Nuhu Ribadu - Grant Boko Haram Amnesty or risk another civil war -


A former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has warned that the refusal of President Goodluck Jonathan to grant amnesty to terror group, Boko Haram, can plunge the country into another civil war.

Ribadu, who was the presidential candidate for the Action Congress of Nigeria in the 2011 presidential election, spoke on Liberty FM in Kaduna on Saturday.

He urged the President to grant amnesty to the violent Islamist sect for peace to return to the country, saying he (Jonathan) should not claim that the sect members were ghosts.

He argued that with the way things were happening in the country, if nothing was done, “Nigerians will lose Nigeria to a civil war.”

Advising Nigerians against voting for a leader they can not trust, he told Jonathan to “hearken to the voice of the people.”

Ribadu said, “Jonathan was wrong to have said he will not grant amnesty to Boko Haram; he should not fail to protect the people and when people call saying we are tired, we are down; even if it means to dialogue and have an solution to the whole process, he should opt for such.

“You cannot say they are faceless because faceless people do not do things like this. Faceless people cannot be responsible and daily you see them on Facebook. Faceless people cannot be in your custody; ghosts cannot be people that are in the community, people who at a point wanted to dialogue.”

The former EFCC chairman added that a war could be averted “if we come together forgetting about sentiments, about differences and working towards unity and saving the resources of this country because it is only through that that we will be able to achieve peace.”Punch

if and when people commit crimes like that carried out by members of the radical Islamic group (Boko Haram) they are granted amnesty, then the president and country at large would simply encourage other radical groups to commit crimes at will and force the country to grant them amnesty or risk further attacks (i.e civil war as suggested by mallam nuhu ribadu). Crimes like suicide bombings and mass killings cannot be written off without due punishment / justice. Nuhu Ribadu is simply igniting a fire that would ultimately engulf Nigeria. Without rules and laws, we would be nothing but SAVAGES.

I agree with u

Nuhu Ribadu , let me tell you nobody is afraid of civil war , if it is the refusal of
granting amnesty to boko haram that will erupt another civil war so be it . Boko haram deseverd
punishment for killing innocent people indiscriminately , and then the false entity called Nigeria
would be desolved
