Some the surrendered members

No fewer than 69 Boko Haram members and their families have surrendered to troops of Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in Cameroon and Niger Republics.

A statement by the spokesman of the Task Force headquarters in D’Njamena, Chad, Lt. Col. Abubakar Abdullahi, said the development was of success stories achieved by force under the ongoing “Operation Lake Sanity 2.

Abdullahi said that women and children were also recued during the operations from 1 to 6 July.

“In Sector 1 Cameroon, on 6 July 2024, a combined maritime operation by Cameroonian and Nigerian forces led to the surrender of 56 Boko Haram terrorists. This group included 13 adult men accompanied by 43 women and children.

“Additionally, on the same date, 12 family members of terrorists, including 5 women and 7 children, were rescued. Both the surrendered individuals and the rescued family members were handed over to the troops of Sector 1, Operation Hadin Kai, in Gamboru and Banki for further action.

“While on 1 July 2024, troops of Sector 4, Niger Republic, received 24-year-old Tijjani Muhammad, who surrendered with one AK-47 rifle, 4 magazines, and numerous 7.62mm rounds. He reported that he had escaped from a Boko Haram camp in Libye Soroa, driven by the current Operation Lake Sanity 2.

“The increasing number of surrenders significantly weakens the operational capability of Boko Haram and undermine the morale of their remaining fighters. Other terrorists are strongly urged to take advantage of the opportunity to lay down their arms and surrender to the authorities for lasting peace in the Lake Chad basin region,” the statement added.
