President, Northern Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Comrade Isah Abubakar, has kicked against calls on Federal Government’s plan to grant amnesty to members of dreaded Boko Haram insurgents.
Abubakar, who spoke in Kaduna yesterday, said amnesty for members of the insurgent group is unnecessary because it would encourage acts of terrorism and banditry from unscrupulous elements.
He said, the Islamic group, which has been operating in North-east for about six years now, had claimed more lives and destroys property than any other militant group in the world.
“The stand of NYCN as regard to the happening across the country is clear.We condemn in totality the attitude of those calling for amnesty for Boko Haram as we regard them as infidel and evil among people. Boko Haram has slaughtered more than 17,000 persons and they are considered the bloodiest in the history of Mankind.
“We support Mr President’s commitment and Nigeria security agencies. Our candid advice to President Muhammadu Buhari is to treat any group of person(s), of any ethnic nationality, whose activities is contrary to the law of the land as criminal,” Abubakar however noted.
