No fewer than 5,890 terrorists have surrendered to troops in the Northeast following the intensive bombardment of their hideouts.

Acting Director, Defence Media Operations (DMO), Brig-Gen. Ben Onyeuko, who made the disclosure at the bi-weekly briefing on the ongoing operations across theatres, said five hundred and sixty-five of the surrendered Boko Haram terrorists, comprising three Commanders, four Amirs, five Nakibs and others have been handed over to the Borno Government in Maiduguri, for further management after thorough profiling.

According to the Onyeuko, the development followed a sustained onslaught on insurgents waging a blood-letting campaign against the Nigerian State. He sought continuous support by members of the public, in a bid to win the war and, consequently, restore order and peace to troubled areas.

“Suffice to note that, within the last few weeks, more than 5,890 terrorists comprising foot soldiers and their commanders have surrendered with their families to own troops in the North East Zone

On 14 June 2021, own troops repelled terrorists’ attack in Borno State as troops, with the support of the Air Component through air interdiction missions, inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists and their equipment.

No fewer than 48 of the terrorists, 20 arrested including fighters and commanders were neutralized and their logistic base and facilities including 3 gun trucks were destroyed in the process.”Onyeuko said
