Don’t give in to Boko Haram demand –CAN tells FG

From PAUL ORUDE, Bauchi

Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has opposed the conditions given by the Boko Haram sect for ceasefire, particularly the one that seeks dialogue with the Federal Government in Saudi Arabia. Speaking with Sunday Sun in Bauchi, CAN’s Financial Secretary in the 19 northern states, Reverend Joshua Maina, said:

“Boko Haram should not be so dreaded to the extent of giving in to their demands. President Goodluck Jonathan has actually been frightened by Boko Haram. Whether we like it or not, he has to face the reality. Saudi Arabia gives them cover as to who will be the figure for the dialogue. “I don’t want to believe the same man who spoke on phone to media men yesterday would be the one to speak for Boko Haram. It is more or less going to be a meeting, what do we table to the Federal Government as or own demand? The same credible people who are going to speak for the Federal Government will be the same people speaking for Boko Haram.

Who created Boko Haram? Accepted it was Mohammed Yusuf, but who sent Jerry Gana to bail Mohammed Yusuf? Is it not respectable Nigerians that have left this country? It is going to be like a form in Saudi Arabia on how to approach Jonathan with Boko Haram issue, what should be our demands for the North. So, I want to believe it is still the North and South affair and not Boko Haram, and unfortunately, the Church in the North suffer because they are like traitors to the northerners. Let the dialogue be within Nigeria, if the Boko Haram is not willing to dialogue in Nigeria, why should we go to Saudi Arabia? Why not Israel?

Rome? USA is there, England is there; let them choose the whole of International Court of Justice? It is not safe for the Federal Government to give in to this demand,” he said. Maina, a two-time governorship candidate and current CAN scribe in Bauchi, said further: “It is rather unfortunate that we have a country like Nigeria where you have crime and you look the other way. We have been insisting that Boko Haram is a formation of northern clique.

Senators, governors in Borno are sponsors. We must accept the reality that Boko Haram is a creation and a sponsored organisation by the northern clique. Sometimes the security people back and give them cover.” According to the CAN leader, Boko Haram is not in a position to demand the arrest of Ali Modu Sherif. “If anybody has anything against him, that person should forward it to the police. If investigation shows that he has a hand in the operations of Boko Haram, on that basis, he will be arrested and prosecuted, but not because Boko Haram demands his arrest.”

On the call for compensation, Maina said: “They killed so many people, why haven’t they demanded for the compensation of the families of those they killed? Their leaders were killed because they were killing innocent people. How can we end up compensating criminals? Boko Haram is a lawless organisation. We all know this.

Why must we compensate families of people, who under the law, are considered lawless people? If we go by that, then tomorrow others will form their gangs and begin to kill people. So, the Federal Government has to be very careful because we lost many precious people. But whether Boko Haram is ready for ceasefire or not, one thing I know is that their days are numbered.

If Osama Bin Laden is no longer here, if Hitler is no longer here, Idi Amin is no longer in Uganda, if these people are no longer here, I don’t want to believe Boko Haram should be dreaded as to give in to their demands.”

    why must Nigerian government compensate killers and there families who are considered lawless people?, we all know that Boko Haram is a lawless organization coming out to kill innocent Christians, If the government mistakenly does that then tomorrow others will form their gangs and begin to kill people believing they will also be compensated, Boko Haram is created by the Senators and governors in Borno and other northern fanatics, who were not happy that the president is a christian.

      if coment like yours are not moderated, i wonder what is the need for moderators. we muslims do not and can not attack the prophets even if pushed, but since i know you are not a prophet and neither is your father, then all i would say is you are not well brought up and you have not trained yourself,
      you still think (that’s if you do) like an animal
      now let see if this will be moderated

        I much as i support any sort of dialogue with any aggrieved party as a civilized way of expressing grievences and reconcilliation, i vehemently reject the venue of Saudi Arabia. When did a weak and defenceless country like Saudi Arabia who 100% depends on USA to protect itself from smaller countries in the region became a father over Nigeria, the giant of Africa? If the terrorist are ready to lay down their arms and seek for peace, then let them hold a dialogue in nigeria as the Niger Delta militants did during Yar adua’s regime. periodzes

  4. Izubiafra November 4, 2012 at 3:48 am

    Understood the President is under pressure, he must show leadership by not conceding to this request of the bloody Boko Haram group. Why must the talk be held outside Nigeria, and at whose cost? If the Kenya Defence Force can annihilate the Al-Shabaab in Somali, why can’t the Nigeria Army who formed the hub of ECOMOG not be able to flush out Boko Haram? President Jonathan is afterall the C-in-Chief. Wake up.

