Army Says Boko Haram Begin Surrender


Abuja – The Defence Headquarters has disclosed that some Boko Haram

terrorists have begun to surrender with their weapons voluntarily

following relentless onslaught by troops.
This is contained in a statement posted on the DHQ website on Sunday.

“Some of them submitted themselves and their weapons to the leadership of

the troops in Konduga during a further campaign at the weekend.

“As the heat on the terrorists continues, five terrorists surrendered on

Saturday (Sept. 20) with all their weapons to troops at Konduga pleading

for mercy.''
According to the statement, other captured terrorists who refused to

surrender have also been giving useful information on the subsequent plans

of the group in an apparent effort to cooperate.
The DHQ recalled that in the last few days there had been several attempts

by desperate terrorists to gain entry into Konduga which were foiled by

the troops.
The terrorists' move, according to the statement, is aimed at recovering

the bodies of their prominent fighters who died in previous encounters in

the area.
The DHQ also said that its troops had recovered more weapons during mop-up

operations while some of their terrorists' vehicles had been destroyed.

The great escape.
