More than 8,000 Boko Haram terrorists have surrendered – Army

The Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Abdulwahab Eyitayo, says more than 8,000 Boko Haram terrorists have so far surrendered to the troops of the Nigerian Army.

The GOC, who is also the Commander, Sector 1, Operation Hadin Kai, disclosed this during a visit by the Director, Army Public Relations, Onyema Nwachukwu, and a team of Defence Correspondents from Abuja on Tuesday, in Maiduguri.

He attributed the mass surrender to the overwhelming firepower of the troops.

He said, “One of the reasons they are surrendering in droves is the overwhelming firepower from the troops.

”It is because every man’s endeavour is motivated by his family’s wellbeing; that is why they are coming out with their families. We started seeing the signs from June.

“Our intensified operations had blocked their logistics’ routes and supplies, bombardments all over; that is why they started surrendering and diseases have overpowered many of them.

“It was better because in the end, the troops will clear all of them and their sympathisers combined.”

Eyitayo further warned that a time would come that the window of surrender would no longer be available, as he called on terrorist sympathisers to encourage them to come out.

He added that whoever supported the enemies of the state would also be treated as an enemy by the state forces.
