Nigerian Army has released 182 Boko Haram suspects from Maimalari Barracks in Maiduguri, Borno state.


Army Spokesman, Colonel SK Usman, revealed that the “joint intelligence community investigated and authorized” the release of these prisoners. He added that the release was part of Nigeria’s National Army Day, which was held on July 6th to commemorate the first shots of Nigeria’s Civil War at Garaken, Cross Rivers State.

The prisoners were reportedly released to the
governor of Borno state, Kashim Shettima.
According to Sahara reporters, 40 boys, 24
women, 100 adult men and 18 children were
among those released today
.
In addition to the prisoner release, Colonel
Usman said that the Army was celebrating the
opening of a new military center, providing two
days of free medical treatment for Borno State
residents, and awarding Purple Heart and
Operation Zaman Lafiya medals to soldiers
fighting Boko Haram. All these events were tied
to Nigeria’s National Army Day.

Meanwhile, the military had confirmed that
more people detained for alleged links with the
Boko Haram sect will be released after being
cleared by its joint intelligence cell.

Sometimes last month, the Nigerian army
handed over four foreigners and 124
Nigerians detained in connection with the Boko
Haram terrorist group to Kashim Shettima, the
governor of Borno state.
