Boko Haram Surrenders BellaNaijaThe Nigerian army has revealed that scores of Boko Haram members have surrendered.

According to Vanguard, many of those that surrendered fled their base in Sambisa Forest, Borno State, as a result of a rigorous Air Force mission that exposed the terrorists’ hideouts.

Acting Director of Public Relations, Sani Kukasheka Usman released the following statement on the development (excerpts):

The new strategies being employed by the military have started yielding positive results with scores of terrorists surrendering to troops and many more willing to surrender.

The strategies employed included sustained offensive operations, pre-emptive air strikes by the Nigerian Airforce and routes blocked by ground troops, all geared towards constricting and snuffing out the Boko Haram terrorists.

Many of the terrorists that willingly surrendered, painted images of mass panic and hysteria among their erstwhile colleagues who are feeling the noose tightening on their necks with the relentless efforts of troops and renewed vigour in operations inspired by the personal leadership of the Chief of Army Staff.

Terrorists also seem to have an inkling of what happens to surrendered suspects as regards screening and de-radicalization of innocent ones among them.”

The Nigerian Army in conjunction with the Nigerian Air force and other security agencies will continue to devise and implement effective strategies to bring Boko Haram terrorism to a speedy end.

It will also continue to receive surrendering suspects and assures innocent ones among them that surrender is the only option open to them. The Nigerian Army wishes to also appreciate the great support and information it receives from well-meaning citizens. More of these are required to help towards quicker obliteration of the Boko Haram scourge in our nation.

      just within days in office he agreed to grant amnesty deal to terrorists that have killed so many helpless citizens of our beloved country without challenging them.the next thing we heard was they were releasing boko haram members left right and centre. we never really heard anything about soldiers challenging bokoharam but they kept bombing and killing every single day. only Cameroon soldiers did the work for Nigeria. if that man is genuine,he should have focused on fishing out sponsors/members but he couldn’t coz he knows he’s the one behind this group.

      some of you are just guillible or just too ashamed to own up we really got it wrong. just because we can see beyond the ordinary doesn’t mean we all supported GEJ. if you truly wanted change,you should have voted for the other candidates.

      incase you don’t see me reply,just know bellanaija refused to post ’em

    Surrender? Just like that? After killing scores?

    So Buhari’s plan is to compensate and free this demons? But his rats NLC who couldn’t even conduct a transparent election among themselves are prescribing death penalty for Buhari’s corrupt opponents?

    Is there any one who is still wondering the origin and benefits of Boko haram? That it was unleashed against Jonathan?

    Oby has been muted because she is waiting for appointments.
    The Ibusa white man( Utomi) is ready to accept he is a woman if APC says so. He has lost his right to speak the truth since he joined APC. A man who said Akiolu was joking when he threatened the Igbos? Went stone dead since Buhari’s lopsided appointments as he dare not protest or else he will loose out.

    Boko haram will now be pardoned, set free and handsomely rewarded with the tax payers monies. Watch out for the reinstatement of the 66, 000 ghost workers rooted out by GEJ. Boko will now earn salaries after killing the innocents!

    We are watching closely as drummers stitch their eyes from the obvious truth!

    I have kept asking myself why I still bother with NIGERIA. Why???
    I guess blood is thicker than water!
    For those who are willing to hear, my take is that this is not going to be the last of this sectional wars/ killings as long as we refuse to thoroughly follow things through.
    This was the same sectional killing that sparked off the Biafran war. Of course, culprits were not brought to justice. Believe it or not, it’s now a culture.
    Am happy for not hiding the fact that Buhari’s candidacy never made sense to me. Am still baffled that in a country as huge as Nigeria, APC, could not pick a better candidate, even if they wanted a northerner.
    We are copying American system of government but make no mistake about it, the great USA, would never allow anyone who committed treason to run for any public office, much more the office of a president, no matter the reason for the act.
    Nigeria would never copy right.
    My heart goes out to all the victims of BH, from St. Teresa church to all the youth corps members and all the victims of senseless massacres in our history.
    Another lesson learned…Choose the right candidates. Wish Buhari luck and pray that he makes the right decisions It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks now,he’s our president.
    I weep for my native land.
