The Islamic organisation made the appeal in a statement sent to DAILY POST on Thursday by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola.
The group stated in the statement that creating peace is less expensive than fighting wars, and that significant development and growth can only occur in a peaceful atmosphere.
“Nigeria’s North-East conflict zone has seen a dramatic shift, with thousands of Boko Haram terrorists and ISWAP fighters laying down their arms. As a result, the zone has seen an exceptionally large influx of ex-insurgents and former ISWAP fighters.
“The state government now bears a humanitarian obligation as a result of this. As a result, the state governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, appealed yesterday to both the Federal Government and the Nigerian Army to aid the state in relocating the surrendering fighters.
“MURIC joins the hardworking Governor Zulum in urging the Federal Government and the Nigerian Army to do everything possible to assist the state government in resettling and reintegrating refugees. A governor who spends the majority of the day with troops on the front lines and the majority of the night traveling around the city, visiting hospitals, and teaching in classrooms to guarantee that all sectors are operational must be supported.
We emphasize that creating peace is less expensive than fighting wars, and that significant development and growth can occur only in a peaceful atmosphere. As a result, FG should go to great lengths to ensure that its deradicalization process is followed with stomach infrastructural and economic resettlement.”
MURIC urged Borno’s civilians to show a spirit of accommodation and integration of’remorseful’ rebels and fighters.
“Surrendering Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters should be resettled and trained in occupations that will enable them to support themselves and their families in the future. The remaining insurgents will be encouraged if the resettlement process is expedited and meaningful.
Peace must be accepted by insurgents and fighters.
“MURIC also calls on the civilian community of Borno to show a spirit of accommodation and assimilation of regretful insurgents and warriors. We strongly oppose any form of stigmatization. Returning fighters should be handled as if they were newly discovered brothers. What they require is our patience, collaboration, and kindness.
“As we conclude, we remind both the Federal Government and the Nigerian Army that winning the war is more vital than winning the fight. Battles are won in trenches, but the war is won in men’s thoughts. Only a rapid, effective, and genuine resettlement of regretful Boko Haram insurgents and ISWAP fighters will allow the actual battle to be won, according to the group.
