    i dont think amnesty wil work but the bible made me to understand that wit God all things are possible. However our govt should be clear that boko haram is not influence by any other reason rather than religion. The bible says the kingdom of God suffer violence and violence taketh it by force. This people are only fightin cos å christian is leading this country. I bet u , replace jonathan wit buhari and tomorrow this battle wil totally stop. U dont need any joint task force or police to stop them, u can all see bombings in barracks and all the police stations , shine ùr eyes then u wil know that the evil ones are every where. It is only the grace of God that is keepin nigeria. Jesus is stil watchin and å day wil come when the prince of the air and his kingdom wil be thrown to hell. Long live my country , long live nigeria.

    @justin, you have said it all. Is only the will God that will be done in this country. Am just wondering why the hatred is this much, their not just fighting bcos the president is a Christian their fighting him bcos his not mallam. God is watching. Wht God will use to expose them will be a very minor thing. Through this amnesty if at all it will work there will be confusion among their sponsors.
