Burkina: A converted terrorist calls on his ex-companions to lay down their arms


Ouagadougou: A former terrorist, Kadourou Boly known as Abdoul-Kalki (16 years old) calls on his ex-companions to lay down their arms so that Burkina Faso can find peace.

‘I am speaking to the terrorists, lay down your weapons. Let’s not destroy our country. I beg you, lay down your arms so that together we can cultivate peace,’ said young Kadourou Boly, known as Abdoul-Kalki.

Mr. Boly, a repentant terrorist, spoke to his former comrades in the 1 p.m. television news this Thursday on Radio Télédiffusion du Burkina (RTB).

Aged 16, the former informant and fighters of the so-called Support Group for Islam and Muslims (GSIM), Kadourou Boly, indicated that the future does not lie in terrorism.

For this, he invited those who are still in the ranks of this group and many others to renounce it.

Because, he argued, terrorism constitutes hell for those who venture into it, despite your money or your weapons.

The convert called on the terrorists to become aware of the manipulation of which they are victims.

For
him, those who give them orders are safe and push them to die for ulterior causes.

‘Those who send you do not die in your place, your fate is hell. So, we must stop the barbarity and let’s build our country together,’ he suggested.

Kadourou Boly, known as Abdoul-Kalki, was captured by fighting forces since May 1 in the Center-East region as part of the fight against terrorism.

The arrest of this native of Kompienga followed exchanges of fire on the same day with FDS and VDP from Dialgaye in Kourittenga.
