Major General Bamidele Shafa who is the coordinator of the Federal Government Safe Corridor programme, arrived Maiduguri airport in a military aircraft with the ‘repentant’ terrorists and some soldiers.

He said;

“We have just delivered 25 persons, comprising men, women, and children.

“So we have brought them home safely and handed them to the Borno State government for onward rehabilitation as part of the Operation Safe Corridor de-radicalization programme.

“We are using this opportunity to encourage those that are still in the bush to come out because the president of the Federal Republic has given them an open arm to drop their weapons and embrace peace

Receiving the returnees, Borno State’s Commissioner of Women Affairs, Zuwaira Gambo said the former Boko Haram members will be provided with psychosocial support, food, cloth and some form of education and skills acquisition.
