Fani-Kayode Attacks Nigerian Army For Begging Boko Haram, ISWAP For Reconciliation
Femi Fani-Kayode took to social media to express his dissatisfaction over the shocking act by the army.
Femi Fani-Kayode has expressed anger after Nigerian Army begged Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists for peace and reconciliation.
Recall that the Nigerian army had called on the terrorists to put down their weapons and embrace peace, saying an end to the war was in sight.
The call for reconciliation was made by the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Brigadier General Abdulwahad Eyitayo at a party organised for journalists by the Army in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital on Sunday.
Eyitayo said that no one, including the military, was happy with the bloodshed, calling on the remnants of the terrorist organisation to take advantage of the amnesty and repent without further delay.
Eyitayo said, “We are not here for bloodletting, no one is happy that people are dying. Some of them (the insurgents) listen to the media, so it is good for us to appeal to them through the media to avoid violence, come forward to ask for forgiveness and reconciliation,” he said.
And reacting, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain wonders when the army began begging terrorists for reconciliation.
“Nigerian Army BEGS Boko Haram, ISWAP terrorists for reconciliation.
“Since when has the Nigerian Army resorted to begging murderers, killers and terrorists? How are the mighty fallen!” he tweeted.
