The result of the gallant approach of the Nigerian Military towards the activities of Boko Haram members in most states of the northern region has been on the winning side with reports that lots of Boko Haram members have chosen to drop their weapons and surrender to the federal government. Recall that these Boko Haram terrorists have carried out nefarious and heinous attacks in most states of the northeast and northwest region of the country. There were reports that some villages were captured and lots of villagers killed and property destroyed.
However, with the efforts of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration through the acquisition of sophisticated weapons, the gallant Nigerian soldiers have shown resilience which has led to the surrendering of most of the Boko Haram terrorists.

Nonetheless, one contentious point since the report of forgiving and integrating these repentant terrorists by the federal government into the society is if these repentant terrorists would not go back to their old ways. Also, some analysts have doubted the sincerity of these repentant terrorists on the basis that they could become spies for their allies who are still in the forest and are yet to surrender and repent.
That being said, a recent media report has confirmed that the federal government is taking one action to ensure that these repentant Boko Haram terrorists are thoroughly assessed and they do not pose a threat to the society. The action by the federal government will ensure that the activities and location of these repentant Boko Haram terrorists are known at all times.
What is this action the federal government is deploying to ensure that repentant Boko Haram members are thoroughly assessed?
A recent media chat with the Theatre Commander, Operation Hadin Kai, Maj.-Gen. Christopher Musa which was reported by Punch Newspapers has revealed that the federal government, is not leaving any stone unturned in ensuring that repentant Boko Haram terrorists are thoroughly assessed and hence, do not pose a threat to the society. The Commander disclosed that they have invited the National Identity Management Agency who is taking the profiles of all the repentant Boko Haram terrorists. He further revealed that the federal government had instructed that the thumbprints and pictures of the repentant Boko Haram members are also taken so that the activities, location, and movement of the repentant Boko Haram terrorists are known whenever they are forgiven and integrated back to the society.
The above revelation by the Theatre Commander is indeed a piece of goodnews because, with the information and detail of these repentant Boko Haram terrorists, their activities will always be available in case they get involved in any unlawful activity.
