200 Boko Haram Terrorists Surrender In Banki

The Nigerian Army said Friday that 200 Boko Haram terrorists have surrendered in Banki area. This was contained in a speech to journalists by the Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Maj.

Gen. Yusha’u Abubakar, who said after the capture of Banki, a Nigerian border town with Cameroon, on Thursday, over 200 members of the insurgency group willingly surrendered to the military.

Abubakar, who spoke to journalists at about 11am on Friday, said: “I have just received information from our troops about an hour ago that over 200 Boko Haram insurgents surrendered to them.”

He also disclosed that what would have been a major disaster in Maiduguri was averted on Wednesday night.

He said someone was caught at Medinatu mosque in Low-cost area of Maiduguri surveying the area with the intention of planting an impoverished device.

He said the suspect caught has given useful information that may lead them to those that planted the Sunday’s multiple bombs in Maiduguri that killed scores of people.
