Nigeria’s Federal High Court sitting in Borno, the Borno state capital has ordered the immediate release of at least 313 detained suspected terrorists arrested by the military.

The Director, Defence Media Operations, Maj. Gen. Buba Edward disclosed this during the operational briefing on Thursday in Abuja.

The PUNCH reports that the court ordered their release for lack of evidence to jail the suspects after investigations.

Edward said, “The court ordered the release for want of evidence after the conclusion of investigation and other ancillary matters.

“Accordingly, they would be handed over to the Borno State Government for further action.”

SaharaReporters reported in February that some displaced persons in Borno state had threatened to return to the territory under the control of Boko Haram terrorists.

Like the IDPs, some family members of repentant Boko Haram fighters had issued the same threat, citing hunger and hardship in the IDP camps.

This came as hardship bit hard across the country, sparking nationwide demonstrations by organised labour.

Just like the IDPs, the families of the repentant Boko Haram fighters had accused authorities of neglecting the daily supply of food and other necessities.

To them, life was better under Boko Haram occupation; as such, returning to the jungle was a matter of survival.

According to them, the supply of basic necessities has been cut off and there are no farmlands available to cultivate.

“Some of our colleagues here in Dikwa have decided to return to the bush because life is not any better here in the camp. We’re just suffering here,” a displaced person lamented.

“We took the decision to leave our families behind and relocate to the Boko Haram-controlled area because it is all about dying whether here or there,” another person added.

However, the Borno state governor, Babagana Umara Zulum described the complaints as baseless, saying, “those who want to return to Boko Haram in the bush are free to do so.”
