‘Hungry’ Boko Haram fighters surrender to troops

The Nigerian Army on Wednesday said that five Boko Haram fighters belonging to the Al-Barnawi faction have surrendered to troops of the 3 Battalion following sustained bombardment of the insurgents’ hideout in the Northeast.

Army Operations Media Coordinator, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu in a statement made available to journalists, gave the names of the surrendered insurgents as Ramat Mohammed, Alhaji Brazil, Bukar Gambo, Waziri Bukar and Bashuna Musa.

According to the statement, the suspects were forced out of their hideout by hunger and unending bombardments, which they said left them with no choice than to surrender.

Iliyasu disclosed that troops operating in various theaters have continued to record significant achievements, adding that troops have intensified operations nationwide to deny criminals freedom to operate.
