Borno state Senator, Ali Ndume, has crticised the Federal Government’s Operation Safe Corridor meant to rehabilitate Boko Haram terrorists.
Ndume in an interview with Channels Television criticised the bill proposed on the floor of the senate by Senator Ibrahim Gaidam asking for an agency to be created for repentant Boko Haram terrorists.
“I personally disagree with that. The war is not over and some criminals that have been killing people you say that you are doing Operation Safe Corridor for them.
“I am completely against that idea. They know my position on that, you can’t do that.
“It is when you win the war and some people surrender that you think about something like that,” Ndume said.
Condemning the idea further, the Borno state Senator said such a bill only encourages people to join Boko Haram.
“You are just telling people to go and join Boko Haram and then repent and become something (sic) that’s a totally unacceptable idea and a way of solving the problem.”
The Boko Haram bill was sponsored by Senator Ibrahim Gaidam and it is captioned ‘National Agency for the Education, Rehabilitation, De-radicalisation and Integration of repentant insurgents in Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2020 (SB. 340)’.
