“Over 1000 Boko Haram Fighters Have Surrendered And Most Of Them Are Nigerians” - Sen. Ali Ndume

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Ali Ndume has said that over 1000 Boko Haram fighters have surrendered in Cameroon. Ndume said this after his meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari to newsmen. 

Speaking on the repentant Boko Haram, he said most of them were Nigerians, and the Borno State government is making arrangements about the fighters. Mr. Ndume added by saying that the repentant Boko Haram fighters won't be accepted into society till the proper investigation is carried out on them.

The innocent ones will be set free, but the ones found guilty would be punished according to international laws and due process will be followed.

In his words, he said that due process is to “Take them in, profile them, process them, investigate them, interrogate them, and then those that are innocent should be let go, and those that have blood in their hands, they should be appropriately prosecuted.”
