BREAKING: Mixed Reactions as Senator Shehu Sani Discloses the work some repentant Boko Haram terrorists are now doing

Sen. Shehu Sani, a former senator from Nigeria, dramatist, and human rights advocate, provoked conversations and responses on social media by revealing the jobs held by a few Boko Haram fighters who have since repented. Senator Sani disclosed that these people are currently employed as plumbers and electricians in a recent tweet.

Nigerians and social media users responded to the post in a variety of ways; some said they would be reluctant to take up free services from former Boko Haram militants. Some also questioned if Senator Sani had ever hired them to do any work at his home.

The revelation about the new occupations of repentant Boko Haram members, as shared by Senator Shehu Sani, prompted discussions on the appropriateness of their integration into society and the public’s willingness to engage with individuals with such backgrounds. The reactions on social media reflect a range of sentiments and concerns about the rehabilitation and reintegration efforts for former members of the terrorist group.