  5. Tony November 4, 2012 at 4:14 am

    Boko haram every where you go in the northern states killing innocent people, Christains should not give up but one day! Judgment will come to them.

      @mberede, you understandably speak Chinua Achebe’s mind. You blame Awolowo for your failed, ill-thought-out secession bid. Did Awolowo promise an alliance? Truth is every decision deserves nurturing and reappraisal where necessary. Awolowo simply had a reappraisal of a Yoruba secessionist bid. Imberede, you might as well dub Ojukwu a coward for fleeing the war with his tails between his thighs leaving his commanders to carry the can and his people to starve! Be more constructive and decent in criticism.

    Why ceasefire when we Christians believe your days are numbered? Reverend Joshua Maine must know these guys boko haram are street boys without education which we truely know can not understand English. They choose Saudi were Hausa language will be use. I am advising our president Jonathan Goodluck and faithful Christians to be prayerful because GOD is ready to repeat what he did to Egyptians many years ago in the northern part of Nigeria soon.

    @mbrede, why did you abuse Yoruba as coward and foolish?, You must be the biggest fool from a useless family background.
    Those who have commented on this issue have done so with common senses but you son of a bitch had guts to call the whole Yoruba, fools and saboteurs.
    The Bauchi CAN Chairman has said it all and i think the President should follow his pieces of advice by not succumbing to blackmail from faceless Boko Haram whose activities are supported by the Northern Clique who can not get to seat of federal power since Obasanjo tenure till now.
    The best action Mr President should take urgently as C-in-C of Nigerian Armed Forces is to declare emergency rule in Bornu, Bauchi, Taraba, Yobe, Adamawa, Plateau and Kaduna by doing so the Armed Forces would apply full force to deal ruthlessly with the Boko haram elements and their sponsors who happen to be some of the Politicians in power in those States now.
    Engaging boko haram in any form of dialogue could lead to civil wars from other regions of the country and that will ultimately lead to final collapse of Nigeria.

    • ode November 4, 2012 at 12:56 pm

  19. Chuks November 4, 2012 at 8:58 am

    This bh killers have taken so much life and so much disstablize most of the northern states,in as much as a christain I want peace to rain in nigeria but I must ask at which cost? This people have taken so much innocent lifes that our government must make them pay one way or the other, don,t get me wrong I want peace but we must not be strong armed in taking any deal given to us by bh, I am not suprised by bh calls for ceasefire, infact, I expected it, u see, our security forces believe it or not are finally getting it right in so many aspects that is partly what brought about this their so called ceasefire if they apply more pressure bh will soon b a thing of the past with this said I do not think nigeria should accept or allowed to b strong armed to any foolish deals from bh we should be detenting the pace to them not the other way round

  20. James Angulu November 4, 2012 at 9:12 am

    Well done CAN, infact you have given a very meaningful advice but the question I will ask now is are you sure Goodluck is ready to you? How many of this advice has he received from well meaning nigerians? Even the few true muslems from the north? Let Goodluck follow them to Ka’aba not only in saudi. How can a rat follow the cat for ceasefire talk in the leopard’s cafe? Goodluck should be let to know how much the northern muslems love him. Don’t you see how Goodluck has refused to recognize that christains are being killed everyday in the north becouse they are those who voted him in the last election? Have you forgotten what Goodluck said when he was asked if there is religious crisis in nigeria and he said there was nothing like religious in nigeria but there was only ethnic crisis and indigenship/settlership crisis?
    Goodluck said this during a religious crisis in jos when he was the acting president. One shining example is what is happening to christains in Bauchi where you(CAN) are speaking from they are being killed, harrased, marginalized, arrested and detained without cause and judgement because they voted Goodluck and because of their faith.Let him continue to feel that his people in Bayelsa and himself are in safe heaven.

