Top Rank Terrorist, 3 Others Surrender to Army

Director of Public Relations Officer of the Nigerian Army, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, disclosed Tuesday, that one top rank and three other Boko Haram members have surrendered to the Nigerian Army.
He said they surrendered on Monday.
He gave the name of the high profile terrorist as Konto Fatai (and three others), who he said willingly deserted their hideouts and surrendered to 120 Task Force Battalion at Goniri in Borno.
He described Fanami as the Ameer (leader) of “Kafa hideout of the Boko Haram terrorists group that operates on Ajigin-Talala-Mungusum axis.’’
In a statement, Sani stated: “During preliminary interrogation, they confirmed that they abandoned the terrorism because of incessant hardship and realising that they were misled by their terrorist group leaders.
“They further stated they were also erroneously misinformed and brainwashed about Islam and the Nigerian military and the society generally.
“The remorseful surrendered terrorists regretted their involvement in terrorism and marvelled at the courtesy and humane treatment accorded them by the military on surrendering,’’ the Army spokesman said.
He called on other remnants of the Boko Haram terrorists to follow suit and renounce the “devilish creed.’’
Usman said that adequate arrangements had been made to receive all those that voluntarily renounced terrorism and surrendered themselves, assuring that they would be treated “humanely.’’
