Metro Nigeria: Over 800 Repentant Boko Haram Undergoing Vocational Training - NEMA



Over 800 repentant members of the Boko Haram are currently undergoing vocational skills training under the supervision of the office of the Chief of Defence Staff, Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Alhaji Sani Sidi has said.

Speaking during the Public Hearing of a bill on the establishment of North East Development Commission (NEDC), Sidi said the repentant Boko Haram insurgents have been registered in a programme tagged, "Safe Corridor initiative".

He said the programme was conceived to provide a leeway for repentant members of the sect to turn a new leaf.

"It is not correct that the Federal government does not have a plan for repentant sect members. The Federal government has set up the safe corridor programme. I do know that over 800 sect members have been registered in it", he said.
