Boko Haram: Crime Should Be Punished, Not Pampered By Oke Umurhohwo by OEPHIUS(m): 9:55am On Jul 30
You will probably have read the news. It is on almost every news channel and the thought that something like that happened, repulsed me. Or, how do you bring yourself to the news that over 600 ‘repentant’ Boko Haram combatants graduated in Gombe?

Yes, you heard me right. People who took up arms against the country, and possibly maim and kill innocent Nigerians and soldiers and destroy properties are now free. Not only that, but they also get to enjoy public resources towards rehabilitation until they are graduated, and most likely, reintegrated into the community.

Isn’t that depressing? The same elements who at a point wrought unimaginable destruction on Nigeria and vowed to disrupt the generally acceptable means of governance to foist a crooked ideology on the people. This is to refresh your memory and give you a clear idea of what just happened.

I’ve tried severally, but I’m yet to find anyone to convince me of what really Boko Haram is fighting for. Boko Haram crept to the consciousness of Nigerians after founder Mohammed Yusuf was murdered in a police cell and the group has gone on to become a monster that breaks down public safety and order in the North-Eastern states.

Through the sustained campaign of violence by Boko Haram in more than a decade, Nigeria has lost more than 30,000 people and over two million people were forced to leave their homes. The picture gets grimmer when the economic cost of Boko Haram terror is put into perspective– money running into several billion if not trillions of naira has been expended to the war.

That is how bad Boko Haram turned on the country and to now see that ‘combatants’ of the sect are being pardoned and reintegrated into the same community they sought to destroy, call to question government resolve to deal with criminals. No excuse can ever be enough to dissuade mounting concerns that come with letting people who took up arms against the country go unpunished, and even worse, be reintegrated into the society.

When criminals begin to realize that there are no consequences for their actions, and particularly, waging a needless war against the country, the looming danger is better not imagined. The ‘we’ll get pardoned’ mentality and tendency to be rehabilitated into the society no matter the extent of crime committed will be a motivation for criminals to surge.

Some people, mostly supporters of the All Progressives Congress-led government, have tried to deflate attention from the wrong impression that the handling of Boko Haram ‘combatants’ has created. Even if those Boko Haram’s combatants’ surrendered as claimed, they should at least serve some form of punishment to deter others from repeating a similar act.

This is not only the right thing to do, it is justice. There are families who lost loved ones to Boko Haram activities and more importantly, our servicemen who died in the quest for restoring peace and order, deserves justice. It is not fair to cut lose those who wittingly or otherwise played a role in their massacre on the mere defense that they surrendered. Why doesn’t armed robber get freed whenever they surrender to the authority?

A terrorist is a terrorist, no matter their excuse, and nothing, not even the borrowed toga of rehabilitation done on them, can wash away their guilt. Of course, we should be looking forward, not backward, but we can’t ignore the ugly sight that people who once bear arms against the country are getting superb treatment and comfortable integration into communities. This will only worsen things and put public safety on the extreme.

And that can be seen from the rejection posed by members of communities, who are not ready to welcome rehabilitated Boko Haram ‘combatants’ into their midst. These are people who have experienced first hand the horror of the murderous sect, and the government should at least, listen to them and address their fears.

The Hydra-headed Monster called Boko Haram have been allowed to fester and grow, they have been treated with kid gloves while combatants have been sacrificed on the FIGHT that dont seem genuine.

This administration was elected on two cardinal points to end insecurity and corruption....
Sadly they have fallen short in all expectation....
the boldness of this sect is increasing and SARZ have refused to CALM DOWN in their inhumane treatment of citizens... Police extortion and harassment is on the increase.

The Government need to do something urgently to stop the incessant senseless killings....
peace

The truth before our very eyes is that

President Mohammed Buhari is rewarding terrorism!!!

Infact, his body language supports terrorism!!!

The Chad president body language is a true demonstration of a president that values human lives and hate terrorism!!!

In summary the Nigerian president, president Mohammed Buhari is a terrorist!!!

To err is human to forgive is divine,
Amnesty to Niger Delta militants brought about the needed peace to the Ijaw people.
Amnesty to Biafra militia after the civil war brought about the needed peace in the south east .
Why should Kanuri people be denied such a peace deal ?. What is good for the goose is also good for the gander, for they all committed the same offence of carrying arms against Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It is sad to see that this govt indirectly want more blood shade and confusion in Nigeria while pretending otherwise.
Re: Boko Haram: Crime Should Be Punished, Not Pampered By Oke Umurhohwo by allthingsgood: 10:37am On Jul 30
Hmmm

I agree on the surface. But u see the thing with asexual guerrilla war, it's that it's never ending. Like people are being forced into going bokoharam every single day, it's an endless cycle. So if fgn is to keep locking all the bh boys in prison we don't even have the space. Not to mention the limited resources to even try these guys in the first place.

It would be easier to just kill bh boys in sambisa, but once they surrender, the govt has a big problem. U cant kill your citizens who surrender during a war. And once u can't kill them, that means I have to try them in court. Then back to the same problem of no space in prison to put them. And that is after wasting years and money for the trial
Re: Boko Haram: Crime Should Be Punished, Not Pampered By Oke Umurhohwo by kingthreat(m): 10:37am On Jul 30
Government should only accept the unconditional surrender of Boko Haram fighters if they are ready to fight for the Nigerian Government. That is how it should be done. They have to make up for the evil they did.

This is not the best time to join the NIGERIA army.

Boko haram is now a political activity and our young men are paying dearly for it.


I will not advice someone I know to join the army now that the fight is not to defense the country but to enrich some sect of greedy politicians.


Our soldier are in prison and Boko haram are being pampers and reintegrating back to the society. What a shame!

Boko Haram are freedom fighters.

They are fighting for Sharia law, same thing the CJN and Yoruba Muslims are calling for.



Islam is the religion of peace and Borno remains the Home of Peace.

Releasing boko haram to the society is simply encouraging terrorism.


If the blood sucking demons are released and repackage as repentant that means every criminal in jail should be on the street by now.

And to make matters worse the insurgency is still on going,lives are still being destroyed,soldiers are still being killed,communities are still being up rooted,IDPs are still in the camps with their numbers swelling every day.
if the insurgency have ended and the terrorists surrendered,this would have some how been considered for debate but nay.
well what people need to know is that the north some how feels they are in competition with the south.as far as they are concerned,Boko haram is their own version of Niger delta militants and as such whatever treatment that was given to the later must be replicated with the former.

It is all part of the fulani domination agenda, the so called repentant bokoharam will form the newly launched nationwide fulani security outfit.
Remember the fulanis have through cattle rearing infiltrate all the nook and cranny of Nigeria, i was surprised when i travel to village to learn that villagers are contributing money to bribe the fulani cattle rearers not to destroy their farmlands.
That was how one lanky cattle rearer used his cattles and block the road and people were even begging him to move his cattle out of the way, this guy cause gridlock for over 30 minutes and even police vehicles were affected and nobody dare challenge him.
It is about time everybody rise up to these challenges, this is a well coordinated plan by the fulanis to subjugate other nigerians.
That was exactly how they take over hausa lands and territory, and now they have their man at the helm of affairs, they want to replicate that all over nigeria.
We need to open our eyes in this country.

Verdict : They are First Class citizens.. When Buhari leaves office all northerners (particularly Fulani) should run back to their states, cos the pampering will end and so many will die. Since Jonathan left office we rarely hear of the Ijaw people and Militants even though their NDDC money is been embezzled, same will happen to these guys rearing cattle with guns.



Together we can make Nigeria better

God bless Nigeria
