76 Hungry Boko Haram Members ‘Surrender’ To Army

Seventy-six Boko Haram members, including women and children, surrendered to the military in Gwoza, Borno state, according to AP.

The paper quoted a senior military officer and a member of the Civilian JTF as confirming the report, saying all of them are being detained at military headquarters in Maiduguri, capital of the state.

According to AP, the detainees claimed many more fighters were willing to surrender. In September, the army announced that 335 insurgents surrendered in Banki and Biu, towns in Borno.

Sani Usman, army spokesman, said those who refused to give up were killed.

The military has succeeded in driving insurgents from the towns and villages where they operated in the past, even though the issue of suicide bombing remains a challenge.
