The Nigerian Army has reacted to the release in Borno State of around 1000 ex-Boko Haram fighters.
The repentant terrorists were released to the Borno State government in a covert ceremony on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, according to the PUNCH newspaper.
The Nigerian Army reacted to the news by claiming that the people who had been released had been coerced into the Boko Haram insurgency. Brigade General Onyema Nwachukwu, the Army’s Director of Media and Publicity, stated this in a statement made on Thursday, July 15th, 2021.
The people who were released, according to the statement, were not ex-terrorists but those who were pushed into the conflict. The people were released as part of the ongoing Counter Terrorism Counter Insurgency Operations (CTCOIN) in the North-East, according to Nwachukwu.
The released people, according to Nwachukwu, were arrested by the military a long time ago and have underwent profiling and rehabilitation. Several investigations indicated that they were not members of the Boko Haram terrorist group, he claimed.
He concluded that it is vital to say explicitly that the turning over of the cleared suspects was not done in secret, since it was seen by UN Humanitarian and government authorities, in accordance with international best practice.