  22. Wunuji November 4, 2012 at 9:25 am

    @dele odugbemi, Mberede is right, all yorubas are cowards. How could you mention Taraba among boko haram states? What did you say about Kaduna, Kano Kogi & Plateau states? If somebody criticise your tribe, face him don’t divert. COWARD!!!

  23. DonStan November 4, 2012 at 10:05 am

    If Goodluck wants to dialoque with Boko Haram, let him not send people, rather, let him go to Saudi Arabia himself and he will find out that what happend to DAME PATIENCE IS A SMALL STORY TO WHAT MAY BEFALL HIM. I believe that he does not have good advisers on how best to tackle the problem. Pls. Advisers, tell him to listern to the still voice of C.A N.

  31. moses November 4, 2012 at 10:34 am

    Muslims in the north are not happy with christians making progress in the country leading to the creation of evil group to fight this progress but the lord Jesus is so mighty that all you planned against us shall never bring us down united we stand, Plateau state,Adamawa state,Taraba state,Benue states, all are dominant christians and we all conquer, and for our brothers in remaining nothern states the lord is our strengh we will carry the gospel foreva nd ever.

Is a PDP issue and it will keep having new faces till Jona confirms he is not looking at 2015 or Nigerians should take up their destiny in there hands and stand out for a total change of the system which will sure become war because, what the SE SS SW North wants is totally different from one another.

  38. wazobia November 4, 2012 at 11:45 am

    Mike and co they say silence is the best answer to a fool. However, Islam both scientifically and spiritually is the true religion and Prophet Mohammad may peace and blessing of God be upon him is the greatest human being ever created (ask your sponsors they know better) and thank God the whole world today are gradually understanding the truth. If you are in doubt ask the Americans.

  39. Perfection November 4, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Boko Haram is a national issue that should not be discussed with sentiment. The Reverend has made a good revelation that many people are hiding. Muhammed Yusuf was the founder of boko haram though long gone but had a special relationship with Prof. Jerry Gana.
    Jerry Gana as the respected reverend revealed also bail Muhammed Yusuf whenevet he is arrested by government.
    The big question one will ask here is that; what is the relationship between Jerry Gana a respected member of CAN and Muhammed Yusuf a founder of islamist group? one will deduce here that CAN is the ember of boko haram and it is the agenda of illuminaty society.
    To all right thinking christians and muslims, we should say no to this evil agenda. As muslims are dying, christians are also dying. Any step that will bring lasting solution to this menace is welcome. GEJ. Dont listen to this illuminaty group afterall you have earmarked N88b for repentant militant in 2013 budget 10x more than basic education

  42. muhammad Eisah November 4, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Let me start with the name of the most gracious and the most merciful that Allah. What is happening in this country it is something which is obviously observable and can be judged accordingly. christians and muslims are all part of the on going killings by the called BH members, think wisely my christian bro/sist, if a christian can be caught several times trying or succeeding in bombing a church and vice-versa, we both should think well about this on going thing. As for Mr. Mike who proudly insulted islaam and our beloved prophet Muhammad(saw) i dont blame you actually, i blame some of our muslims brothers who you are relating with, i will advise you to know about islaam not the muslims, for the insult, the owner of you and me created jesus and muhammad, if i can be watching a film of Harold and kumar chrismas 3D and jesus was insulted in that film and my christian fellows laughing at the film and me sadly of the film because jesus was insulted then you should in no way insult a religion which was not brought by you nor any one from your family. Respect your religion and people follow you respect that, respect yourself and as well people will respect you. I pray all the people who are behind this will soon go down completely even if my parents are part of it. GOD Bless nigeria

  46. Oduma Nkwuda November 4, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    Look, we are not helping matters’ what we suppossed to have done as christains is to remain calm as we were and keep to our faith; Bible said that revenge is the lord. Or if i should ask, since this sect started carring out their verious operations killing our church members, our pastors and distroyed our properties; did we retaliate? So, let us allow the Govt of our uncle Dr jonathan to make her decission and should be becareful on how they resolve matters concerning security of life and properties of our church members in the north and Nigeria at large.

