Four top members of Boko Haram and the group’s Amir of the Kafa have all surrendered themselves to the 120 Task Force Battalion of Nigerian Army in Goniri, Yobe State.
In a statement made available by the Army Director of Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Kukasheka Usman, he said the terrorists willingly deserted their hideouts and surrendered themselves to the Army on Monday.
He said among them was a high-profile terrorist, Konto Fanami, the Ameer of Kafa hideout of the Boko Haram terrorists group that operates along Ajigin-Talala-Mungusum axis.
Usman also revealed that during preliminary interrogation, they confirmed that they abandoned the terrorism because of incessant hardship and realizing that they were misled by their terrorist group leaders.
According to him, the former terrorist stated that they were also erroneously misinformed and brainwashed about Islam and the Nigerian military and the society generally.
The Army Director of Public Relations said the remorseful surrender terrorists regretted their involvement in terrorism and marveled at the courtesies and humane treatment accorded them by the military on surrendering.
He further stated that the Nigerian Army is calling on those remnants of Boko Haram terrorists to follow suit and renounce the devilish creed as adequately arrangement has made to receive all those that voluntarily renounce terrorism and surrender themselves and will be treated humanely.
