The army on Friday paraded 26 repentant Boko Haram members in Maiduguri, Borno State.
The former terrorists surrendered to military authorities in Damboa local government area of the state last week and turned over their arms and ammunition including RPGs, after which they were taken to Maiduguri for de-radicalization.
They were then quizzed by the military authorities to be sure of their true intention.
More than 2,300 fighters have surrendered in the last 13 months following intensive military action and seizure of the Sambisa forest, the main enclave of the insurgents.
More than 25,000 people have been killed in the insurgency since 2009 and at least 2.4 million Nigerians displaced in the North East states of Adamawa, Yobe and Borno.
