Senator Ali Ndume kicks against FG programe of rehabilitating ex-Boko Haram fighters

Senator Ali Ndume, the chairman of the Senate Committee on the Army, says he’s against the reintegration of former Boko Haram terrorist into the society saying they will never repent.

Recall that Nigerian Military last week, released 601 repentant Boko Haram terrorists into the community after they completed the Deradicalization, Rehabilitation, and Reintegration program organized by the Operation Safe Corridor of the Military.

Speaking in an interview with BBC Hausa on Wednesday July 29, Ndume who represents Borno South Senatorial District, said;

“This government’s programme is unacceptable to our people. The right thing is to stop it, forthwith. Not that they even apologised to you, they apologized to the government with the thinking that government has failed and that is why they are being pampered,” he said.


They are like Kharajites. Many among those released have since run away. They will never repent.


The government should know what to do about them. But not re-introducing someone to you, who has killed your parent, or your relations.


“If there is sincerity of purpose in this, those in the IDP camps should be trained in various trades and vocation so that they could start life again.”
