​Boko Haram: Group wants de-radicalization programmes ​for schools in northern Nigeria

Boko Haram

The Nigeria Diaspora Security Forum, NDSF, has urged the federal government to embed de-radicalization programmes in ​schools in ​northern Nigeria​ ​as a strategy towards curbing the Boko Haram insurgency.

In a statement, Tuesday, the group said the suggestion was part of a report it compiled following a closed door meeting with Matthew Barzun, the US Ambassador to the UK, in London.

“In the meeting, the US Embassy official reiterated that the United States Government condemns the senseless killing and loss of lives caused by Boko Haram and other enemies of the Nigerian people,” said the statement signed by Godwin Forson, the group’s Publicity Director.

“The United States of America will continue to render all necessary assistances required by the Nigerian Government and Nigerian Security establishment, within the well established international legal framework.”

Other highlights of the report include a request for more collaboration with the Nigerian security experts in the diaspora to address the insurgency; that the federal government should work with the US government to develop a credible, civil military task force focused on conflict resolution and prevention; and the establishment of a tension monitoring system and first responder teams in terrorism hotspot areas.

The report also urged the government to establish a task force with the sole aim of investigating and tackling all forms of terrorism, as well as support and fund community based organizations to develop and implement the de-radicalization programmes in northern schools.

“Nigeria Diaspora Security Forum felt there was need for Nigeria Diaspora Community to intervene in the security concerns on matters of insurgency and the forthcoming 2015 election issues,” the statement added.

    I believe that de-radicalization must begin with the following
    Repeal of the Sharia penal code
    Disbandment of the Islamic thought Police
    Assure all that while they can continue to be relegious, all must obey he law
    Once these have been accomplished, you can then begin to put money into other programmes of de-radicalization. Otherwise you will be pouring money into a bottomless pit.
