More than 35,000 Boko Haram insurgents and their families have surrendered, according to the Borno State government, and three more Chibok girls have returned.

Brigadier General AS Ishaq (rtd), the governor’s special adviser on security matters, verified this during a stakeholders’ dialogue on repentant Boko Haram reintegration organised by the Peace Ambassadors Center for Humanitarian Aid and Empowerment (PACHE) in Maiduguri yesterday.

Ishaq, who also presented a paper on how the Nigeria Military Command and Control Centre’s Operation Hadin Kai handled the over 35,000 Boko Haram surrenders, said the non-kinetic method used by Operation Hadin Kai had a significant part in the mass surrender.

He claimed that because they were not compelled to confess, the repentant Boko Haram militants would not harm anyone.

The debate, according to Ahmed Shehu, Chief Executive Officer of PACHE, was aimed at forming an all-inclusive and homegrown policy and practise reform that would complement and support the state government’s efforts.
