Boko Haram commanders surrender as Troops round up 700 members
Over 700 members of the Boko Haram terrorists group on Monday surrendered to troops of 26 Task Force Brigade, Nigerian Army, Operation LAFIYA DOLE. This followed intense bombardment of their enclave by the troop in a renewed surveillance and strategic attack to finally blot the remnants of the sects out of the nation’s territory. Some of the members are said to be commanders and other high rankers.
Meanwhile, out of the 700, 70 have come out of hiding and are being profiled. The rest are expected to come out from hiding in the coming days. Preliminary investigation has shown that among them were key commanders and influential members of the terrorists group, one of whom matches suspect number 225 on Boko Haram terrorists most wanted list released by the Nigerian Army.
So far, the surrendered terrorists have been making useful statements and it is expected that many more of them will surrender.
