Army taken up for releasing over 300 terrorists suspects

The Nigerian army has been criticized for releasing more than 300 Boko Haram suspects.


Nnamdi Kanu’s Special Counsel, Barrister Aloy Ejimakor, who reacted via X on Friday, said it was ironic for the security agencies to detain a person demanding a sovereign state, and free terrorists.

Recall that on Tuesday, the Defence Headquarters said it released 313 Boko Haram suspects to the Borno State government on the orders of the Federal High Court.

Reacting to the development, Ejimakor wrote, “It’s an oxymoron for the Army to declare someone wanted for seeking a separate State and turn around to free hundreds of terrorists, all in the same week.

“It’s another stark evidence of the horrendous injustice that is responsible for the continued detention of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.”
