Some members of terrorist sect, Boko Haram have surrendered to Nigerian troops on operation in the North-East, the military has said.

This was disclosed by Director of Defence information, Brigadier Rabe Abubakar to PR Nigeria, an agency which releases statements on behalf of the Nigerian government.

“With ongoing aggressive military operations in the North-East, some Boko Haram terrorists have surrendered to the Nigerian troops just as some top commanders were arrested while fleeing from the theatre of war,” Abubakar said.

“The improved synergy and inter-agency collaborations have enhanced the various operations towards the massive arrest of members of the terrorists’ groups.

“We are conducting series of investigation including background checks on some of those arrested and those that surrendered to the security agencies for proper identifications…. So far most of the operations are going on smoothly.

“Our concern is for Nigerians to support the military and other security agencies with useful information especially now that most of the Boko Haram camps have been destroyed; while the stubborn members may be fleeing to new locations.

“We urge Nigerians to report any strange movement and people, including suspicious objects in their localities to ensure that suspects do not have new haven to hide where they may later disrupt such communities,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian military has confirmed the arrest of the second-in-command to Boko Haram leaderAbubakar Shekau.
