Boko Haram Members Agree To Collaborate with FG To End Bloodletting
Their spokesman, Adam Konto, told members of the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North, who visited them at their detention site in Maiduguri on Tuesday that if given a second chance, they would assist government to end the crisis.
Konto introduced himself to the Chairman of the committee, Alhaji Kabir Taminu Turaki, as the amir (commander) of the Bayan quarters.
He said he was speaking on behalf of over 50 detained members of the sect and that they are ready not to pick up arms against the nation again.
Konto said: “We pledge to assist the authorities if given a second chance while admitting to our crimes.
“Most of us were brainwashed and recruited into the sect and given dastardly acts to do without our full understanding of what we were doing.”
Another detainee, who identified himself as Babagana Saje, while also expressing his readiness to denounce the sect, said the police should be praised for keeping them alive.
“The police have been treating us fine. We have been allowed to take our bath and have been well fed,” he added.
Turaki, however, told the detainees that their cases would be looked into, adding that “if you are sincere with this information we have gathered, we will bring you into the proposed amnesty agenda.”
