Press Release: ‘Shekau Must Submit to Shariah Judgement, No Amnesty’ – Muslims Against Terror



We have read of an amnesty offer in the news, and we appreciate the  governments appearance of sincerity and compassion, offering amnesty to  our Northern brothers who have been involved in a battle by immoral and  unethical means which only aims to cause havoc and suffering in society.

Verily Abubakar Shekau if he is still alive, must use the same public means to denounce and call off terror. But this is not enough. The foot soldiers who have been hired and recruited to wage this unislamic war  against society, the Ummah and the message of Islam, even if they can be forgiven, Abubakar Shekau must submit himself to Islamic Sharia courts and accept the judgement of the deen for the crimes he has  committed. This is the only acceptable method of repudiation in Islam and if he knows what is right for him, wallahi he will eagerly  accept this choice and submit himself for the judicial process laid down in the Quran.

We implore on the Nigerian government to pursue this course for all  leaders of the movement who have been directly implicated in the  orchestration and promotion of the killing of innocent Muslims,  Christians and others. This is the only fair judgement and it is in the  better interest of peace, truth and justice as preached by our noble  prophet and as is beneficial to society.

In pursuance of this and for a fair trial, Abubakar Shekau and other  clearly convicted leaders of the Boko Haram cult, Ansaru and any other  offshoots or rebrands can be sent to Shariah court in any Muslim Nation  of their choosing where justice will be laid down on them and they will  be obliged to accept this justice of Allah, according to Sharia, and the Nigerian government will not intercede on their behalf.

We implore the government to apply wisdom in compassion. We as  Muslims and the brothers in the group are  obliged by the commands of the Noble Quran to abide by the law of those  in authority, as stated in Quran 4:59.

Yaa ay-yuhal-ladhiyna aamanuu aTiy’Ul-laaha wa aTiy’Ur rasuula wa ulil amri minkum

“Believers! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you…” (Qur’an 4:59)

However those deviants who have done these atrocities and created  crises for the Ummah, and caused mischief on the land and killed many  innocent people, we are commanded by Islam to hunt them, and our  brothers will be torn by such government decision and may fall into  disobeying the law in keeping the command of Islam for justice to those  who destroy the noble deen and “kill all humanity,” by taking innocent  life as Quran describes their actions. For this reason, we strongly  advise Abubakar Shekau and his other generals and Nigerian government to avail them of the rightful Shariah law and justice of Allah(SWT).

Additionally some brothers will suspect that perhaps it is Abubakar  Shekaus friends in the government that are striking this deal for him.  All involved in this harj will burn in the fire.

Renounce violence, get amnesty…FG tells Shekau, others

The Federal Government said yesterday that it is willing to accept  the ceasefire offer of the Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad,  also called as Boko Haram, and grant amnesty to members of the sect if  their leader Sheikh Abubakar Shekau publicly renounces violence.
National Coordinator of the Counterterrorism Centre retired Major  General Sarkin-Yaki Bello disclosed this at an interactive session with  top US military (Capstone course) personnel led by Admiral (rtd) Henry  Chiles at the National Defence College Abuja.
He said government is prepared to accommodate members of the group  in a rehabilitation programme being proposed, but Shekau must come out  through the medium he has been using, Youtube, to renounce violence as a precondition.
