The BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, has asked the President Muhammadu Buhari led government to tell Nigerians the relationship it has with Boko Haram insurgents.
The group’s spokesperson, Sesugh Akume said this when he questioned the rationale behind granting amnesty to repentant Boko Haram insurgents.
The group stated that such amnesty would be be detrimental because those freed in the past later backtracked and unleashed terror on the people.
It added that the government lacks any strategy for preventing freed terror suspects from going back to terrorism.
The group said, “We have evidence of this. What is the strategy behind declaring amnesty for terrorists and releasing those in custody and allowing them to go back to what they were doing?
“The Minister of Information said they had a ceasefire arrangement with Boko Haram and they ought not to have abducted the Dapchi girls, so they had a moral burden to return the girls. You are talking about terrorists and morality?
“It seems as if the rest of us understand the terrorists differently from how the government understands them. They need to come down from their high horse and explain to us what is going on.
“How can the government be talking about Boko Haram and morality?
“Those they released in the past went back and unleashed more terror, so how are they going to prevent this from happening again?”
