- 1,400 repentant Boko Haram suspects were recently released by the military and rehabilitated into society
- The news of their release has caused widespread outrage in the country as the terrorist group continues to wreak havoc in the country
- Apostle Johnson Suleman has condemned the release of the suspects by the military
The general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman has condemned the release of 1,400 Boko Haram suspects by the Nigerian military.
Apostle Suleman said the news will not motivate soldiers at the front-line fighting the terrorist group.
“What will be the motivation for soldiers to risk their lives fighting a sect that will always be later released? This is kindergarten leadership at its peak,” the cleric wrote on Twitter.
Former presidential aide, Pastor Reno Omokri also condemned the release of the suspects.
His words: “When you release 1400 repentant Boko Haram members back to society, without jobs, or business, what do you expect? Yesterday, Boko Haram killed 30 people and stole property in Auno, 15 miles from Maiduguri. How do we know it wasn’t released repentants who perpetrated the attack?”
He went on to say: “I received a call from an orphan whose father was killed fighting Boko Haram and she was crying over General Buhari’s release of 1400 repentant Boko Haram members.”
Many Nigerians have been commenting on the news via social media.
Nekka Smith wrote on Twitter: They are deradicalizing 1400 Boko Haram members. Guess what? They’ll integrate back to society as ‘ Musa, Mai Doya, Shoemakers, Kuli kuli sellers etc. You’ll let them into your homes and they’ll cause mayhem across the country right under your nose.
Frederick Ogugua wrote: After releasing 1400 of Boko Haram terrorists, what about the soldiers killed in the battlefield. This is the level of criminally-minded faggots and the level of incompetence in Nigeria.
Ahmad Adamu Idriss: Yesterday, Nigerians lost friends and family to the Boko Haram attack at Auno. Today, Boko Haram gained 1400 members who were arrested and now released as repentant. In this war, citizens are killed either as civilians or security forces. Nigeria wasn't this bad under Jonathan!
Seun Ayeni: Why hang armed robbers and then free 1400 Boko Haram members because they dey repented. Even after killing so many people. It's not like these guys have ceased fire.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sympathy for Nigerians recently killed by Boko Haram in Borno state.
The president, his delegation and members of the Nigerian community in Ethiopia observed a minute of silence in honour of those who passed away in the attack.
The honour was done to the victims before the commencement of the president's meeting with Nigerians living in Ethiopia.
