Samson Ayokunle, the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has stated that the rehabilitation and de-radicalization of former Boko Haram members is troubling.
This was disclosed during the second anniversary of the abduction of Leah Sharibu by Boko Haram terrorists.
“The setting free of so-called ex-Boko Haram terrorists under de-radicalisation, rehabilitation, empowerment of the arrested terrorists by the federal government is rather troubling and suspicious,” he said.
“What is the guarantee that the freed ex-terrorists would not return to Sambisa forest and pick up their arms against innocent Nigerians?”
Represented by his vice, Caleb Ahima, Ayokunle added that the Buhari administration is still experiencing bloodshed.
“The development is a shame and there is a cloud of confusion that hangs over the nation and the people that are governing this nation are not doing the right thing,” he said.
“We are sure of one thing. We cannot doubt that the government knows what is happening. Looking at the fact that we are a nation, we have the air force, the navy, we have the soldiers, we have the weapons, but what is happening in this nation?
“We call on the federal government again that we are getting to a point of anarchy.
“We have every reason to be suspicious and to speak passionately to government again that Christians in this nation are Nigerians and must not be killed.
“We want the world to know the evil that is happening in the country under the watch of this government. More blood is being shed. The killing is religious. Boko Haram sect wants to establish an Islamic state. We must stop this killings”.
