About one thousand and nine former Boko Haram Terrorists have been released back into the society by the Nigerian Army, a source confirmed.
According to the source who pleaded anonymity, the Terrorists were handed over to the Borno State Government in a secret ceremony.
He noted that they were tasked with keeping the handover ceremony from the prying eyes of the press.
The officer said, “The army handed 1,009 Boko Haram insurgents to the state government today (Wednesday). It was done in secret. We were warned not to allow journalists to the venue.”
It can be recalled that the Federal Government has been rehabilitating the members of the Islamic terror Group under the guise that they have repented.
