69 BOKO HARAM INSURGENTS, FAMILIES SURRENDER TO MNJTF                                                                                                              09-07-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                                     The Multinational Joint Taskforce MNJTF, has facilitated the surrender of 69 Boko Haram insurgents and their families in Cameroon and Niger republics between 1 and 6 July 2024.

In a statement by the Chief military public information officer of the Taskforce, Lieutenant Colonel Abubakar Abdullahi says the success was recorded in the ongoing Operation Lake Sanity 2.

According to the statement, the combined maritime operation by Cameroonian and Nigerian forces under Sector 1 led to the surrender of 56 Boko Haram insurgents, which included 13 adult men accompanied by 43 women and children.

It adds that 12 family members of the insurgents including 5 women and 7 children, were also rescued, noting that both the surrendered individuals and the rescued family members have been handed over to the troops of Sector 1, Operation Hadin Kai, in Gamboru and Banki, Borno state.

The MNJTF has also received a 24-year old Tijani Mohammed who escaped from one of the camps of Boko Haram with AK-47 rifle and many ammunitions.

“On 1 July 2024, troops of Sector 4, Niger Republic, received 24-year-old Tijjani Muhammad, who surrendered with one AK-47 rifle, 4 magazines, and numerous 7.62mm rounds. He reported that he had escaped from a Boko Haram camp in Libye Soroa, driven by the current Operation Lake Sanity 2” the statement stated.

The Multinational Joint Taskforce urged the insurgents and terrorists to take advantage of the opportunity to lay down their arms and surrender to the authorities for lasting peace in the Lake Chad basin region.
