Following relentless onslaught by Nigerian troops, many members of the Boko Haram terrorists group are beginning to surrender voluntarily. Some of them submitted themselves and their weapons to the leadership of the troops in Konduga, Borno State, during a further campaign this weekend.
The Defence Headquarters has tweeted that “as the heat on the terrorists continues, five terrorists surrendered on Saturday (September 20, 2014) with all their weapons to troops at Konduga, pleading for mercy.”
Other captured terrorists who refused to surrender have also been giving useful information on the subsequent plans of the group in an apparent offer to cooperate.
In the last few days there have been several attempts by terrorists desperate to gain entry to Konduga which the Nigerian troops have continued to foil.
A report by PRNigeria said that the terrorists’ move was aimed at recovering the bodies of their prominent fighters who had died in the previous encounters in the area.
Meanwhile the Nigerian troops have recovered more weapons during mop-up operations while some of their (terrorists’) vehicles have been destroyed.
