SUSPECTED-BOKO-HARAM-MEMBERSThe Department of Civil Military Affairs at the Army Headquarters, said on Wednesday that it had captured and de-radicalised over 200 Boko Haram insurgents in Adamawa.
Brig.-Gen. V O Ezugwu, the Commander, 28 Task Force Brigade, Mubi made the disclosure at the opening of a two-day sensitisation programme on de-radicalization held in Mubi, Adamawa.
“This Brigade has rescued and de-radicalised over 200 Boko Haram insurgents from November 2014 to date.
“And the beneficiaries of this programme numbers in terms of thousands”, Ezugwu said.
According to the commander, military operations alone cannot provide a holistic solution to eradicating terrorism and insurgency in the country.
“There is need for a collaborative approach involving political, diplomatic, economic, timely information and other related lines of counter insurgency operation,” Ezugwu said.
He said that the seminar was part of efforts by the Nigerian Army High Command to deepen collaboration with all stakeholders.
In his lecture on relationship between the military and civil populace, Col. Victor Olatunji said that the Nigerian Army was committed to respect for human rights in the discharge of its responsibilities.
Olatunji assured that the Army would not trample on the rights of any Nigerian including captured Boko Haram terrorists.
He advised the participants to offer useful suggestions that would promote good relationship between the military and the civil populace for the benefit of all. (NAN)