  47. macdon November 4, 2012 at 1:56 pm

  48. Ken November 4, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    i have said it many times and i will continue saying it that the only thing that will bring peace and stop the killing in Nigeria is only when the Easterners and the Southerners start killing the northerners in their areas, city and states…… then Federal Government and the Northerners and the sponsors of the Boko Haram will know that everyone in Nigeria can do more worst then they’re doing in North

  49. Emmanuel November 4, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    If it is in igbo land that they are doing all this i think by now they would have declear war in there land,nonsence thing,i think is beter we split this nation than to remian one,because even the yoruba dont even beleav in this one nigerian as they cliam to beleav,so the early is beter let us all go to our separate ways

  52. Paul November 4, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    I think its high time GEJ resigned honorably. He is not the kind of leader a country like Nigeria needs at this point in time. if you ask me, I will say he is better as a follower than a leader. He lacks the charisma, courage,practical experience and the know-how to rule Nigeria. The country needs a president who has his own mind and makes critical decision when duty calls, not a tom boy put in power by some idiots and dances to their satanic music always.
    For boko haram, you can only kill so much (christians,igbos,innocent Nigerians) I believe a time will come when the pain you cause will become unacceptable for the people hence it will be a tit for tat. And for you to think Nigeria can be turned into an islamic nation, smiles. is the most unrealistic fantasy of you and your sponsors. “People call you a bastard and when asked, you said you dont know who your father is” isn’t there an iota of truth in what people say? You have always shown as your brothers all over the world have. that Islam is a religion of violence,hostility and, heartlessness.
    I say to you, watch your back, always do cos these mess cant go on for so long.

  53. Abdu November 4, 2012 at 2:39 pm

    Pls,let Government ask Jerry Gana his relationship with Mohamed Yusuf, B4 we can know the way forward for dialogue,I believe strongly this will help government to get to the root of BH and their sponsors. Pls let Government try and stop this killing. May Allah us Ameen.

    Boko Haram is only buying time; they want to regroup & continue their terrorism. Again serving senators & ex-governors have been exposed as sponsors; this is the reason for their U-turn. JTF should continue to POUND Boko Haram hideout. The FG should pretend by playing along, but use JTF to finish the killers left. Boko Haram has suffered heavy losses, this is not the time to relax. Nigerians have nothing to loose as the lawless group has not stopped bombing and killing.

  57. Ngozi November 4, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    BH, your days are numbered. We Christians do not to and can never fight for our God. The Bible said that the gates of hell shall never prevail against Christianity. The walls of Jericho fell down when the children of God were praising God. If BH is not from God it must surely fall. The meeting or whatever should not be held in Saudi Arabia but in St Peter’s Basilica,Rome. Saudi Arabia gbakwa oku! Ndi ara! Tufiakwa !

    Joshua Maina, God bless you. You will live long. Boko Haram is a Northern Clique, we all knows it, Buhari, IBB, all of them, are the operators of Boko Haram, Atiku, is a sponsor of Boko Haram. That foolish sokoto caliphate, is a Boko Haram, we all knows it. But one thing, the south should bear in mind is that, Power cannot go back to the North until 30 years, otherwise, the country will split.
    God punish the Northern sponsors of boko Haram.

  63. Tsohodut November 4, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Mr Maina, u attributed the boko haram untoward to north/south affair, are u not from the north? Were u in any meeting of that kind and tell me who are those respectable nigerians that asked prof. Jerry Gana to bail Muhammad Yusif while on custody? Finally, Govt hv the best security men for advise on the boko haram demards so save ur input.

    • John November 4, 2012 at 6:12 pm

      You are one of the sponsors. By there comments we shall know them

  64. Ibrahim Akintunde November 4, 2012 at 4:35 pm

    It is unethical to honour the invitation of capital criminals called Bokko Harram.They are simply rebels and useless people.Our security agencies should put more tactics into operation to eliminate these rascals.Any discussion at all MUST be here and not Saudi Arabia.Buhari is a suspect in the operation of these rouges

    Mr President the boko haram leaders are in PDP with you.Take the bull by the horn.Kill all the prominent northern leaders involved in this non sense,the people are behind you,,else you better resign for minded man to take over.

