Prosecute All Surrendered, Arrested Boko Haram Terrorists, Christian Group Charges Govt

The Men’s Missionary Union (MMU) of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC) has charged the Nigerian government to prosecute all Boko Haram terrorists who claim to have surrendered or were captured by the Nigerian troops.

This is contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the 41st Annual Congress of MMU and read by the newly elected President of MMU, Dr Soye Asawo.

The communiqué also backed State Police and called on the National Assembly to amend the constitution to accommodate State Police.

“Congress asks the government to prosecute all those arrested, captured or who surrendered over insurgency, banditry and all forms of criminality.

“Congress supports state police, and ask the National Assembly to quickly amend the constitution in this to give effect to the yearning of the Nigerian people,” the communiqué said.

While urging the government to take the war to kidnappers, MMU also called on the Nigerian government and Kaduna State government to compensate all the families whose children were kidnapped at the Bethel Baptist High School and other kidnap victims.

“Congress note with dismay the state of insecurity nationwide and ask the federal government to deploy more security personnel to fight the war as Nigeria is presently at war against insurgents, Boko Haram, banditry and ISIS so that citizens do not resort to self-help in order to defend themselves.

While commiserating with victims of the Jos killings, MMU urged the government to deploy more security personnel to fight the war.

The communiqué also commended President Muhammadu Buhari for signing the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) into law and charged the government to monitor the implementation of the law to avoid corrupt practices.

In the 2023 election, congress admonished Baptist Men who are above 19 years and do not have voter’s cards to take advantage of the online registration of voters to get registered.
