Top Boko Haram commander, 3 others surrender to army

A high-profile Boko Haram terrorist, and three other repentant terrorists have surrendered to the Nigerian Army.
The army spokesperson, Sani Usman, announced this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, July 18.
Mr. Usman said that the  repentant terrorists willingly deserted their hideouts and surrendered themselves to 120 Task Force Battallion at Goniri in Borno.
“During preliminary interrogation, they confirmed that they abandoned the terrorism because of hardship and that they had realized that they were misled by their group leaders.
“They further stated they were also erroneously misinformed and brainwashed about Islam, the Nigerian Military and the society generally.
“The remorseful terrorists regretted their involvement in terrorism that marveled at the courtesy and humane treatment accorded them by the military on surrendering,” the army spokesman said.
“We call on other Boko Haram terrorists to follow suit and renounce the devilish creed as adequate arrangement has been made to receive all those that voluntarily renounce terrorism and surrender themselves.”
