A repentant Boko Haram terrorist has reportedly killed his father and made away with cows belonging to the deceased.
Senator Ali Ndume made this known while featuring on Politics Today, a political broadcast aired on Channels Television, Wednesday evening.
Mr Ndume, representing Borno South at the Nigerian Senate, claims come barely a week after the Nigerian Government released over six hundred repentant Boko Haram terrorists.
Before their released, they were said to have undergone deradicalisation programme in Gombe State. But the Borno South lawmaker argues that the government ought to have rehabilitated the victims of the terrorists attacks before working on the attackers.
He said one of those released killed his dad and stole the animals of the deceased who is a pastoralist. He said some the repentant terrorists have gone back to continue their crimes saying they cannot live with infidels.
“Those that have been radicalised and released into the community, there is no monitoring device, and most of them that are back, I can give an example in Damboa,” Ndume said in the broadcast anchored by Seun Okinbaloye.
“One of them only came back to kill his father and take away his cows and ran away with it.
“Some of them that returned to Damboa, after two, three days, they disappeared. I learnt reliably that even in the course of de-radicalisation, they said they are not willing to come to live with the infidels.
“This programme really needs to be looked into immediately. I am gathering information and position of my people and even go legal.
“This is a situation where we still have over one million internally displaced in various camps and host communities and they are still dealing with the trauma of the insurgency and the government is doing this Operation Safe Corridor bringing in those people that tortured, killed and maimed. The memories are still fresh in our mind.
“Almost all the people are against this programme.
“Why don’t you rehabilitate, resettle the people that are dealing with the trauma and give them startup pack to start their lives in any part of the country?
“We have IDPs scattered all over the country. If the government is serious about a programme like this, it should start with the victims first, not the perpetrators,” he advised.
