May 9, 2013 – Sultan Of Sokoto Begs Boko Haram Terrorists To Accept Amnesty Deal For Peace

The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), led by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has appealed to the Boko Haram sect to end its killings and accept the amnesty initiative.

The NSCIA made the appeal in a communique issued by its new scribe, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, at the end of a meeting in Kaduna.

The council condemned the Baga and Bama massacres, which it described as heinous crimes against humanity, and called on the Federal Government to immediately set up a judicial commission of inquiry to ensure that justice is done. It also frowned at the continual failure of the state and Federal Governments to implement the white paper of their commissions/panels of inquiry on various ethno-religious crises and conflicts in the country.

“The council calls on the Federal Government to act immediately to restore normalcy and ensure enduring peace and security by resettling and protecting Muslims that have been unjustly displaced in crisis ridden areas including Tafawa Balewa in Bauchi State, scores of villages in Wase local government in Plateau State as well as in Southern Kaduna where Muslims had been massively massacred sequel to the 2011 general elections.”

It also urged all Nigerians to join hands with the Federal Government and other well-meaning Nigerians regardless of religion or geo-political affiliations, to fight corruption.

With reference to the controversial issue of the hijab, the council said unequivocally that it is a religious obligation for Muslim ladies, and that government agencies and private organizations should forthwith stop the harassment and persecution of Muslim ladies on the account of observing it.

Text of the communiqué:
“The council calls on the insurgents to accept the amnesty that may be offered by the Federal Government and stop further spilling of blood and wanton destruction of property. The Federal Government should, as a matter of urgency, call to order those making inflammatory statements on the forthcoming elections so that the fragile peace in the country will not be jeopardized.

“The council strongly condemns the Baga and Bama massacre as heinous crimes against humanity, and calls upon the Federal Government to immediately set up a judicial commission of inquiry to ensure that justice is done. The council frowns at the continual failure of the state and Federal Government to implement the white paper of their commissions/panels of inquiry on various ethno-religious crises and conflicts in the country.

“The council urges all Nigerians to join hands with the Federal Government and other well-meaning Nigerians regardless of religion or geo-political affiliations, to fight corruption. The council states unequivocally that hijab is a religious obligation for Muslim ladies, as such; government agencies and private organizations should forthwith stop the harassment and persecution of Muslim ladies on the account of observing it.”

  1. Those homicidals should better accept the amnesty now,or time shall come when they would even appeal for the amnesty and be granted not,this will be when Nigeria would be given back to our (heros) military, and not this bloody civilian that everybody is playing over their intelegence. Beware of the end! blood suckers (Boko Haram)

  5. Boko haram, you want 72 virgin women in the Islamic Aljanna but you don’t want to die, you running from JTF. Who told you getting 72 virgins is easy? JTF kodus to you, and may God help and protect you and all Nigerians in Jesus name amen. Pls JTF, if you caught/arrested these Islamic Jihadists, kill them immediately. The work of their god “allaah” will not stop till they all die and no one could again attack Barracks and Churches. If you arrest these Boko haram and take to Prison, their leaders who are busy calling Federal Government to grant amnesty to them will find a way of releasing them so that, they can continue working for their allaah to stop the spread of God’s word. These Islamic leaders you see, they are behind the Islamic groups. Presently, these Islamic Leaders are helping the Boko haram by not selling land or granting “C of O” to Christians when they want to build Churches in a dominated Muslim areas or States, even if the lands belong to the Christians.
