Former Boko Haram members and their wives who recently surrendered to troops in Niger Republic have arrived Maiduguri.
Some “repentant” Boko Haram members who surrendered to Nigerien troops, have returned to Maiduguri with their wives and children.
Major General Bamidele Shafa who is the coordinator of the Federal Government Safe Corridor programme, arrived Maiduguri airport in a military aircraft with the repentant terrorists and some soldiers.
Shafa disclosed that the Nigerien government contacted the Niger government after the former Boko Haram members laid down their arms.
“We have just delivered 25 persons, comprising men, women, and children.
“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.
“We are using this opportunity to encourage those that are still in the bush to come out because the president of the Federal Republic has given them an open arm to drop their weapons and embrace peace.”
Receiving the returnees, Borno State’s Commissioner of Women Affairs, Zuwaira Gambo said the former Boko Haram members will be provided with psychosocial support, food, cloth and some form of education and skills acquisition
