2 Inaugurating the committee on Monday in Government House Maiduguri, Zulum said the committee would also manage repentant insurgents, particularly how they are to come out of the bush, their rehabilitation and reintegration into the society.
3 Zulum said proper handling of the task assigned the committee which has the State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Umar Kadafur as Chairman, would lead to increased surrender of remnants of the insurgents and bring peace to Borno for the needed development.
6 The governor, however, noted that there was currently a challenge of lack of space to accommodate surrendering insurgents as all the three camps provided for them had been filled to capacity.
7 He said government had discussed with Theatre Commander of Operation Hadin Kai, on the need to have bigger camps.
8 While reiterating the commitment of the state to fund the activities of the committee, Zulum said it should also look for other source of funding from public and private organisations.
11 Shehu said the committee would work in close synergy with its Federal Government counterpart for maximum result.
