No fewer than 204 Boko Haram terrorists and their family members have surrendered to troops of the Operation Hadin Kai in Borno State.
The Nigerian Army disclosed this on its social media handles on Wednesday.
According to the army, the terrorists decided to surrender due to sustained bombardment of their hideouts and the killing of their commanders.
It added that the insurgents and their family members are currently undergoing profiling at a military facility in the state.
The Defence Headquarters claimed in March that 47,975 terrorists and their families had so far surrendered to troops of Operation Hadin Kai in the North-East from September 2021.
The statement read: “The ongoing offensive onslaught against terrorism in the North-East region recorded another feat today, 15 June, 2022, as 204 Boko Haram fighters including their family members surrendered to troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Bama LGA of Borno State. Profiling of the surrendered terrorists is ongoing.”
