Boko Haram commander surrenders with wives


A Boko Haram Commander has surrendered with his four wives to troops of the Nigerian Army.

Also, seven bandits have been killed and eight kidnap victims rescued from bandits in Faskari Local Government Area of Katsina State.

This was disclosed by the Coordinator of Defence Media Operations, Major General John Enenche while addressing journalists in Abuja.

Enenche however did not give further details on the surrendered Boko Haram commander, but said the success was recorded as a result of actionable intelligence by the troops.

“In the north-east, within the period under review, troops of operation Lafiya Dole conducted a series of air and ground operations on terrorist enclaves at different locations in Borno, Yobe, Taraba and Adamawa State.

“Notably, a high profile Boko Haram terrorist commander surrendered with four of his wives to our troops,” he said.
