President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration is ready to give unconditional amnesty to Boko haram Islamists willing to lay down arms.
Buhari made the declaration at the Presidential Villa on Friday while receiving the freed Dapchi schoolgirls, Daily Trust writes.
The president called on security agents to ensure that there is no repeat of students’ abduction in the country, saying they should not hesitate to deal with those seeking political gains from the abduction.
This comes after the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura, had said that the social media and utterances of those with little knowledge on the matter almost marred efforts to rescue the girls.
The DSS boss also said that almost all the freed Dapchi schoolgirls had one skin infection or the other for not bathing for one month.
It is not yet clear if either faction of Boko Haram is ready to lay down their arms as they continue to spring surprise attacks despite the Federal Government’s claim that they’d been defeated.
More to come…
