‘Repentant’ Boko Haram Members & Their Wives Arrive Maiduguri In Military Aircraft





Former Boko Haram members and their wives who recently surrendered to troops in Niger Republic have arrived Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

The former terrorists arrived at Maiduguri airport in a military aircraft in the company of soldiers led by Bamidele Shafa, a major general who is the coordinator of the Federal Government Safe Corridor programme.

Mr Shafa said, “We have just delivered 25 persons, comprising men, women, and children,” he said.

He said the ex-Boko Haram members laid down arms and surrendered to the Nigerian government, who contacted the Nigerian government to take them home.

“So we have brought them home safely and handed them to the Borno State government for onward rehabilitation as part of the Operation Safe Corridor de-radicalization programme,” he said.

“We are using this opportunity to encourage those that are still in the bush come out because the president of the Federal Republic has given them an open arm to drop their weapons and embrace peace.”
