The Borno Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), on Monday said six Boko Haram insurgents had surrendered to the corps.

The Spokesperson for the command, Mr Bulus James, made the disclosure in a statement in Maiduguri.

James further disclosed that the repented insurgents surrendered to the corps under the Operation Safe Corridor initiated by the Federal Government.

He said that a large number of demoralised insurgents had also indicated their willingness to renounce their crime and join the society.

James reiterated the command’s commitment to support the military to ensure successful implementation of the counter-insurgency campaign.

According to him, the command also conducts sensitisation activities with a view to exposing the personnel to the best practices in peace building and conflict resolution.

“The campaign seeks to promote good understanding with sister security agencies as well as enhance mutual relations with society, “he said.

“On Sept. 9, the command graduated sets of trainees who were exposed to modern security services.

‘’The trainees were drawn from a security client of the University of Maiduguri.

“Private security firms are also encouraged to provide useful information to the military and police to end insurgency and stimulate peace building process.”

James warned that the command would de-list unregistered security firms and those that failed to renew their operational licenses in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Operation Safe Corridor is a critical component of the counter-insurgency operation.

It was designed to encourage Boko Haram insurgents to surrender, facilitate their deradicalisation and rehabilitation for reintegration into the society.

Hundreds of repented Boko Haram insurgents are undergoing three-month deradicalisation process at a military facility in Gombe.

Adamu Garba attacks Hillary Clinton for calling out President Buhari over #Lekkimassacre

Former presidential candidate, Adamu Garba has hit back at Hillary Clinton’s comment on the Lekki shooting

Recall that the former US Secretary of State had asked President Buhari and the Ngerian military to stop killing young Nigerian #EndSARS protesters.

Reacting to this, Adamu alleged that Hillary and others were playing at the entire breakdown of law and order in Nigeria.

He added that the former US Presidential candidate and other left wing actors have a sole agenda of fighting God and nature, turning people into aliens, gays, lesbians.

Adamu also described them as “blood sucking abortionist” who must leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa.

He tweeted;

I told you that we knew the script these guys are playing at: the entire breakdown of law & order in Nigeria Same Hilary spearhead the destruction of Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen and even Egypt at some point wants to import venom in Nigeria Nigerians are wiser, no way for you here

As most traveled & least accomplished Secretary of State of U.S, Hilary’s underwhelming Middle East policy saw the destruction of families, women, children, properties, government & people. This they planned to extend to Nigeria. She is not qualified to tell Nigeria what to do.

Let all these evil left wing actors, whose sole agenda is to fight against God and against nature, whose mission is to turn us into aliens, gays, lesbians, blood sucking abortionist, leave the shores of Nigeria and Africa We say NO to foreign medlars and alien cultures. Thanks.
