 I received the good news that about 700 Boko Haram terrorists within the fringes of Sambisa Forest have surrendered.

Some others are in the process to surrender, This is a clear indication that the Boko Haram war is clearly being won.

The situation is being awaited; more details will come from the Theatre Command in Maiduguri later in the day.

I will like to congratulate not only our gallant troops, but indeed the Nigerian Navy and Air Force who are also operating in the North-East.

I congratulate Nigerians as well because I know what we went through during the Boko Haram insurgency and definitely, it will be a great sigh of relief as these terrorists are finally capitulating.

Army spokesperson Sani Usman, said 70 of the surrendered terrorists are already being profiled.
