The Nigerian Army says it has “cleared” and released 760 Boko Haram suspects to the Borno State Government for onward rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

The Deputy Director, Army Public Relations, theatre command of Operation Lafiya Dole, Onyema Nwachukwu, said this in a statement on Friday.

Nwachukwu said that the suspects were handed over to the Borno State government at the Bulunkutu state rehabilitation centre, Maiduguri for reintegration into society.

He said they were arrested in the course of the counter-insurgency efforts in the North-East.

“The JIC has cleared 760 suspects. The crackdown on Boko Haram terrorists is yielding positive results, culminating in significant reduction in terrorists’ activities in the North-East,” the statement quoted Abdulrahman Kuliya, JIC coordinator, as saying.
