Literary Icon, Prof Wole, Soyinka has called on the Federal Government to go back to the very beginning of the Indoctrination of Boko-Haram sect members in schools if they intend to solve the sect’s insurgency.
He made the call while speaking on AJStream, a programme on AIJazeera cable network on Wednesday and monitored in Benin.
Prof. Soyinka said that Boko Haram is a local movement, adding that it is part of an international problem that needs to be checked.
“Boko Haram members claim they are fighting for their religion. We have knowledge and pronouncement of other Muslims that they are not true Muslims. That what they are doing is not approved by any teaching in Islamic religion, “the Nobel Laureate said,
He said a military response is not the only way out but one of the many approaches which are essential to finding a solution to the problem. “If we must solve the problem, we should go back to the basics where the malformation took place.
“Nigeria is in a war situation and every Nigerian citizen should consider this. Boko Haram phenomenon should not be limited to the Northern region alone but something that affect the entire nation. This people have declared categorically that they will not be satisfied until Nigeria and Nigerians are Islamized,” he concluded.
