Photo: Army releases 42 suspected Boko Haram members in Borno

42 suspected members of Boko Haram were today Nov. 6th released to the Borno state government after investigations carried out by the Nigerian army showed they had no ties with the sect.

Presenting the released suspects to the state governor, Kashim Shettima, the  Deputy Director of Army Public Relations of the 7 Division, Col. Sanni Usman said investigations showed the men who were arrested at various times in Maiduguri and other parts in Borno state, had no connection with the sect. He announced a donation of N100,000 each from the Nigerian Army to the released men to help rehabilitate and reintegrate them back into the society.


Receiving the men, the state governor thanked the army for conducting a thorough investigation. He also gave cash gifts to all the released men. 39 of the released suspects were Borno state indigenes while the remaining three were foreigners from Chad, Burkina Faso and Cameroon.

One of the released suspects, a 300 level student of the University of Maiduguri said "I never knew that I could be free again but today marks a new beginning in my life. I will tell my story to my grandchildren."

It is better a guilty man is freed, than an innocent man jailed (or killed).

The useless military with their barbaric acts of torture pushed some innocent north men to join Boko Haram, they have killed hundreds of innocent people and yet they can't crush the real Boko Haram. Sometimes u can't tell who the real Boko Haram is, but one thing I know is God will judge all of them.

Why would anyone visit your site when you clearly have complete disregard for the English language. You start your comment with small letters, your punctuations are wrong, word spacing wrong, even your spelling!
Please go and get a copy of brighter grammar and do yourself some good.

Toronto, did u get ur certificate from 'Toronto'? Because it appears English is a major challenge for u! They are not Boko Haram members, they were suspects arrested, who have been investigated and are now free. #DontGetItTwisted

demmyzone said...

Am sure most ppl here have never been interrogated by police or army before,bcos i know that if police or army wants to get u to confess,u will,BELIEVE ME,though, i also know that torture in the name of investigation is wrong but most times,they are left with no option,we need to start trusting our military even if their release could be part of part of ceasefire/negotiation,i support it,so far if that ll bring an end of these killings.
