The Arewa Youth Consultative Discussion board, AYCF, has warned that Boko Haram insurgents could replicate what Talibans did in Afghanistan right here in Nigeria.

AYCF Nationwide President, Yerima Shettima stated Boko Haram insurgents could take over the Nigerian authorities just like the Taliban did in Afghanistan.

Talking with Newsmen, Shettima faulted the choice of the Federal Authorities to rehabilitate repentant Boko Haram members.

He warned that reintegrating them into the society might be harmful as a result of they might regroup and assault once more.

In line with Shettima: “Issues like this ought to be an expertise we should always work on forward of time to avert, and that’s the reason I defer from this ideology of granting amnesty to individuals who dedicated a lot harm to Nigeria.

“Within the case of the Taliban in Afghanistan, you will notice that it’s the identical factor that replicated itself that we in Nigeria are nearly bumping into now.

“Do not forget that it was the concept of Obama to grant some Taliban leaders amnesty; ultimately, they gathered momentum and immediately ousted a official authorities as a result of they see themselves as the federal government already.

“This similar expertise we’re prone to have, however God forbid, we are going to resist such in Nigeria. Why ought to any individual who dedicated the crime of killing folks, chasing folks out of their houses to IDP camps, killing them nonetheless be reintegrated into the society?

“As a substitute of attempting to rehabilitate victims again to their houses, the federal government is celebrating the identical man who artificially created the difficulty for them that they’re exhausted. They might in all probability regroup and assault once more; we are actually busy granting them amnesty; I actually don’t perceive what Nigerians suppose at occasions.

“Should you grant them amnesty, do you suppose the society will permit them to take a seat round? It’s unimaginable. Authorities ought to be all out to combat them as soon as and for all, prosecute them and make them face the legislation as a result of that may function a deterrent to those that felt cheated could be completely satisfied, and the society would additionally know that you may’t do issues wrongly and get away with it. This may even function a deterrent to these considering of committing such crimes.

“At present, now we have an issue of terrorism with bandits; in the event you suppose you’ll be able to’t prosecute them however grant them amnesty, then there is no such thing as a must maintain folks in jail; permit everyone to come back again dwelling, give amnesty to everyone lets know we’re in a society the place crime turn into the order of the day. Mechanically we’re within the Banana Republic, the place there is no such thing as a legislation and order, a spot the place folks can do issues and get away, so we are able to fall right into a state of anarchy the place everyone would defend themselves. We are able to’t suppose that means, and that’s the place I defer from those that consider amnesty is the precise factor.

“We’re confronted with the problem of Boko Haram as a result of we are able to’t wipe them out, and if one other power joins them, there are prospects of the identical taking place.

“In the meantime, a few of us discover it troublesome to agree that the Nigerian authorities has been overwhelmed, I commend the Nigerian Armed Forces, in latest occasions, their sample has modified and they’re making some efforts, however we anticipate extra from them. No organisation or particular person ought to be seen to be extra highly effective than the federal government.”
