Boko Haram: Five insurgents surrender to superior firepower – DHQ

A week after soldiers stopped the Boko Haram insurgents from taking over Konduga, a town 35 kilometres from the Borno State capital, Maiduguri, the military has said five members of the insurgent group have surrendered in the town.

In a tweet on Sunday, the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, said five members of the Boko Haram on Saturday surrendered their weapons to soldiers

The military said the insurgents surrendered because they could not endure the massive onslaught by troops. It said the insurgents also pleaded for mercy.

The DHQ also said other captured insurgents are giving useful information on the group’s subsequent attack plans.

Several battles between the military and the Boko Haram in the past week in different Borno towns have left scores of people dead.

The latest of such occurred on Friday in Mainok, a village about 56 kilometres from Maiduguri.

The insurgents had attacked the village on Friday afternoon killing about 20 people.

A senior security official in Maiduguri, who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES on condition of anonymity, said at least 48 insurgents were killed by soldiers who chased them while the former returned to their base in Damboa Town.

The official blamed poor service by telecom networks for the late arrival of soldiers to prevent the Mainok attack.

“Due to the poor telecom network around Mainok town, troops (from 7 Division in Maiduguri) could not get the alert on time, until they (Boko Haram) had attacked and killed some of the traders – about 20 or so – and even stole money and food items from the poor traders”, the official told PREMIUM TIMES.

“But as soon as the message got to us, troops arrived Mainok and tracked them towards the direction and were able to intercept them as they were taking some rest or attending to a broken down vehicle.

“It was another tough battle but within hours, our gallant soldiers subdued them, as we counted 48 corpses and recovered several weapons and vehicle abandoned by some few others who fled.”

    Job well done our gallant soldiers. Kill them all and make sure no single BH exists on planet earth. Solidly behind you, carry on with the good work.

    • Otile

      You know what you are asking them to do? To make Northern Nigeria desolate because most Muslims there including females are boko haram. You want to create Golgotha in Sub-Sahara Africa?

      • Nigerlite

        You are the sponsor of boko haram, you Christians started alqeada and u started boko haram go and look for the video that Hillary Clinton was giving interview and said they created alqeada to fight the Soviet Union for them just like how u guys now created boko boys to rig election if you don’t watch your tongue it will get you in trouble boy

        • Otile

          I am a Christian man, but boko haram is Mohammedan. Judge for yourself, your people say that ungulu(vulture) has nothing to do with a barber.

        • hazina

          I am amazed how muslims d world over live in denial.guess u loose u ability for reasonable logical reasoning in ur madrassas.the greatest threat to our humanity as we know it
          is islam.its barbarity,its hate,its peadophilia ,its non stop blood letting.its attractivness for angry young identity-less europe born southeast asians.one wonders if d same ideology of IS,osama,alqaeda,alshabaab.boko haram was on d basis of judeochristian thought as espoused in d bible(which u 4ever villify) or that of sunni inspired wahhabism.
          deal with ur issues and stop blaming others.islam needs annihilation or worse reformation.God help us

            Mallam I am not hiding my head in the sand, like the ostrich do. There is a total misinterpretation of Islam that was introduce by some misguided fellows. Let me tell the total barbarism from 911 till date commited by Muslims which I utterly condem on percentage scale is not upto 5% of the atrocities Christians did in the name of religion, please and please go back to your history book starting from what Constantine did to Europe and Middle East in the name of religion that he adulterated, the Crusade, the outrageous crimes of the missionaries all over the world and to the abduction of school girls by Joseph Koni in Uganda who declared a Christian state that Jesus sent him to live writhing the doctrine of the ten commandment. My fellow Christian brother think twice before you talk any how we have bad and good people in all the religion if you don’t see it that way then I am sorry for you

          • Nigerlite

            WHEN CHRISTIANS SAY “DON’T JUDGE”.When a pastor converted two storey building to 6-storey without following due process and his building collapsed and killed over 100 people, you will say…”Don’t Judge”.When a pastor’s Jet is nabbed while trying to purchase dangerous weapons from a black market, you will say”don’t judge”.When a pastor’s wife file a divorce on the basis of Adultery of her Husband you will say “don’t judge” When a pastor dies and 27 Ogboni cultist surface in the church to claim his corpse, you will say “don’t judge”.When a Pastor divorces twice and another female member of his congregation claims She has had many abortions for him, you will again say “don’t judge”.When a Pastor and a “Man of god” is banned from entering U.K due to proven allegations of extortions of members abroad, you will say “don’t judge”. When a Man embezzled millions and EFCC nab him and he confessed that he donated some millions from the fraud to his Pastor and the Pastor said the money cannot be refunded because it has been given to “God”, you then say”don’t judge”.Then a female member and a co-traveller with a pastor said her pastor had carnal knowledge of her in an hotel room in U.K when they went for a trip, she also provided the recorded voice of the Pastor begging for sex and saying his own wife at home is not good in Bed. You then say “don’t judge”. When a Pastor shot his own father dead for abusing him and He smuggled his dead body to bury in a shallow grave in the nearest bush, when He was caught by the police, He led them to the grave and you will again say “Don’t judge”.Why do you now condemn Muslims Generally all because of this MONSTERS called Bokoharam created by this present Government just to distabilize the country if truly you MUST never judge??????? Let see the number of people who will judge me today….Oya!!!!

