The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has called on the federal government and the Nigerian military to treat repentant Boko Haram terrorists as brothers.
MURIC via a statement issued by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola on Thursday August 19, said these Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters who are laying down their weapons should be resettled and trained in vocations that can enable them to cater for themselves and their families in future.
The statement partly read;
“Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters who are surrendering should be resettled and trained invocations that can enable them to cater for themselves and their families in future. Quick and meaningful resettlement will encourage the remaining insurgents and fighters to embrace peace.
“MURIC also appeals to the civilian population in Borno to manifest a spirit of accommodation and integration of remorseful insurgents and fighters. We warn against the stigmatization of any sort. Returning fighters should be treated like brothers newly found. What they need is our understanding, cooperation and kindness.”
