GOMBE, Nigeria — Aminu Usman sat facing his interrogators and answered questions thrown at him about his life as a Boko Haram terrorist.

“We were told that we were in the service of God,” said Usman, 35, a laborer and father of five. “That if we die, we would go to paradise.”

Usman explained his journey to militancy not in response to the threat of torture by Nigerian military captors but to sympathetic listeners hoping to change his life for the better.

He is among 95 Boko Haram members trying to repent by surrendering their weapons and participating in a government program to de-radicalize the former fighters and assimilate them into society.

The program is part of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari’s outreach to those who used to belong to the militant group, which has killed more than 20,000 people and displaced more than 2 million others in Nigeria and neighboring Cameroon and Niger.

Usman explained to the rehabilitation officers that Boko Haram forced him to join in 2015 as he was working on his farm in Borno state, the center of Boko Haram activities in northeastern Nigeria.

Boko Haram launched a deadly campaign of bombings, abductions and killings in 2009 to overthrow the government and create an Islamic state in this West African country.

In 2014, the terrorist group claimed responsibility for abducting 276 girls from a school in Chibok, prompting international outrage and a global social media campaign called #BringBackOurGirls. Some of the girls escaped or were later released, but more than 100 are still missing. The group also pledged allegiance to the Islamic State.

Saga continues

Ibrahim said: “From inception, we received 893 out of which 286 graduated and were returned to their respective states and countries for reintegration’’.

He said the personnel in the camp were working diligently with the mandate of OSC in conformity with international best practices.

According to him, the success of the programme will go a long way in restoring peace and security to the North East in particular and the country as a whole.

Ibrahim said the programme was in need of five Hilux vans, additional vocational center, accommodation for camp staff and clients, and prompt release of funds to run the power generator among others.

In his remarks, Alkali said the purpose of his visit was to have an on the spot appreciation of how the programme has been run.

He said NEDC would do everything possible to ensure that the programme succeeded by providing them with facilities needed.

‘`Mr President established this organisation and the NEDC with the mandate to make sure peace came back to the region as it was before in terms of development’’, he said.

He, therefore, urged unrepentant insurgents who were still in the bushes causing mayhem to come and embrace peace and live a normal life.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Alkali also interacted with the repentant insurgents and inspected the camp facilities.

NAN reports that a cross-section of the clients expressed delight in the Federal Government intervention to rehabilitate them even after collateral damages they had caused the country.

 

2017 Again 

After Buhari’s election two years ago on a pledge to eradicate Boko Haram, his military pushed the militants out of their base and forced them on the run. Boko Haram commander Auwal Ismaela, who played a major role in the Chibok abduction, recently surrendered and confessed to several attacks and other useful information about the group.

Even so, Boko Haram has killed 400 people since April, according to a recent Amnesty International report.

Many Nigerians believe most fighters joined under duress. As a result, the government decided to help those who leave the group.

“The federal government has made arrangements for the re-integration of all surrendered insurgents,” said Maj. Gen. Bamidele Shafa, who is coordinating the program at a camp near Gombe.

“This is a clarion call and a corridor of opportunity to remaining insurgents that are still in the bush to heed,” Shafa said.

Surrendered Boko Haram Islamic militants are loaded onto an aircraft by the Nigerian military to be taken to a rehabilitation centre in Gombe where they reportedly are to begin a de-radicalization process, in Maiduguri, Nigeria onJuly 8, 2017. According to the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai about 700 Boko Haram insurgents around the fringes of Sambisa Forest in Borno have surrendered. It is regarded a major development in the war on terror in Nigeria where the Nigerian army has been pushing back militants and fighting to drive them from their strongholds in North East Nigeria.

For Adamu Umaru, 47, who joined two years ago, the rehabilitation program was heaven compared to a Boko Haram location in Jibiya, where more than 2,000 abducted men and women were held hostage.

“We were escaping from the attack on Gwoza” in Borno state, Umaru told officers at the government-run facility. “We took refuge on the hills, but Boko Haram surrounded us and took us to Jibiya. I joined the group while at the camp.”

The officers first grill ex-fighters like Usman to learn vital information about the group’s activities. Then they begin the rehabilitation process, which includes counseling and vocational classes in tailoring, farming, auto repair and other skills. The aim is to allow them to earn enough so they’re not tempted to go back to Boko Haram.

Surrendered Boko Haram Islamic militants receive breakfast before being loaded onto an aircraft by the Nigerian military prior to be taken to a rehabilitation centre in Gombe.

Civil rights activist Tukur Musa Tilde believes the program is a good step toward healing in northeastern Nigeria. “The program will offer them another opportunity to turn a new leaf and contribute to national growth,” Tilde said.

But editorial writers at Punch, a popular local newspaper, recently questioned the rehabilitation program.

“Should terrorists who have shed blood and massacred thousands of people re-enter the society under the guise of de-radicalization?” the Lagos-based newspaper asked. “What of their victims, and the innumerable widows and orphans they have created?”

The rehabilitation efforts are a start, said Sesugh Akume, a spokesman for #BringBackOurGirls. “We fully endorse it,” he said. “Recall that some Boko Haram members were forcefully recruited against their wish.”

After a round of questioning, Usman grabbed a plastic plate and chilled water, then joined other former militants on wooden benches for lunch.

“It is a different experience,” Usman said. “We look forward to becoming better citizens.”
