The Borno Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, on Monday, said six Boko Haram insurgents had surrendered to the corps.
The Spokesperson for the command, Mr. Bulus James, made the disclosure in a statement in Maiduguri.
James further disclosed that the repented insurgents surrendered to the corps under the Operation Safe Corridor initiated by the Federal Government.
He said that a large number of demoralised insurgents had also indicated their willingness to renounce their crime and join the society.
James reiterated the command’s commitment to support the military to ensure successful implementation of the counter-insurgency campaign.
According to him, the command also conducts sensitisation activities with a view to exposing the personnel to the best practices in peace building and conflict resolution.
“The campaign seeks to promote good understanding with sister security agencies as well as enhance mutual relations with society, “he said.