  67. Chibuike November 4, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    Aga you are so stupid by making that comment to mike.Don’t worry, one day, you will be a victim then you will know how painful it is to fall into the hands of heartless,merciless people.

  68. the truth November 4, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    @A.G,what type of prophet is your mohammed? a prophet from GOD or Demon? a prophet that is teaching his fellowers that killing an unbeliever is an automatic ticket to paradise with 7 virgins to compliment it. A prophet that his fellowers has made the world unpleasant to live in?. All over the world your religion is a nightmare to any country you find them. A relgion that preaches peace but does the opposite?. A religion that doesnt value human life? A religion that its worshipers are sufferers of dieseses similar to the plague of the egyptians? A.G, repent before its too late.

  69. John November 4, 2012 at 6:02 pm

    What are we talking about?.The governor of borno state and the senator whom boko haram kingpin was found in his house were responsible and sponsors of this group. If not why is it the arrest of modi sherrif condition for dialogue whom he consider his arch-enemy. This was done in order to rope him forever. We have to be wise. To buy bomb is it kobo. Where do they get money.?

  70. basubayani November 4, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Muhammad Eisah i like d way u talk though,but d fact remains dat islam is d foundatn 2 Nigeria’s present conditn..while Qur’an advices islam 2 kill,D Holy Bible 4bids us christian 4rm killin.dats just y we re foldin our arms.GOD ll surely get us out of d hands of dis ANTI CHRIST called BH..

    • Nababa November 4, 2012 at 9:55 pm

      Where exactly in the Qur’an that says muslims should kill? I hope you are not reading out of context.

  72. Uche November 4, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    The North know very well that the days of Boko Harram is near,they want to use this opporturnity to stop it before the government will catch all their financers and the whole world will know them.

    The whole people metioned by boko harram as respectable elders are their members.

    so nobody will listen to them mostly now that we are on top of it.The sentors involve in this matter are the main reason why they are demanding for ceasefire before govt will fish out the rest.

    God will surely punish them for even demanding for compensation,when the people that lost their belove ones will go and sleep for nothing.

    Just wait soon nigeria will divide and your sponsors will be your meat

  73. Harrison November 4, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    The truth is that the real sponsor of this evil Boko Haram is Ali Modu Sherif. The so call Islamic group just demanded his arrest to remove all suspicions.

  74. Collins November 4, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Mohammed also proposed hatred to b meted to d Jews and christains.pls moslem u pipple shud drop dis pretend and double standard called islam.boko haram will fail amen.

  75. Barr williams November 4, 2012 at 7:06 pm

    Our govt lacks d political will n courage 2 frontally confront dis boko H menance afterall they hv clasified n reliable info abt dia operatn n sponsors why cant der act anyway dont forget 2015 ambitn

  76. Emma November 4, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    God 4give them,4 they know not wat they are doin.

  77. Emma November 4, 2012 at 7:17 pm

    Pls,may i ask a question,wh o is 2come? Is it mohammed or jesus christ?

  78. donik November 4, 2012 at 7:39 pm

    That is why it is necessary to put boko haram suspects on trial and sentence those found guilty. If the arrested criminals are kept untried and unsentenced, their members will demand their release as bargaining chip for peace. If the government succumbs to such senseless demand, what happens to thousands of people they have sent on early grave. I hope the president is not afraid and being intimidated by boko haram supporters in his government..

  79. izu November 4, 2012 at 7:41 pm

    BH members,supports & sympathers are idiots & cowards.compensatn for killing.FG mst b carefl wit their trick.they encourage laziness & killing if agree

  84. udy November 4, 2012 at 9:27 pm

    BH calling for cease fire now tactically, could mean we , BH is loosing our ground, so FG can you give us small chance to regroup to continue the war. FG be wise!

