Suspected Boko Haram members


Seventy-six Boko Haram members, including women and children, surrendered to the military in Gwoza, Borno State, reported the Associated Press (AP) wednesday.

According to a senior military officer and a member of the Civilian JTF, all of them have been detained at military headquarters in Maiduguri, the state capital. The detainees claimed many more fighters were willing to surrender.

In September, the army announced that 335 insurgents surrendered in Banki and Biu, towns in Borno.

Sani Usman, army spokesman, said those who refused to give up were killed. The military has succeeded in driving insurgents from the towns and villages where they operated in the past, even though the issue of suicide bombing remains a challenge.
