155 ex-terrorists graduate from de-radicalisation programme.

A total of 155 former Boko Haram combatants are now free to rejoin the society after 11 months of de-radicalisation and rehabilitation at a camp in Gombe state.

Repentant Boko Haram Combants

The former insurgents were trained in different vocations in the federal government’s de-radicalisation programme code-named, ‘Operation Safe Corridor’. From tailoring to leather works; barbing to poultry, each now has economic skills for self-reliance.

The long-term success of the program would be assessed by how well the society accepts these repentant Boko Haram members.