  86. Nababa November 4, 2012 at 9:38 pm

    Who are these Boko Haram?. To me , they are bunch of cowards and if not,why can’t they come out and show themselves. God will never forgive anybody who knows these people but refuse to expose them. How can FG dialogue with faceless organization?

  87. humphrey November 4, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    CAN must put it straight to the Fed. Govt. that boko haram sect must be “deleted” from Nigeria and nothing more (nobody should talk of ceasefire or conditions). It is not a religious group or political association, but a terrorist setup. All northern leaders of thought who are behind this evil must not be exposed publicly, and punished appropriatly. QED.

    My brothers and sisters, the issue of killing especially suicide bombing is not only Boko Haram, St Rita Catholic Church Malali Kaduna was attack by suicide bomber a member worship there and knows the four corner of the church kill 8 and injures more than hundred,with christian cross on his neck, identify by his brother immediately within the this amoung the three classes of BH?

  91. M.E November 5, 2012 at 2:18 am

    God bless u brother,u av spoken well.

  92. Eze udo November 5, 2012 at 4:13 am

    God bless me,we have long hear that isilam is a true religoun God bless also the founder who married a lady that age him all in name of money,while can’t his fellowers do same,did you hear prophet muhamed peac bee unto him preach to gate convert?,a man of God peaple to fight and call it holy war.what the boko haram is doing in the north,all the muslem faithfull a cross the world are in sorport of it,it’s rather unfortunet that thet still force to whatsoever they are doing,please who is now the boko haram it have called himself name as a brave man of the north muhamed buhari has being by them apointed , please mr president (okadigbo) was kill in the north, you will also loss your life if you go to saudi arebia and sambo will take over and boko haram will stop, you think is with you is not with you therefore be wise it’s a well planned deal so don’t set on a table with one pretend to be boko haram agent because north don’t any christians

  93. Ibn Ibrahim November 5, 2012 at 5:23 am

    U xtains jubilate @ d killing of innocent muslem in d north,yet u condemned d killing of innocent xtains in d north.u oppose dialogue in saudi & prefer usa where church of satan exist,isreal,rome & international court which is d hqts of cultism in d world.d statement is self-contradictry.saudi is selected b/c they will not betray them.

  94. paretto November 5, 2012 at 6:59 am

    Well, my take on this issue is that Nigerian political leaders are hypocritical as they know d brains behind BH but they are not will to take drastic action so as to cover their evil tracks.In addition if you x-ray d platform (Islam)on which dis BH operate from u’ll agree with me dat sumtin is fundamentally wrong wit it as evrywhere u hav Islam its always by conquest (bloodshed).Just read thru history.

    I wonder why a Nigerian should be talking about amnesty with a faceless man or body.Who is Boko Haram and who nominated Buhari to stand oh their behal.Aresst Buhari to tell us who has been on the phone with the negotiators.

  100. Lasun November 5, 2012 at 8:40 pm

  101. Ephraim B. November 6, 2012 at 12:32 am

    na waooo! Nigerians, when are we going to learn, let us keep religion out of this. If we are true with our religions we will not be abusing & critisicing each other this way, Abah! We should be making logical & constuctive comments & not showing our stupidity on a social platform as this, it is shameful & callous. If u re a true christian or muslim you won’t make ill comments against your neighbour, isn’t that what Jesus Christ said ” love your neighbour as your self” even Jesus Christ was presecuted & he still said “Father forgive them” i still believe religion should be the preacher of peace, love, tolerance, faith & joy etc. BH are not religious people, they are rebels just like in other countries where you hear of violence & crime even in saudi arabia, america, europe, africa & so on. I know it is not easy to govern a nation as vast as Nigeria of more than 500 languages, it is like the story of Babel in the bible, they couldn’t glue together. GEJ follow your heart & pray to God for wisdom & understanding.

  102. Funmi Aiyeola November 6, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    CAN talks rubbish, anything for peace, I will agree to Saudi Arabia if its the only way forward.

  103. Sani Aliyu November 15, 2012 at 6:17 am

    It is unfortunate that the sun news paper choose not to publish my comments. All I said is you should stop publishing comments that are irresponsible and are likely to
    Course national disharmony otherwise you are being treasonable .
