Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution on Security Challenges in the North, Tanimu Turaki, on Sunday struck out any form of compensation for victims of the Boko Haram violent activities in some parts of the North.
Turaki, who addressed Muslim leaders, who gathered at the National Conference on the Role of Muslim Scholars, organised by the Jama’atul Nasril Islam in Kaduna, said those to be compensated were security operatives, who lost their lives during the incidents.
Turaki said, “Government cannot pay compensation but it will support victims. It will compensate military personnel that were affected by this insurgency. Government will not have the capacity to give compensation because of the number of victims involved in the insurgency incidents.”
