Another set of terrorists has surrendered to troops as the Nigerian military sustains the heat on Boko Haram.
“Another set of terrorists surrendered to troops at Kawuri yesterday,” sources close to Defence Headquarters (DHQ) Abuja said this evening.
Kawuri is a community in Konduga Local Government Area, where several war-weary terrorists had two days ago surrendered and handed over their weapons to soldiers. Konduga is in Borno State, North-East Nigeria and epicenter of the insurgency with which Africa’s most populous country has grappled since 2009.
Military officials confirmed that those that have surrendered have been taken into custody for necessary security debriefing.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian military has put a lie to claims that a neighbouring country was responsible for the elimination of some terrorists in Nigeria last week.
According to a tweet from the handle of Defence Headquarters, “There was no raid whatsoever by Cameroon or any foreign forces in any part of Nigeria’s territory in pursuit of terrorists as claimed in some reports allegedly quoting Cameroon military authorities.
“All operations ongoing in the environs of Konduga and all associated border locations within the country are completely being undertaken by Nigerian troops.”
