Nigerian FG Grants Amnesty To 800 Former Boko Haram Terrorists, Skill Acquisition Training Ongoing In Maiduguri Borno State
NEMA (National Emergency Management Agency) DG, Alhaji Mohammed Sani Sidi, today said that over 800 repentant Boko Haram terrorists have been granted amnesty by the Federal Government of Nigeria and they are undergoing skill acquisition training in Maiduguri Borno State.
Sani Sidi said the repentant terrorists are being monitored by the Office of the Chief of Defence Staff.
Boko Haram Amnesty Program is a poverty alleviation program aimed at empowering repentant insurgents who joined the dreaded sect because of poverty and unemployment.
Hope the Federal Government can do more to help other unemployed youths in the country.
