51,828 Boko Haram terrorists surrendered to Nigerian govt – Irabor
The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor, has said that between July 2021 and May 2022, a total of 51,828 Boko Haram terrorists and members of their families turned themselves in the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Irabor revealed this on Saturday at the 7th Founders’ Day of the Edo State University, Uzairue, in the Etsako West local government area. His speech was headed, “National Defence Strategy and Transitional Justice Approach in the War Against Insurgency in Nigeria.”
In addition, the CDS said that between 2016 and 2022, 1,543 Boko Haram militants who had turned to God had graduated from the Mallam Sidi camp in Gombe.
According to Irabor, “no fewer than 51,828 Boko haram and their family members have surrendered between July 2021 and May 2022 alone, out of whom 13,360 are warriors.”
The initiative [known as Operation Safe Corridor] provides a variety of options, and participants are scheduled for vocational training to facilitate their reintegration into society, he emphasized.
The Boko Haram insurgency has been fought by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration for the past eight years.
Because so many terrorists have turned themselves into the government, Buhari’s administration has decisively defeated the terrorists.
