The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) fighting insurgency in the Lake Chad region has reported a continual influx of rebels surrendering en masse, which is a remarkable development.
The task force’s spokesman, Lt.-Col. Abubakar Abdullahi announced it in a statement.
According to a recent announcement by Abdullahi, the task force’s increased efforts in both kinetic and non-kinetic operations are responsible for the latest achievement.
According to a recent unsubstantiated claim, Boko Haram fighters are suffering a wave of mass surrenders. This is due to increased operations by the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) and a paucity of supplies in the group’s hideouts. The militants were plainly terrified by the combination of kinetic and non-kinetic techniques, resulting in a large number of surrenders.
In an unexpected turn of events, a critical step in the ongoing battle against Boko Haram has occurred. Four top Boko Haram commanders and 13 famous warriors decided to lay down their arms and surrender on August 14th and 15th, 2023. This historic incident occurred in the Kukawa Local Government Area’s Cross Kauwa and Baga territories. Notably, each person surrendering was accompanied by 45 family members. These surrenders occurred under the watchful eye of Sector 3 MNJTF personnel, striking a significant blow to the famed terrorist group.
A considerable number of surrendered objects were successfully retrieved, according to a recent disclosure by Abdullahi. These items include seven AK-47 rifles and over 440 rounds of varied caliber ammunition. One FN Rifle (SLR) and several other vital insurgency tools were among the items retrieved.
In a recent development, it was revealed that two commanders, nine significant warriors, and 21 family members voluntarily surrendered on the first day of the recent mass surrender, just a few days ago. These surrenders are the result of the 19 Brigade’s relentless operations in Cross Kauwa and the actions of the 403 Amphibious Brigade in Baga.
