Nigerians have vent their views on the response of the Nigerian Army to the alleged release of 1009 Ex-Boko Haram fighters.
The Military on Thursday had denied releasing ex-fighters of the insurgent. It clarified that it released suspects who have been found innocent.
This generated controversial reactions from the general public.
Qudus Abiola Hungbo in reaction to the report, said the military “just confirmed the story in a twisted manner, shame on you people, I am sure they were not arrested on the street neither in their home. They were arrested on a gun battle field. You don’t even pity the innocent children that risk their lives to arrest these guys. You just added 1009 people to the Boko Haram army.”
Richie Kingsley said: “Can you imagine the concocted write up, it was not done in secrecy but with no media coverage, chai dis country Na wa oh.”
Joseph Tope Oyewole said: “You’re known for debunking all news to be fake. If you have been feeding the Public with proceedings, you won’t be stressing debunking news to be fake all the time.
“How do you want people to believe this now? How are we sure the news is actually fake news?”
“That was how you initially denied the Lekki shooting at the #endsars protest and later agreed that the Army were there
Nigerians don’t trust you anymore,” King Drey said.
“Why would a total of 1009 persons who are not implicated in any act of terrorism or insurgency need rehabilitation? Is it because there’s so much money to throw about?” Natty Isala asked.
Abubakar Mohammad Bala said: “Have the Nigerian Army arrest those baggers that spread the news, I believe they are Boko Haram accomplices.”
Bala Isa said: “I don’t know why some Nigerians think and speak with their anus. What people fail to understand is that there are people who are abducted by the Boko Harams either in their villages or along the highway on their way to travel and these people are enlisted and force to join the Boko Haram against their wish, some of these people are not even Muslims, some are not even from Borno State. If those kinds of people are the ones who are being rehabilitated and united back with their families, I think there is nothing bad with this. We should be considerate in our thinking.”
“We are behind you, wish you more courage Nigeria Armed Forces. Victory comes from God alone. No propaganda can deter the Armed Forces from carrying her duties. Progress,” Mukhtar Mamma Angbashim said.
