A Tweeter user with the username @Oma_igala1 has said that one of the reintegrated repented Boko Haram member has killed his father took over his wealth and escaped to an unknown place .
Recall that about 601 memebers of Boko Haram insurgents recently renounced their membership from the terrorists groups and swear oat of allegiance to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and were reintegrated into the Society.
However, Ex-leader of Senate and Chairman Senate Committee on Army, Senator Ali Ndume, also criticized the federal government for granting amnesty to Boko Haram.
Speaking in Hausa with BBC Hausa on a programme, in Kaduna on Wednesday, Ndume who is representing Borno South in the National Assembly, queried government’s rationale for spending the nation’s funds to ‘reform’ the terrorists.
The lawmaker alleged that many of the ‘repentant’ Boko Haram members had since gone back to their former den.
He said: “They are like Kharajites. Many among those released have since run away. They will never repent. The government should know what to do about them, but not re-introducing someone who killed your parent or relations to you.
“Haba, not that he even apologised to the government. His thinking is that the government has failed; hence they are being pampered.”
According to him, the government’s amnesty programme is unacceptable, insisting that the right thing is to stop the banditry.
“If there is sincerity of purpose in this, those in the Internally-Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps should have been trained in various trades, so that they could start life again,” he added.The BBC also featured a widow, who condemned the programme because the terrorists killed her husband.
“This thing is hurting. They killed my husband and son in my presence. I am left suffering with four young orphans. Till death, I will never forget that day.
“Look at the kind of care given to the Boko Haram members. We that have suffered for six years now are not taken care of. Truly, government has not done justice here,” she said. A male victim also told the BBC that Boko Haram killed his relations and chased them out of their home.
“They killed four of my close relations. In what capacity are we going to live with them again? Do we see them as human beings or animals? Or do they want us to meet them and take revenge? There will be a serious problem.”
“Go to Gwoza and Bama; many of the ‘repentant’ terrorists have rejoined the bandits. There is nothing you can do to change a Boko Haram member,” he added.
