Soldiers cry out: We arrest Boko Haram, FG releases them, Politicians negotiate - ITREALMS

Some of the soldiers on line of duty have faulted the Federal Government (FG) over the release of over 1,400 alleged repentant Boko Haram terrorists, reports ITREALMS.

They also alleged some top politicians are negotiating the release of these arrested Boko Haram terrorists, noting that they (Boko Haram) would still go back to their group and crime.

According to TheCable, the soldiers who are fiercely fighting insurgency in the North-East, expressed dismay over the rationale behind the increase of the terror group.

They confirmed the release of the suspects to TheCable on Tuesday, lamenting they did not understand why suspected Boko Haram members are being released in large numbers, without trial or proper rehabilitation through a correctional centre.

“A lot of soldiers are not happy about this. We were there at the Maimalari barracks when some of these Boko Haram people were released. “The authorities are releasing them, but Boko Haram are killing soldiers that they capture. This does not make sense to us at all.

“We continue to sweep across the bushes to flush these people out, and then the government will release them. Does that not amount to wasted efforts?”

Another soldier said he believes most of the released suspects find their way back to crime.

“You wonder why Boko Haram members are on the increase? When we arrest them and bring them here, some top people would come and start negotiating their release” he alleged.
