The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has appealed to the federal government and the Nigerian army to treat Boko Haram insurgents who surrendered as brothers.
The group in a statement released by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola on Thursday August 19, also said that these Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters who are surrendering should be resettled and trained in vocations that can enable them to cater for themselves and their families in future.
professor ishaq Akintola said:
“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.”
