The batch consisted of clients from various states in Nigeria, with Borno having the highest number of clients, followed by Adamawa, Yobe, Kano, and other states.
Upon arrival at the DRR camp, the clients were put through comprehensive physical and medical tests by a combined team of medical experts from the DRR camp clinic and Federal Teaching Hospital Gombe.
The medical tests aimed to determine the health status of the clients to provide proper and adequate care during the DRR training cycle.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony, Nnabuihe highlighted that the program’s goal is to de-radicalize, rehabilitate and reintegrate the clients into their respective communities.
He also informed that the clients were trained in skills for self-reliance, which they could use to rebuild their lives after reintegration with their communities.
The graduation of these repentant Boko Haram members marks a significant milestone in the Federal Government’s fight against insurgency in Nigeria.
The program aims to provide a second chance for those who were once involved in terrorist activities to become productive members of society.

In conclusion, the graduation of these 594 repentant Boko Haram members is a step in the right direction for Nigeria’s fight against insurgency.
With the government’s continued commitment to the program, it is expected that more repentant terrorists will be reintegrated into society, thereby reducing the number of active terrorists in the country.
