Senator for Borno South and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has warned the Federal Government to stop giving amnesty to Boko Haram members.
The senator who spoke during an interview with the BBC Hausa Service on Wednesday alleged that many ex-Boko Haram members deradicalised and reintegrated into society have returned to terrorism.
He cited the example of a repentant insurgent that vanished after robbing and killing his father.
The senator said that the programme codenamed Operation Safe Corridor must immediately be stopped, saying that the people were against it.
“This government’s programme is unacceptable to our people. The right thing is to stop it, forthwith.
“Haba. Not that he even apologised to you, he apologised to the government. His thinking was that government has failed and that is why they are being pampered.
“They are like Kharajites. Many among those released have since run away. They will never repent.
“The government should know what to do about them. But not re-introducing someone to you, who has killed your parent, or your relations.
“If there is sincerity of purpose in this, those in the IDP camps should be trained in various trades and vocation so that they could start life again,” Ndume said.
