Borno State government on Sunday reintegrated 132 repented members of Book Haram sect into the society.
The state’s Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Zuwaira Gambo, disclosed this while handing over some rehabilitated Boko Haram members to their families in Maiduguri, the state capital.
According to her, the youth were released to their families and local government officials after completing a 12-month skills acquisition and rehabilitation training programme at the Bulumkutu Rehabilitation Transit Centre.
Gambo added that the training was designed to equip the beneficiaries with skills that would enable them to generate income, be self-reliant and add value to the society.
The commissioner said sewing machines, barbing kits, shoemaking kits and money were given to the beneficiaries as resettlement package.
