The Nigerian Army on Wednesday released 1,009 ex-Boko Haram terrorists , who had been in military custody at Giwa Barracks in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

According to the Punch, the former terrorists were handed over to the Borno State Government in a secret ceremony that was initially billed to take place at an earlier date but was suspended indefinitely by the military authorities at the wake of the appointment of the new COAS.
