Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and other victims of the Boko Haram insurgency in Borno State have kicked against the Federal Government’s extension of amnesty to the insurgents.
This was revealed in a report published recently on the BBC Hausa Service website. The victims of the various terrorist attack by the insurgents lamented that the federal government was taking care of the insurgents at the expense of the internally displaced persons and insisted that they should be prosecuted.
The BBC reported that a widowed mother of four said her husband was killed in her presence by Boko Haram members, some of whom, she said were being taken care of by government.
A few weeks ago, the Federal Government said 603 repentant Boko Haram insurgents, who had completed the de-radicalisation programme would be reintegrated into communities.
