Nigerian army releases 983 suspects cleared off links to Boko Haram

983 suspects who were arrested over an alleged link to Boko Haram are said to have been released by the Nigerian army after months of investigation.

The detainees were reportedly handed over to Borno State Governor Babagana Zulum on Wednesday November 27, by the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole Major General Olusegun Adeniyi, after they were found to be innocent.

While speaking at the hand-over ceremony in Maiduguri, Governor Zulum said the former detainees will be rehabilitated before being reunited with their families.

This is coming after the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) shared a report of over 22,000 persons disappearing from the crisis that ravaged north-east region since 2009.
