PHOTOS: 52 Boko Haram terrorists undergoing rehabilitation after surrender



About 52 Boko Haram terrorists who laid down their arms in Gombe State are now undergoing de-radicalisation and rehabilitation in the state.

The exercise, under the Operation Safe Corridor (OPSC) is put in place by the federal government in order to restore peace to the North East.

The Coordinator, Major-General Bamidele Shafa, commended them for choosing to lay down arms.

He urged them to take advantage of the window of opportunity provided at the camp to become better citizens, while also advising them to be disciplined and conduct themselves according to the rules and regulations of the camp.


The insurgents earlier landed at the international wing of the Gombe airport, conveyed in a Nigerian Air Force (NAF) C-130 jet marked NAF913 before being conveyed to the rehabilitation camp in four buses belonging to the Gombe State transport company under tight security.
