Government sets up rehab camp for repentant B’Haram members

Colonel Rabe Abubakar
The Federal Government has established a rehabilitation camp for repentant Boko Haram members who either surrendered or were captured and have shown willingness not to go back to the group.

A statement issued yesterday by the Director Defence Information (DDI) Brig-Gen Rabe Abubakar, said the decision is in line with “Government’s commitment to the war against insurgency in the North East and in furtherance of its efforts to rehabilitate and reintegrate surrendered and repentant Boko Haram terrorist members.”

He said the rehabilitation camp would be established in an exercise known as ‘Operation Safe Corridor’.‬

He explained that this is “geared towards rehabilitating and reintegrating the repentant Boko Haram members back into normal life in the society. The repentant terrorists in the camp would be taken through various vocational training so that they would be useful to themselves and be empowered to contribute meaningfully to the economic growth of their fatherland.‬”

The statement further admonished recalcitrant insurgents “who are still carrying arms against their fellow citizens in our nation to repent today and benefit from numerous opportunities offered by the camp.

“The DHQ wishes to state further that the final onslaught against the remnant group of the terrorists would continue unabated and would not relent until the power of evil forces in the North East is completely neutralised.”

    Which way Nigeria?

    Cameroon: Few months of BH activity; Captured BH member implies death sentence
    Nigeria: Several years of BH activity; Captured BH member implies slap on the wrist and free food plus stipend

    GO ON BUHARI AND COMPENSATE YOUR ARMED POLITICAL HOODLUMS/FOOT-SOLDIERS WHO SLAUGHTERED CLOSE TO ONE THOUSAND INNOCENT NIGERIANS AND DESTROYED PROPERTIES WORTH HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WHEN YOU CLEARLY LOST ELECTION IN 2011 AND ENCOURAGED VIOLENCE BY YOUR UTTERANCES. ONE THING IS CERTAIN, BOTH GOD AND “ALLAH”, WHICHEVER ONE YOU CLAIM TO SERVE, ARE WATCHING AND THEIR PATIENCE MUST NOT BE TAKEN FOR GRANTED!
