The Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor, has revealed that a total of 101 combatants comprising members of the Boko Haram and Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) groups have been moved from detention facilities for de-radicalization.
Irabor, who briefed State House correspondents on the outcome of the National Security Council meeting held in Abuja on Friday, stressed that the military would sustain its tempo of fighting oil theft and other criminals in the country.

“Council was also briefed that a total of 101 ex-combatants were taken to Operation Safe Corridor and are currently undergoing the process of de-radicalization at the centre.

“These were people that have been in detention for several years; some of whom had served their jail terms.

“Others were awaiting trial but because of the long time they have been detained and in line with the procedures for handling anyone who have been involved with terrorism, they have to be moved to the centre,” he said.

On the oil theft, the CDS said: “Activities of the Armed Forces and other security agencies within the oil and gas base were also commended but with the directive to sustain the pressure and it is our resolve to deal decisively with those who have been involved in those illegal acts.”
