President Jonathan Declared No Amnesty For Boko Haram
President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital,  dashed the hope of those seeking amnesty for the Boko Haram sect, saying that the federal government has no plans to extend such cloak of grace to members of the group that are faceless.

Jonathan stated this at a town-hall meeting during his visit to Damaturu, one of the northern towns facing security challenges arising from the activities of the sect.

He said, “You cannot declare amnesty for ghosts. Boko Haram still operates like ghosts. So, you can’t talk about amnesty for Boko Haram now until you see the people you are discussing with”.

But the president said that he could consider the idea of granting amnesty if members of the group, which has claimed responsibility for the series of killings of persons and bombings of private and public buildings, make themselves available physically for negotiations.
