The Anglican Primate, Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh has urged the federal government’s committee on dialogue and amnesty for Boko Haram not to accept peace on Boko Haram’s terms as he demanded justice for all the Christians that have been killed in the sect’s insurgency.

Addressing the third session of the eight synod of the Anglican Church in Abuja, Most Reverend Okoh said it’s a pitfall that must be avoided by the committee because it would inadvertently create an Islamic state in the northern part of the country.

Most Reverend Okoh also added that a public discussion should have been held before the amnesty committee was set up.

He urged northern elders and leaders to protect the lives and properties of people of other faiths.
