Action Congress of Nigeria National Leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has said his support for amnesty for Boko Haram members is conditional.
According to a statement by Tinubu Media Office, the former governor made the submission during a condolence visit to the Emir of Kano, HRH Alhaji Dr. Ado Bayero and the Governor and People of Kano State over the bomb attacks that have rocked the ancient city of Kano.
He spoke to reporters at the Aminu Kano International Airport in Kano while responding to a question on whether or not the government should grant amnesty to Boko Haram.
The statement said: “Here is Governor Tinubu’s response.”I support the granting of amnesty to the sect but with some conditions which includes justice for those people with blood in their hands because it will go along way in discouraging such dastardly acts in future.
“If you called Boko Haram ghosts, what of their members that were arrested and are in various prisons? These people are human beings and through them, their colleagues can be known and talked to…”
