The military has released 230 persons suspected to have lies with terrorist group, Boko Haram made up of two hundred and nineteen males and eleven females after profiling them.

According to a source within the military, the suspects were cleared after it was established that they were not terrorists but were conscripted against their will.

The source added that the suspects were handed over today to the Borno state government through the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development for reintegration.

Nigerian armed forces have been fighting internal wars against insurgents and terrorists leading to the death of about 40,000 and displacement of more than 2 million citizens since 2009,

Fighting in parts of the North, especially the North-East has reduced drastically as these terrorists have been pushed back from territories they once controlled, but they still carry out occasional attacks, kidnappings, and raids in remote areas.
