The Nigerian Army says they will be reintegrating about 603 repentant and rehabilitated Boko Haram terrorists into the society in June as reported by Native Reporters.
It stated that as more fighters surrender, 250 repentant terrorists of which 25 were repatriated to the Niger Republic, have so far been re-integrated under the De-radicalization, Rehabilitation and Reintegration programme of Operation Safe Corridor.
According to John Enenche, Coordinator, Defence Media Operations, Defence Headquarters, who disclosed this on Friday, said that, “72 family members of Boko Haram and ISWAP comprising 33 women and 39 children, were dropped off by the terrorists at the entrance of Ngala town in Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State on 10 May 2020 around 8.30pm, who are all now in the custody of troops for further action.”
Enenche further revealed that eleven ISWAP fighters surrendered to troops of Operation Lafiya Dole in Adamawa State. The repentant insurgents are being profiled for further action. He said there are indications that more terrorists will surrender.
