Insurgents’ surrender excites Borno govt

The Borno State Government has expressed satisfaction with the growing number of insurgents surrendering to the military in the state.

State Commissioner for Information, Alhaji Babakura Abba-Jato,  disclosed this at the end of an expanded security meeting held on Saturday in Maiduguri.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that the Nigeria Army announced that over 100 insurgents surrendered with their families and weapons within the past two weeks in Borno.

Abba-Jato said the government was happy with the development and the sustained military onslaught at the shores of Lake Chad and Sambisa Forest.

He explained that the return of relative peace to many parts of the state has led to restoration of civil authority.

He said it has also contributed to the ongoing resettlement of displaced persons back to their ancestral land and expansion of farming activities in recovered areas.(NAN)
