More than 100 suspected Boko Haram insurgents and their families have again surrendered to the Nigerian army in Borno State.
The terrorists surrendered at Gwoza town, Gwoza Local Government Area of the state.
It was stated that one of the commanders of the sect led a total of 120 people, mostly youths to the military.
Daily Trust quoted a top security source who disclosed that some Boko Haram commanders surrendered along with their families to 26 Task Force Brigade in Gwoza.
“I think what we are seeing now is as a result of the death of Abubakar Shekau; his death has affected the group,” the group said.
“A total of 120 Boko Haram members and their families surrendered in Gwoza town today.”
However, the publication quoted another as saying that the failure of the terrorists to submit their weapons created doubt among the residents.
“The people are contemplating if the Boko Haram fighters are truly interested in peace,” he said.
