Senate mulls agency for repentant insurgents

The Senate on Thursday commenced moves to establish an agency for de-radicalisation of repentant Boko Haram insurgents.

The move followed the first reading of a Bill titled: “National Agency for the Education, Rehabilitation, De-radicalization and Integration of repentant insurgents in Nigeria (Est, etc) Bill, 2020” by the Senate.

The Bill was sponsored by former Yobe Governor, Senator Ibrahim Geidam, representing Yobe East Senatorial District.
