President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday offered amnesty to repentant Boko Haram terrorists.

He made the offer at the Presidential Villa Abuja when he met with the released Dapchi schoolgirls.

The schoolgirls with their parents had arrived the State House press gallery at exactly 11:40am and later met at the Council Chamber some minutes past noon.

“While further efforts are being made to secure the release of every abducted citizen in Nigeria, government is ever ready to accept the unconditional laying down of arms by any member of the Boko Haram group who shows strong commitment in that regard.

“We are ready to rehabilitate and integrate such repentant members into the larger society.

“This country has suffered enough of hostility. Government is, therefore, appealing to all to embrace peace for the overall development of our people and the country.”

The President stated that a total of 107 students previously abducted have been unconditionally released by their abductors.

According to the president, the unconditional release of the girls signified his administration’s commitment to the security and wellbeing of all Nigerians.
