Boko Haram: Ex-insurgents swears oath of allegiance to Nigeria

Repented members of the deadly Boko Haram terrorist group have allegedly completed a de-radicalization, rehabilitation, and reintegration program, denounced their membership of the insurgent group and have finally been received back into the society after swearing an oath of allegiance to the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Obinwannem news understands that the ”ex-insurgents” on Monday, carried out the oath-taking exercise in the Malam Sidi Camp, Kwami Local Government Area of Gombe State, before an 11-man Quasi-Judicial Panel headed by Justice Nehizena Afolabi, of the Federal High Court, Gombe.

In a briefing during the exercise, Maj.-Gen. Bamidele Shafa, the Coordinator, Operation Safe Corridor, claimed that the appearance of the repentant insurgents before the judicial panel was a major requirement before their reintegration into the society.

In his words, “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 offense, they stand to forfeit all privileges that they have acquired today and will be liable for an offense against the State.”

Meanwhile, the Nigerian military had lost countless number of soldiers in attacks carried out by these terrorists in recent times.

One of the terrorist groups also had admitted responsibility for the ambush that claimed the lives of about 50 soldiers near Goneri village in northern Yobe State.
