Nigerians suspicious over repentant Boko Haram claims
Written by News Room on August 21, 2021
The News of over a Hundred Commanders of Boko Haram, who have surrendered to troops of Operation Hadin Kai of the Nigerian Army, asking Nigerians to forgive them has been generating reactions.
During an interview session with a cross section of Kaduna state residents, they were totally against such move, for them its not fair to all those who are still hurt without some form of punishment.
They further questioned the motive for such a move seeing mostly women and old men coming out with a feeling this might only be a smoke screen for more havoc.
On the other hand, some other feel they deserve forgiveness because their decision to follow suit was not intentional.
For some social commentators, reintegrating repentant terrorist into the society is not proper because jail is where criminals get rehabilitated.
