8000 Boko Haram Members Surrender Voluntarily - Military

Thousands of Boko Haram members have surrendered to security operatives in Nigeria as the military vehemently decimates the group.
 
The President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved a milestone in the current fight against Boko Haram insurgency in the north-eastern part of Nigeria.
 
A recent report published on Premium Times reveals about 8000 Boko Haram members had voluntarily surrendered to its “Operation Safe Corridor” in the North-East as released by the Nigerian army through the Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar.
 
The information was publicised at a lecture organised by the FCT Correspondents’ Chapel of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ).

The lecture with the theme, “Media-Military Relationship in the Fight against Insurgency”, was part of the activities marking the 2016 Press Week of the chapel.

Abubakar said that the surrendered insurgents were in a camp in Gombe waiting to be “deradicalised’’ by the military.
 
The general also disclosed that more than 10,000 Boko Haram captives had been rescued by the military. He said some of them were reunited with their families, while others were taken to Internally Displaced Person’s (IDP) camps.

Abubakar said that Boko Haram had been successfully decimated by the military and government was working hard on the rehabilitation of the victims and reconstruction of the affected areas.

The general also said that the military would soon launch “Operation Safe Corridor” to address the menace of herdsmen across the country. He assured that the military operation would put an end to the wanton killings by the herdsmen.
