Outrage as source reveals that the military released 1,009 captured Boko Haram militants to the Borno State Government.
According to a report, the ex Boko Haram were handed over to the Borno State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development.
Some Nigerians have expressed their displeasure on the issue.
Ajiboye Oyedele Joseph said: “Could this be true? So the soldiers watch the Fed. Govt. release those who took the lives of their colleagues, those who rendered their colleagues handicaps, those who give them sleepless nights. Hmmmmmn! It is well.”
Jane-prisca Okey-nduwuaku said: “Buhari is fulfilling all his promises; both pre and post election promises! Amongst a few are ; monkeys and baboons being soaked in blood, making Nigeria ungovernable, sponsoring terrorism secretly and openly….and all what not! That’s what results when mediocrity, nepotism and glaring corruption stifle true democracy! He has succeeded in destroying Nigeria with his cohorts, only posterity will tell!”
Dauda Isa Umar said: “The more you look the less you understand. Now billions of naira would be used for so-called deradicalization of this criminals while patriotic graduates have little or nor capital to start something.”
Dede Thango Dianyi said: “Buhari is the best thing ever to happen to the North, the northerners will forever remain grateful to him. Nigeria as a country belongs to the Northerners until we the southerners get our own country.”
Donald Okoye said: “This is exactly the reason why Unknown gunmen attacked all the facilities in the South East releasing all the prisoners.
“If only we had normal human being as leaders in the East ! Believe me , Fulani caliphate would have fear us .But quite unfortunate we have beggars that people called leaders ??”
Idris Ibrahim said: “They are murderers and what they deserve is to be killed the same way they took innocent lives. I see no reason why they will hand them to the Borno state government instead of the police then to court. As long as the government will keep pampering terrorist then terrorism will never end in Nigeria. ??”
Collins Chukwu said: “What is the difference between the current and former Boko Haram? And when will Nigeria military be separated from the insurgents? From what I’m seeing there’s no seriousness in the fight against insurgents who have been killing the military.”
Iwolode Azeez Adelani said: “This is shocking, shocking in the sense that those called repentant Boko Haram did not surrender on their own but were captured by our gallant soldiers. It is shocking because the repentant Bokoharam did not lead the army to the territory of the unrepentant ones for arrest before granting them amnesty. It is shocking considering the number of people killed and displaced by these callous terrorists. It is shocking because there is no proof that they will not return to their old base soon. Nigeria, my country, is gradually fading away under misrule, I am not happy about it at all!!!”
