More than 100 suspected Boko Haram insurgents and their families have surrendered to the Nigerian Army in Borno State.

Daily Trust gathered that the incident occurred at Gwoza town, Gwoza local government area of Borno.

It was gathered that one of the Commanders of the sect led a total of 120 people, mostly youths to the military.

A top security source confirmed that some commanders surrendered along with their families to 26 task force bridge 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.”

“A total of 120 Boko Haram members and their families surrendered in Gwoza town today,” the source said.

Another source told our correspondent that the ex-fighters came with only their clothes and bicycles.

The source said the fact that they did not drop any firearm created doubt among the residents.

“The people are contemplating if the Boko Haram fighters are truly interested in peace.”
