It’s time for Boko Haram Sect members to taste the measure of their own medicine as 89 of them were caught in Cameroun and tried by a Camerounian military court over their roles in several attacks in the northern part of the country which borders Nigeria. They were sentenced to death.
In Nigeria where the deadly terrorist started their campaign, only a handful of terrorists have been convicted to prison terms instead of giving them death sentence.
The Federal Government had expended huge ammount of money on rehabilitation on these heinous terrorists to give them rehabilitation rather than convicting them.
Cameroun has been the next target after the deadly terrorist launched evil campaign in Nigeria since 2009.
In January 2015, Abubakar Shekau, leader of the sect, threatened to attack Paul Biya, president of Cameroun, over his country’s role in the regional force set up to fight insurgency. “Oh Paul Biya, if you don’t stop this your evil plot, you will taste what has befallen Nigeria,” Shekau had said in a video.
“If you do not repent, you will see the dire consequences. Your troops cannot do anything to us. I advise you to desist from following your constitution and democracy, which is un-Islamic. The only language of peace is to repent and follow Allah, but if you do not, then we will communicate it to you through the language of violence.”
On his part, Biya vowed to wipe out Boko Haram. About 850 members of the sect are currently in detention over alleged involvement in insurgency in Cameroun. This is the first time that people have been sentenced to death since a new anti-terror law was passed in 2014.
