Some 800 Boko Haram fighters have allegedly surrendered to the Nigerian military in the past three weeks. The director of defense information Brig. Gen. Rabe Abubakar apparently revealed the information Wednesday in an interview with Nigerian newspaper the Punch, one day after the Nigerian military announced the establishment of a rehabilitation camp for the former terrorists.
“I can confirm that about 800 of the Boko Haram members have surrendered to the military,” Abubakar reportedly told the local newspaper.
