Nigerian Army Says 240 Boko Haram Terrorists Have Surrendered to MNJTF
The Nigerian military said 240 members of the Boko Haram group surrendered on Monday, October 31 to the Nigerian Army after they came under intense fire from troops, Punch reports.
The Chief Military Public Information Officer, Muhammad Dole, in a statement said the terrorists surrendered to the Multinational Joint Task Force.
The statement said, “The firepower of the Multinational Joint Task Force ground troops and joint Air operation during the Operation GAMA AIKI, forced a massive defection of remnants of the Boko Haram Terrorists.”
“Sustained offensive operations and blockage of logistics supply routes made the terrorists’ locations untenable; as a result, BHT and their families abandoned their locations and surrendered with their arms to the nearest locations of the ground forces in the operation areas.”
