Like i said earlier, ever since Boko Haram insurgency began in 2009, this isn’t the first time members of the terrorist group have surrendered to troops of the Nigerian army. And the reasons they’ve given have changed over time.

The reason many militants of the dreaded Islamic group have laid down their arms was because of the relentless offensive by gallant troops of the Nigerian army, other security agents and the Multinational Joint Task Force.

While some consider the mass surrender as a positive sign that the decade-long unending war in the north east is finally coming to an end, others disagree, believing that Boko Haram terrorists should not be trusted and that the military should not be kind with individuals who claim to have surrendered.
