boko Haram: Nigerian Army Backs Amnesty

Nigerian Army LogoThe Nigerian Army has backed calls for amnesty for members of Boko Haram sect.

Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Ibrahim Attahiru at a news conference in Abuja on Wednesday, told journalists that exploring amnesty option does not undermine the competence of the military just as he disagreed with the view that amnesty is government’s last resort due to the failure of security operatives to end the insurgency.

Brigadier General Attahiru said as part of measures to check the rising wave of insecurity in the country, the army authorities have deployed quick response patrol groups to patrol designated areas nationwide, establish military presence along the highways while assuring Nigerians of the Army’s commitment to fighting terrorism in the country.
