Violent extremists who are caught and sent to prison in Nigeria should be helped to mend their ways and put on the path towards rehabilitation, according to a senior representative of a justice organization in the country.

Nigeria is continuing to face the challenge posed by Boko Haram terrorists who are regularly committing crimes against civilians in the country.

Some of the terrorists have been arrested by Nigerian security forces after retaking a town in the north-eastern part of the country.

Dr Uju Agomoh is Executive Director, of the NGO, the Prisoners' Rehabilitation and Welfare Action (PRAWA) in Nigeria.

She was speaking to Reem Abaza about the importance of rehabilitation.
