Christian Youths Oppose Amnesty For Boko Haram

The youth wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has rejected the proposed amnesty for members of the Islamic sect, Boko Haram, describing the offer as potentially dangerous to Nigeria and Nigerians as it is a clarion call to more terrorism in the country.

Addressing a news conference in Abuja, President of the association, Simon Dolly said amnesty for members of Boko Haram amounts to pampering the same people who have terrorised the nation and calling the bluff of those who are victims of the sect members.

He alleged that Christian youths in the north have been marginalised by the advocates of amnesty to the terrorists.

The association has now demanded an unconditional return of all missionary schools to their rightful owners in addition to building Christian vocational centres in the 36 states of the federation.
