410 ‘Terrorists’ Surrender in Nasarawa, Bomb Factory Destroyed – Military

The Nigerian military on Wednesday said some 410 members of the Darul Salam Terrorists Group have surrendered.

A bomb-making factory belonging to the terrorists has also been decimated. The information was contained in a statement signed by a military spokesman, Major-General John Enenche.

The surrender followed “aggressive intensive kinetic operations at identified bandits’ enclaves” by a military unit, Operation Whirl Stroke, and other security agencies deployed at Uttu in Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Enenche said.

Among the surrendered terrorists were women and children. The military said, on August 26, 2020, said at least 410 ‘terrorists’, including women and children, surrendered in Nasarawa.
