Boko Haram Fighters Surrender In Borno
Some Boko Haram fighters renounced membership of the sect on Wednesday in Borno.
According to Daily Post, the fighters gave up their arms and ammunition to security forces stationed in the Gwoza axis.
The commanders and footsoldiers had reportedly escaped from Jaje within the Sambisa Forest.
Operation Hadin Kai troops of 192 Battalion deployed to Gwoza-Limankara road took them into custody.
An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that many terrorists were forcefully conscripted at a young age.
“So far, more than 17,000 members of Boko Haram have surrendered despite ISWAP efforts to stop them,” the source said.
The military expects more submissions before the end of 2021.
