    This is a good news absolutely!“ The operation safe corridor” should not be confined within borno and Gombe alone but should be extended to other states where they also have there hideout. That’s a great performance from the nigeria military. but our military now want to make sure thorough investigation about each repentant boko haram individual has to be carried out to know there real intentions. Before there integration back to the nigerian society,the federal government must make sure these repentant ones should be given full training and enlightenment most likely in the aspect of agriculture. They have to fund that agricultural project and keep a close watch on there progress. This is highly necessary so that they won’t fall back to there formal group and it will also encourage others to lay down there arms and embrace peace.

    Boko Haram is just only small sect of radical terror who have the backing of traitors in the military as well as among the politicians. These betrayers are the one prolonging this war otherwise Boko Haram could have long gone. Take a look at them, simple weapon such as starvation will make them back down. Block their avenue to food and water supply that ends it all. This is a good news from our military men. It really shows that you guys are making great efforts to end this BH rebellion.

    8000? I am lost betwixt happiness and doubts. Is the number real or exaggerated? If this number of terrorist should, of their own accord, surrender, we should hope that the remainder has been greatly weakened. Therefore, any increased activity of Boko Haram in the nearest future would only mean that the military lied to us. I hope they didn’t.
