The Federal Government has disclosed plans to rehabilitate insurgents who recently surrendered their arms to the Nigerian troops. Mike Omeri, coordinator of National Information Centre, NIC, Thursday, said the federal government would not prosecute the terrorists.
Omeri said those who surrendered would be taken through the stages of de-radicalization and rehabilitation, while those who refused will surely be dealt with.
“Those terrorist who surrendered their arms and embraced peace will undergo the process of de-radicalization and rehabilitation so that they will be admitted into society, and given the opportunity to also continue contributing their own quota to the development of this country,” he said, warning that those who insist on carrying arms against their fellow citizens, will have themselves to blame.
The NIC boss implored Nigerians to be steadfast in their support to the military, who are working tirelessly to bring an end to terrorism in the country.
