A Military Defence source, Zagazola Makama, a Security Analyst and a Counter Insurgency Expert in Lake Chad said the terrorists surrendered to the Troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Damboa on November 20, 2022.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the insurgents came out from Sambisa forest, where they have been hiding and waging campaign of terror.
Over 90,000 insurgents comprising combatants and non-combatants and their families have so far surrendered to the Nigerian troops.
The sources noted that the sustained onslaughts on the insurgents under the kinetic and non-kinetic approaches had led to the mass surrender.
