I doubt Boko Haram’s ceasefire –Oritsejafor

38

…Insists criminal terrorist organisation can’t give fed govt conditions

From ROMANUS UGWU, Abuja

The president of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, has doubted the real identity and sincerity of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram who recently issued a ceasefire offer to the Federal Government, emphasising that there were more questions than answers in the unusual offer.

Reacting officially to the conditions Boko Haram gave for the ceasefire, the flamboyant pastor maintained that he was yet to understand why the sect wanted to drag the Federal Government to far away Saudi Arabia, and why they opted for former military head of State, Gen Mohammadu Buhari in addition to other tough conditions.

Addressing the media ahead of the weeklong ceremony lined up to commemorate his 40 years on the pulpit, Papa Oritsejafor said: “The biggest question that will beg for answer is whether these people giving the conditions are really Boko Haram members.

I have said that I would want to sit down and watch the situation first.” “I want to look at the unfolding events because what we are hearing is even much more interesting than what we are seeing. When I read it, the first question I asked was if they are the real members of Boko Haram or some people else. We must first ascertain their true identity in the next few days.

“The next question was whether they were sincere or just on a blackmail mission? I’m very puzzled how a criminal terrorist organisation will give conditions to a legitimate sitting government of a country those tough conditions like releasing their members from detentions. “The other questions are why Saudi Arabia, why Buhari and the other names mentioned to mediate on the ceasefire.

I want to reserve my comment but those questions should be the teasers and food for thought to think and contemplate. In fact, what we have heard raises more questions than any answer at all. There are much more unanswered questions. The last teaser is that a day or two after giving the Federal Government the ceasefire conditions, they still killed a retired General.

The questions are increasing, so I would reserve my comments.” Speaking further, he said: “I want to watch more events unfold and to understand more before I make my comment, but for those following my comments in the past, I have always believed that I will be vindicated. The thing about truth is that you cannot bury it.

“Jesus is referred to as the truth, but they killed him, buried him, however he rose again on the third day. It means that there is not much you can do against the truth and the bible advised that we would work for the truth and work with the truth. I want to give the report some time before I make my comment,” he noted.

  1. YOU ARE RIGHT MY DEAR. EVEN IF THEY ARE THE REAL BOKO HARAM, IT IS DANGEROUS TO NEGOTIATE WITH TERRORISTS LIKE BOKO HARAM

  2. Mr C.A.N. Clearly you are not security expert. Your often comment on national issues, especialy security matter was abuse of C.A.N office in the manner that reduces the power of the gosple. Terrorism is a global challenges with political and economic dimension but Nigerians are unwise by much ado about been judgemental of goverment motives on areas that required confidentially and maturity. As a religion leader, your Faith in Jehovah should manifest to people not your relied to president Jonathan. The peoples of Noway were not judgemental of their goverment for the brutal mass killing by their christian citizen to show hatred for policy that allowed the increase of muslim population in Noway. Nigerians should wisely allow our messiah president Jonathan to do His WILL the way we allowed late president Umar Musa yar,adua that granted amnesty to Niger-Delta militant.

    • From the way you sounded, you are in support of our brothers, the BH, but you forgot that what the Southern millitants were fighting for was quite different from ours. Which of our lands was polluted? Which of our ecosystems was badly damaged? Excepting for the fact that our greedy and famili-centric politicians in the North dealth with us with reckless abandon, disparaging the work of our founding fathers. Let us face the reality, what of the more than 3,000 christains killed in cold blood, what can you say about the insincerity of our Northern leaders? These set of people increased the wopping numbers of the amajiris. My brother forget about religion and call a spade a spade.

      • I hear you brother Abubakar,so 3000 Christians have been killed. The 3000quoted by the army staff didn’t mean Christians alone. So many Muslims have been killed as well prominent Islamic scholars . The fact that Muslims are not crying foul doesn’t mean the casualties have not been high on their part too. Calling a spade means Oristejafor doesn’t qualify in anyway to talk on security issues given his track of public islamophobic comments.

        • @Bolanle,You should call a spade a spade,How many Mosque was bombed in the North and How many church has you read in the news that was bombed. @abubakar is right,the Niger delta was fighting the OIL Companies in there region for pollution,and they were busy bombing pipelines,kidnapping oil workers,but Boko-haram was busy bombing churches,Schools,and market places,cant you see the different,why cant you call a Spade a Spade

      • @Abubakar, if only we have 10 persons like you from the North,I think they will talk sense into BH to stop the killing of Innocent Nigerians,may Jehovah Grant you more wisdom

    • the noon, or whatever you call yourself, you are still blind, you are not seeing in the day so what will you do at night, the C.A.N. president represents the opinion and interests of all christians in this country and over three quarter of the victims of these terrorist group are christians, and you are blind enough not to realise that the C.A.N. president has the right to speak as the leader of christians in nigeria

  3. Now dat we av a way out,dis enemy of peace pastor is not hapy.pls can u sugest any oda way bcos jtf is not workin dey ar just kilin inocent pple,by d way is buhari not a nigerian or is nigerian embasy not in saudi.

