No Amnesty for Enemies of Life by Chukwuemerie Uduchukwu

Boko Haram members

The main aim of Boko Haram is to shed blood of innocent people in the name of religion.

Life is an irreplaceable gift by God to everyone, irrespective of tribe, race, religion or social status.

It is also a gift that can never be manufactured. It is expected that every human being should respect and preserve this extraordinary gift of nature. However, some group of deadly and wicked people that address themselves as Boko Haram see this special gift as a hindrance to their progress.

Boko Haram sect claim that they are fighting Jihad but their devilish acts have shown that they are simply blood suckers that work tirelessly for the kingdom of darkness. They said they are fighting for the progress of Islam but at the same time, they find it necessary to eliminate the lives of their fellow Muslim brothers and even bomb mosques.

This deadly sect also claims that they are anti-western education but they utilise the products of western education such as IEDs, riffles and all kinds of ammunition.

The truth is that the main aim of this group is to shed the blood of innocent people in the name of religion. Sometime ago, their leader, Abubakar Shekau, stated that for them to stop violence, the president must abandon his religion and accept Islam. This simply shows that they don’t have any knowledge of the religion that they are advocating for. No religion forces anybody to accept it. Also, the creator of life never mandated us to shed blood in order to show our love for him. The fact is that we cannot create life so we don’t have any right or authority to destroy it.

A sane and God fearing person cannot accept to kill his or her fellow human being in the name of religion and it is totally ungodly and immoral to seek for the forgiveness of people that neither value life nor have any atom of repentance in them. It is totally illogical for a government that has the prime function of protecting the lives of her citizens to engage itself in dialogue with blood thirsty animals. No sane individual or life-loving individual or group will advise the government to dialogue or grant pardon to people who kill at will.

The government should selflessly and sincerely use the funds budgeted for security to advance the intelligence of our security agencies. Also, all those arrested should be sincerely prosecuted and their sponsors traced. All the bank accounts found to be aligned to them should be frozen. Our national boundaries should also be well managed, guarded, equipped and monitored in order to avoid the entrance of unwanted individuals into the country. Network service providers should be advised to help the government trace the bases of these criminals through their ICT facilities.

Furthermore, the government should conduct a honest probe in the accounts of the security sector and all those found to have embezzled the funds budgeted for security should be prosecuted.

Boko Haram members are not greater or mightier than over 160million Nigerians. They are enemies of life and should never be pardoned. Life has no duplicate therefore, it must be guarded jealously.

Long live our dear nation, Nigeria.
