The Defence Headquarters has established rehabilitation camp in an exercise known as Operation SAFE CORRIDOR. Acting Director Defence Information, Brigadier General Rabe Abubakar, announced this on Tuesday in Abuja. He explained that this was in line with the Federal Government’s commitment to the war against insurgency in the North East and in furtherance of its efforts to rehabilitate and reintegrate surrendered and repentant Boko Haram terrorist members.

“The main focus of Operation SAFE CORRIDOR is geared towards rehabilitating and reintegrating the repentant and the surrendering Boko Haram members back into normal life in the society. The repentant terrorists in the Camp would be taken through various vocational training so that they could be useful to themselves and be empowered to contribute meaningfully to the economic growth of their fatherland,” Brig.-Gen. Abubakar said in a statement.

He said: “The Defence Headquarters therefore wishes to appeal to other recalcitrant terrorist members that are still carrying arms against their fellow citizens in our nation to repent today and benefit from numerous opportunities offered by the Camp. The DHQ wishes to state further that the final onslaught against the remnant group of the terrorists would continue unabated and would not relent until the power of evil forces in the North East is completely neutralised. The reluctant Boko Haram members should therefore see wisdom in surrendering now, thereby saving themselves from imminent calamity that is about to fall on them, in the event of military mop-up if they continue in their unwholesome acts. Furthermore, the DHQ is urging public to be extra vigilant and report any unusual persons, objects and movement to the security agencies.”
