Don't equate Boko Haram with N-Delta militancy – Amnesty office

ABUJA – The Amnesty Office in the Presidency has dismissed attempts to compare the grievance of members of the Boko Haram sect with that of ex-militants in the Niger Delta.

This position came against the backdrop of call for amnesty for members of the Islamic sect.

A  director in Amnesty Office, Dr. Ferdinand Ikwang, who spoke as 50 ex-Niger Delta militants departed the country for training in Sri Lanka, said every zone of the country should be dealt with on its merit.

Ikwang said no other geo-political zones of the country should use the South-South as a reference to get something for themselves from government.
