602 repentant Boko Haram members swear oath of allegiance to FG


Six hundred and two repentant Boko Haram members on Monday swore an oath of allegiance to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The repentant insurgents also denied their membership of the terror group.

The development followed the completion of a de-radicalization, rehabilitation, and reintegration program.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the self confessed former Boko Haram members swore the oath of allegiance at the Mallam Sidi Camp in Kwami Local Government Area of Gombe State.

The event was organised by an 11-man Quasi-Judicial Panel headed by Justice Nehizena Afolabi, of the Federal High Court, Gombe.

Maj.-Gen. Bamidele Shafa, Coordinator, Operation Safe Corridor, in a speech at the event, said the repentant insurgents are to be reintegrated into the society.

“The panel is for the clients to appear before it to confess their pasts and denounce their membership of Boko Haram, Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) as the case may be and swear Oath of Allegiance to be loyal, disciplined and obedient citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and then make a commitment.

“The commitment is that at the end of the program, where they commit any offence, they stand to forfeit all privileges that they have acquired today and will be liable for an offence against the State,” he said.
