Ex-Boko Haram fighters Not Being Recruited Into Military – DHQ

The Defence Headquarters has dismissed the alleged recruitment of de-radicalised Boko Haram ex-fighters into the Nigerians military.
The Acting Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu who disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, described the information being peddled on social media as false and misleading, while urging Nigerians to disregard it in its entirety.
Nwachukwu further revealed that the de-radicalization, rehabilitation and reintegration programme is a Federal Government programme conducted under the auspices of Operation Safe Corridor as a non-kinetic operation, adding that the programme has no plans to recruit the ex-fighters into the military.
