Nnamdi Kanu hits Army for begging Boko Haram to surrender
The Nigerian Army’s call on remnants of Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists to surrender has angered the Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.
Recall that the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen. A.A. Eyitayo, made the call at a feast organised for journalists by the army on Sunday in Maiduguri.
He noted that nobody including the military was happy over the bloodshed, hence, the need for the remnants of the insurgents to leverage on the amnesty and repent their nefarious ways.
This, he said, would avail them (insurgents) the opportunity to enjoy rehabilitation and acquire skills to enable them to live a useful live in society.
Reacting, Kanu decried the offering of amnesty to known killers, saying that the insurgents would be rehabilitated, recruited into the Army and posted to the South where they can wreak havoc.
“Nigerian Army BEGS Boko Haram, ISWAP terrorists for reconciliation.
“And after reconciliation, they will be rehabilitated, recruited into the Army & sent to the South to ‘shoot to kill’. Now you see why I keep calling it a TERRORIST army,” Kanu wrote.
