"Repentant Boko Haram Terrorists Should Be Treated As Newly Found Brothers" - Islamic Group says.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) while warning against discriminating the 'repentant' terrorists, urged Borno State residents to treat the 'repentant' Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters like newly found brothers because what they need is the country's understanding, cooperation and kindness. And that they should be resettled and subjected to skillful training to enable them cater for themselves and their families. "Quick and meaningful resettlement will encourage the remaining insurgents and fighters to embrace peace," said the Islamic group.

They made this statement on Thursday, 19th August, 2021, after the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, appealed to the Nigerian Government and Nigerian Army to assist the state government in resettling and reintegrating the 'repentant' insurgents into the society. According to the group, making peace is cheaper than fighting wars. They added that meaningful development and growth can only occur in a peaceful environment. The Federal Government should therefore ensure that its deracalising process is accompanied by economic resettlement.

MURIC while emphasising on how important it is to win the war against insurgence than to win the battle, stated that battles are won in trenches, but the war can only be won in the minds of men.

The group further disclosed that, real war can only be won, when a quick, effective and meaningful resettlement of the repented Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters is done.
