This has caused serious uproar and condemnation from angry Nigerians who are already tired of the way government seem to be treating arrested boko haram members.
We need to serious discuss restructuring now.
The north with its population of impoverished stack illiterates cannot continue to waste resources of the south on its misadventures.
Islamic extremism, high population of illiterates, insecurity are all products of foundations laid by northerners, the south should not keep paying for the sins of the North both with the resources of the south and the blood of young Southern soldiers.

Boko Haram members, if they truly repent and have zero intention of furthering their criminal profession can be encouraged by such Ministry, just as militants were rehabilitated. It worked for Niger Delta, so I see no reason it will not work for the weaponized-amaljiri North.

If Boko Haram can be defeated with Love since we can not defeat them in war, it is better. That way we dont keep getting defrauded by the Military Heads and their foreign arms-dealers counterparts who also supply arms to Boko Haram to create business opportunities.

N/B:
I noticed vituperation from hate generators who are mostly Christians. It bothers me that you are not like your Jesus.

Niger Delta militants got rehabilitated and there is relative peace so I see no reason Boko Haram rehabilitation will not bring peace. I did not compare the level of offence but the peace that can be achieved.

Argue with your Jesus who said you should love your enemies.

I haven't insulted anyone this month. Niger Delta militants problem was resolved through Amnesty (money) not love. They both share different ideology .

Boko Haram is the brain child of elites in the north and that's why it will never be easy to eliminate. They know the gain they all enjoy under boko Haram and that's why those northern hegemony will always support it codedly. Their secret will soon be exposed.

Please shut up if you have nothing to say...so book haram is now equivalent to militants? What are they fighting for @BH? What's going to be the source of this rehabilitation? I just hope you guys are going to fund them from the oil wells in d north. Rehabilitating people who derive joy in killing? This is an insult to all d soldiers who lost their lives fighting a war.


On what grounds did you use to measure the repentance? Rehabilitate them into what? Soldiers? BH fighters? Herdsmen or what?
