700 Boko Haram Sect members surrender to military, FG to open camp for them

more 700 repentant Boko Haram insurgents in the North-East have surrendered to the military. Director of Defence Information, Brig.-Gen. Rabe Abubakar.

Abubakar said this when he paid a courtesy call on the Managing Director of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Mr Bayo Onanuga, in Abuja on Thursday.

According to him, a camp will be opened where the repentant insurgents will be kept “before the government decides on what to do with them’’.

The defence spokesman said the media had a very important role to play in mitigating the crisis befalling the country.

He, therefore, called for synergy between the media and the military in mobilising and informing the citizenry about the crisis.

“We have many of the Boko Haram members, who surrendered as a result of our operations in Sambisa.

“We have over 700 now and very soon we will open the camp in the North-East where we will be keeping them before the government decides on what to do with them.’’
