The Nigerian Army has handed over 760 Boko Haram suspects arrested by troops to the Borno state Government for rehabilitation and reintegration.
The suspects were apprehended during a crackdown on terrorists in Northeast Nigeria.
A statement by the Army says they were cleared of suspicion after being interrogated by the Joint Intelligence Centre of Operation Lafiya Dole.
The Coordinator of the JIC, Brigadier-General Abdulrahman Kuliya, while handing over the suspects, said the crackdown on Boko Haram terrorists and their operational network has yielded positive results.
He called on all members of the public not to relent in furnishing security agencies with useful information and report any suspicious persons or activities.
The Director of the Borno State Rehabilitation Centre, Ladi Clark, gave the assurance that the required steps would be taken to speed up the rehabilitation and reintegration of the suspects into the society.