    • Lasun u said C.A.N President is an enemy of peace.wait & see who is d enemy of peace.it is only a fool like u can trus t his enemy

    • lasun, how can you say the CAN president is an enemy of peace, you are the real enemy of peace of this country, why should an appallingly wicked and inhuman group of people destroy lives and property so much as they have done and after that they are asking the government to compensate them for the evil they have done to this country, they are even giving conditions such as releasing their fellow idiots in jail, and you say the CAN president is an enemy of peace to question the demands of these evil people

    • @Lasun, why can’t they hold the peace talk here in Nigeria,if they are for real,When Amnesty was Granted to the Niger Delta Militant,where was the talk Held?

  6. Papa leave them, the masquerade is gradually unmasking himself, we are kinly watching those who are behind the terrors and the so called boko haram because they want to be in power, lets hear their condition in saudi arabia

    • @rev Newman,the reason why the come out for peace,was because the headquarters was discovered in Mali,and they know that very soon ECOMOG solders will be there

  7. The CAN president could be correct,but i would like mr president to still allow the JTF to deal with them until we get the truth.They seem to be getting tired of killing’ useless fools.

  8. Hopenwachinamelu on

    Papa do you say watching? Is there still ELIJAH, ELISHA, NOAH, MOSES, etc of God in our generation? A sect of group that determines in insulting and proofing God to nothing by sendind HIS image and likeless to death untimely are to be rewarded? (Ezekiel 22 vs1-31).Evil has taken over the Earth, truth can’t be said, children of God re not active to defend God’s name. Oh God let thy will be done.

  9. We know where all this is leading to. Buhari is fully a member of Boko Haram. If not why did they choose him to be their spokesperson / negotiator. If somebody is not a member of a group how can such a person take decision on behalf of that group. in 2007 Buhari said Moslems should not vote for non Muslim, in 2011 he said if he did not win this country will be ungovernable. The boko haram a terrorist group now wants him to negotiate for them and no effort at all was made by Buhari to dissociate himself from the Terrorist group . My fellow Nigerian why can we say the truth. Why are we always being hypocritical in everything. GOD HAVE MERCY

  10. Alh. Lasun, there is nothing wrong for papa to talk about security matters, are his members not beiing targeted and killedd? What rubbish are u talking about?

  11. if I say that buhari is their mentor some body will say that I’m indaitting him. as for Saudi Arabia, that is the headquarters of OIC, and boko haram is the Brian child of OIC, a tool for islamisetion of nigeria(violence has always been their resort).

    The evil that men do live while they are living and
    live after them also. All the evil men and women in this country living that have in one way or the other put us in this abject poverty, killing of innocent souls, maltreatment of less privilage Nigerians, denying some section of this country their legitimate right, no good roads in these zones,especially the southeast, no Federal govt presence, yet you say they should not cry, from 1966 to date, TUNDER with hot fire will surely visit their homes one by one. There is no hiding place for the wicked, the truth is coming out gradually and they will all dance the music they drumed soonest.imagine a country some militants used gun and many souls, the Boko haram also, nobody remembered to arrest them,even the President could not, but people that protesting armlessly for their freedom are been arrested by so called brainless policemen and the big fools in the Government kept queite since yesterday and never find necessary to call these sombis police men to
    order, we have a rubber stamp serving President and bastard law makers that knows we have freedom of expression. Thank God they arrested them at this moment the Internation organisations are watching.”He who holds a childs belonging and raise his hand up will surely bring it down when he feels pains” Those of you in this evil class that are still alive, you better repent of your sins against your fellow persons you subjected to nothing no just cause. Yes, there was civil war, and it was regarded as NO VICTOR, NO VANQUISH, THEREFORE ONE NIGERIA,BUT UNFORTUNATELY ONE NIGERIA IS ONLY ON OUR LIPS AND NOT IN HEART.

  13. no amount of grammar or,reconciliation can make up for the huge losses brothers boko haram has caused christian community and some sincere non christians in this country;my single prayer as always been ‘oh dear lord,unto thy hands i commit the souls of the departed-amen’ so, whatever the govt ,U.S terrorist fighters or even individual should or not do,can or not do, i submit myself to the will of God,looking up to him for justice.

  20. Where is the truth and where is the lies.Mr pres said he knows BH are in his govt yet nobody was sacked azazi said security report showed Bh was a creation of PDP yet nobody raised an eyebrow.pls pastor in Jesus name leave buhari alone.

  21. Pls jonathan u are the president.don’t listen to sycophants.do what is right for the country so that u remembered in future.

  22. The highest mistake the federal govt will make is to negotiate with boko haram, this will amount in creating a very big problem instead of solve the existing one because many many more deadly millitant group will still come out and ask for negotiation, infact at a stage it will become normal besiness in nigeria.
