800 repentant Boko Haram members for rehabilitation in Gombe

Brig.-Gen. Bamidele Shaffa, Coordinator of Operation Safe Corridor for Repentant Boko Haram, said on Monday that 800 repentant Boko Haram members would soon arrive Gombe for rehabilitation.

Speaking during an interactive session with newsmen, Shaffa said that all the necessary arrangements had been put in place to commence operation at the rehabilitation camp.

He said the repentant militants would undergo a de-radicalization process in the camp, which would prepare them to go back to their various communities.

Shaffa said that about 14 Federal Government agencies including the security personnel would work in the camp.

He said the former militants would be trained in 12 different trades and vocations.

Shaffa said that the National Directorate of Employment would provide all the facilities for the training.

Malam Sani Sidi, Director General, National Emergency Management Agency, said that the agency would provide food and other items for the trainees.

The items donated by NEMA include bags of rice, vegetable oil, mattresses, among other items.
