This development caused mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media.


On Friday, 13th of August, 2021 SaharaReporters reported that Senator Ndume representing Borno South Senatorial District has reacted to the report.

According to SaharaReporters, The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, has said he does not agree that the surrendered Boko Haram terrorists should be given blanket amnesty or pampered by the Nigerian Army, adding that the repentant terrorists should not receive a pat on the back.

The Senator also explained that what needs to be done now is to ensure that the seemingly apologetic insurgents are carefully profiled without any rush to have them return to their communities, adding that the army should be more focused on ensuring that the Boko Haram war was brought to an end even faster than it had been projected in various quarters.
