A former student of Government Secondary SchoolChibok, in Borno State, Northeast Nigeria and her husband, a Boko Haram-ISWAP terrorist, have surrendered to troops of the Nigerian military.

The student was among the over 200 abducted by Boko Haram insurgents seven years ago.

On April 14, 2014, Boko Haram fighters invaded the Borno School and whisked away no fewer than 270 students.

A credible intelligence source in Maiduguri revealed that some other Boko Haram-ISWAP insurgents have voluntarily reached out to the military, indicating their interests to surrender and lay down their arms and ammunition.

The terrorists’ resolve to surrender may not be unconnected with the destruction of their enclaves and camps by the Nigerian military airstrikes and ground bombardment; and the outbreak of killer diseases together with food scarcity, which have badly hit the terrorists.

While lauding their level of discipline and commitment to duty, General Yahaya admonished them to be apolitical, decisive and circumspect in all their operational engagements.

The Army Chief was accompanied during the tour by the Chief of Operations Major General Ibrahim Yusuf, Theatre Commander Operation Hadin Kai, Major General Christopher Musa, the Provost Marshal Major General Robert Aiyenigba, Chief of Military Intelligence Brigadier General DanladiSalihu, Maritime Component Commander OPHK Commodore Richard Shammah, among other principal staff officers.
