OPERATION SAFE CORRIDOR DENIES INTEGRATING REPENTANT FORMER BOKO HARAM FIGHTERS

Army-Troops

The Defence Headquarters has clarified that “Operation Safe Corridor, OPSC does not integrate repentant former Boko Haram fighters into the military.

OPSC Coordinator, Major General BM Shafa disclosed this in a tweet on the Government of Nigeria official handle.

Major General Shafa said Operation Safe Corridor only prepares them for reintegration and hand them over to their State Governments.“  

According to the coordinator, Operation Safe Corridor, the impression out there that they are integrated into the Nigerian Military is a blatant falsehood.

He said there are set rules for recruitment into the Armed Forces of Nigeria and one of the rules is that the applicant must not be a convict.
