A former student of Government Secondary School, GSS, Chibok, in Borno State, and her husband, a Boko Haram-ISWAP terrorist, have surrendered to troops of the Nigerian military, PRNigeria authoritatively gathered.
The student was among the over 200 abducted by Boko Haram insurgents on April 14, 2014.
Although the female student’s identity is yet to be released by the military authorities, it was gathered that she and her husband renounced their membership of the extremist sect.
It was also gathered that they surrendered and presented themselves to troops at an unknown location, within the Lake Chad region.
A credible intelligence source in Maiduguri told PRNigeria that some other Boko Haram-ISWAP insurgents have voluntarily reached out to the military, indicating their interests to surrender and lay down their arms.
“The terrorists’ resolve to surrender may not be unconnected with the destruction of their enclaves and camps by the Nigerian military airstrikes and ground bombardment; and the outbreak of killer diseases together with food scarcity, which have badly hit the terrorists.
”In fact, there are many ISWAP and Boko Haram members that are willing to surrender as soon as possible but the military and other security services will ensure the needful is done for national security,” the officer said.
