Thirteen suspected Boko Haram terrorists and their families who surrendered to troops of Operation Lafiya Dole, are currently receiving medical attention at the 21 Special Armoured Brigade Medical Centre.

The suspects, alongside their 6 women and 17 children from Kodila village, surrendered to troops of 151 Task Force Battalion at Banki Junction in Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.

This was disclosed in a statement on Sunday by Defence Spokesman, John Enenche.

Enenche said their surrender followed “sustained aerial bombardment and aggressive intensive clearance operation by troops of Operation LAFIYA DOLE in the North East.”

He disclosed that the suspects are currently undergoing thorough profiling and investigation in line with global best practices in handling such cases.

Enenche said: “The suspects and their family members who surrendered on 26 September 2020, have been receiving medical attention at the 21 Special Armoured Brigade Medical Centre. The suspects are currently undergoing thorough profiling and investigation in line with global best practice in handling such cases.”

Their surrender and eventual medical attention comes a day after Boko Haram terrorists ambushed a government convoy in the state, which led to the killing of 11 security personnel.
