Grant amnesty to kidnappers, bandits for peace to reign, CAC president advises Buhari




President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised on the need to consider giving amnesty to kidnappers and bandits terrorising the country in order for peace to reign in the country.

This advice came from the President of Christ Apostolic Church, CAC, Worldwide, Pastor Abraham Akinosun, on Thursday during the pastors’ conference of the church, held at Joseph Ayo Babalola University (JABU), Ikeji, Osun State.

He said carrot and stick approach should be used to arrest the menace.

“It is suggested for consideration that government should use carrot and stick approach to end criminality, banditry, kidnapping and wanton killings in the country.

“There should be an amnesty programme for the criminals turning our nation into a killing field. Extend an open invitation to all gun-wielding criminals to surrender their arms for money to set up legitimate business.

“By so doing, the spate of killings and kidnappings would be drastically reduced,” he said.

The CAC president added that, “the spate of security breaches all over the country has not abated. There is no day we don’t read stories of kidnapping, killing, robbery and other violent crimes. I call on the President to expedite action on the promised community policing in order to keep the country safe as economic development feeds directly on national stability and security,

“The primary duty of government is to secure its citizens. Everything must be done within a reasonable time to keep the people safe,” he stated.
