Ogbe said, “We are currently witnessing large scale surrender of large numbers of Boko Haram insurgents, among whom are bomb makers, commanders, arsorrists, rapists, and child snatchers.

“Do we have good reason to cheer and hope for an end to this decade-old insanity? Is “I am sorry” enough to bring relief to Nigerians and the thousands of dead and maimed?” he asked.

The statement noted the massive destruction of property by the insurgents who have rendered many people homeless.
The ACF posed further questions: “What of those victims bombed in the churches, mosques, schools, and markets? What of all the men and women in uniform murdered by them?

“Who can count the thousands of widows and orphans they have created? And what is the difference between them and the Ighoho’s or ESN of Nigeria? None.

“So what do we do with them? Should we just embrace them and trust them wholesale? Are their moves informed by altruistic repentance? We seriously doubt.”

Ogbe, expressed support to similar concerns raised by the Shehu of Borno, the Borno state governor and other concerned Nigerians.
