The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has threatened to challenge the bill seeking to establish an agency to rehabilitate “repentant Boko Haram Members.
Punch Newspapers has reported that the proposed National Agency for the Education, Rehabilitation, De-radicalisation and Integration of Repentant Insurgents in Nigeria’ will get its funding from the Universal Basic Education Commission and the Tertiary Education Trust Fund.
SERAP, said the bill by @NGRSenate to give “repentant terrorists” foreign education is ill-judged, discriminatory & unconstitutional.
“It offends Nigeria’s international obligations & should be dropped.
“We’ll vigorously challenge this bill in court if it’s ever passed into law,” SERAP said in its Twitter handle.
