Nigerian Army releases 125 Boko Haram suspects
« on: November 09, 2014, 08:40:12 AM »

Nigerian Army on Saturday released another 125 persons arrested for allegedly having links with the fundamentalist Boko Haram sect.

This development follows an earlier release of 42 persons who were investigated and found to be having no link with the fundamentalist group.

Spokesman of the 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, Col. Sani Usman, while handing over the new set of 125 persons to Gov. Kashim Shettima, informed that 254 persons were intercepted fleeing from the state after attack on Boko Haram strongholds on September 23 in Biu. He added that after proper investigation, the 125 men have been cleared of any involvement in Boko Haram activities.

He, however, disclosed that those who have been investigated and found wanting would be prosecuted in the court of law.

?These cleared suspects being presented to you were, however, cleared by the military after a thorough investigations by the military of any alleged involvement or participation in terrorists activities in the recent attacks and killings experienced in Southern Borno state,? Col. Usman said.

In his response, Gov. Shettima said that the action of the military will build trust between the army and the civil populace.

?It shows that the military are core professionals and know how to go about their duties. This will go a long way in building trust across the local people and the military,? Shettima said.

He lauded the military for taking good care of the freed suspects, saying they look well treated and they do not show any sign of torture.
He advised those released to put behind any feeling of revenge, while calling on them to contribute their quota to nation building especially the return of peace.

?Now that you have been absolved from any terror activity by the military, each and every one of you here in this Government House Hall, to exhibit good behaviour in your respective towns and villages; and should also assist the military by giving useful information on how to end this insurgency that has been with us for over five years.

?Islam does not condone the killings and destruction of people?s property. What is important is that all of you should go home and assist your parents, because most of you are youths that could transform this state into a better place to live in,? Shettima advised.