    As born again Christian who is honest and sincere, I believe that no single insurgency on earth that Christians are not behind. We are just hypocrites, can you imagine the name of CAN president to be in any arm deal or any suspicious crime ? We are behind all the insurgencies in the world, we supply arms to agraved people and black people. This is a new Christianity not the one of Jesus Christ. Who give Boko Haram helicopter to get supplies ? Who allow them to flourish ? Who bought over 300hilux vehicles to them and who fuel such vehicles and how ? Who breed, train and equip Alqaida? Who give ISIS weapons ? Who allow hundreds of British/Americans to join the fight in Syria ? Who destroy Iraq ? Is Iraq not better during Sadam than now ? Is Libya not better than now ? Is Syiria not better than now ? Who is doing all these ? Who proliferates weapons to all those who wishes to kill themselves ? Who is the genesis of Rwandan genocide ? Who is behind Lord resistance army of Uganda ? Who receive stolen money from Africa ? Christians of today are the problem of the world! We Christians should go back to the true teaching of Christ !

    • Nasir Yakub

      what a touching truth, from a wonderful heart…we just need to keep praying my brother, may all the bad people on earth both Christians and muslims find their end before they see success of their plans.

      • Otile

        Both of you should move to Kandahar. What are you doing here?

    • Otile

      The devil is a liar. You are not a Christian. You are a devout Mohammedan with sentiment. People like you should relocate to Afghanistan. Yeah, born again Christian my foot.

      • amazing2012

        What do you mean I am not a Christian ? So are you saying a Christian will never the say the truth, if it affect him ?

        • Otile

          What manner of Christian are you? Show me any decent Christian that can proudly defend the atrocities of Islamic ISIS in Iraq or justify the endless beheading of people in defense of Allah. The truth speaks for itself. Your own version of truth is nothing short of taqiyya(deception of non-Muslims).

          • amazing2012

            No body is supporting terrorism and other crimes, but if we truly want to stop such act we should start from the angle of those who give me weapons. The world is in a stimulation where if weapons will be available to people there will never be peace, even in Nigeria assume Mr. Gary Hyde a Briton who imported 80,000 weapons and 3.5million ammunition in 2007 have succeeded and let say such weapons get to hand of people with poverty and anger in our mind, what do you think will happen ? We are made to be angry with one another through poverty and religion, if today weapons are free and distributed to Nigerians we will do the same either in the name of religion, region or ethnicity. For instance Rwandan genocide, only two tribes and one religion going to the same church but the western world give hem free weapons and temporary protection to kill themselves. Also Liberia, the west collect their diamonds in exchange of weapons to kill themselves. The world is made of two major religion Chirstianity and Islam. Most Muslims do not have the time to invent weapons or proliferate them. Christianity is built on peace and true love not avoiding truth, black mail and encouraging violence. Jesus never support sending weapons for people to kill themselves so that his word will be shining.

          • Otile

            Stop preaching to me about the supply of weapons. Peaceful people have no use for weapons, but Islamists and haters are always looking for weapons to attack infidels and other targets. If the weapons are not readily available they always build them no matter crude they may be. In 1966 Northerners used their crude homemade weapons to carry out pogroms on Igbo people. They used their bindigas(dane guns), machetes, poisoned arrows, clubs, daggers, stones, bottles and even bare buckles to inflict death and injuries on helpless Igbo civilians in their midst. It was only when Igbo declared Biafra that they saw they were about to lose the resource-laded territory that they sought manufactured weapons from Great Britain and Russia bring Igbo back.

            So, violence and wars start in the minds of men while weapons are secondary instruments to help evil people to kill. For instance there is abundance of weapons in Europe but Switzerland has not used them to attack their neighbors. Similarly in Central African Republic there were few or no sophisticated weapons in in the land, yet Mohammedans attacked Christians sparking retaliation.

            My point is that if you take away religious fanaticism, hatred, tribalism, born-to-rule mentality there will be no need for these weapons to hurt others. Is this not more convincing truth than your anthology of wars?

          • amazing2012

            OTILE, you said I should stop preaching to you ! How can a Christian could ask someone to stop to him ?
            You give many abrogated points which are actually out of point but to clear your ignorance and those that may be mislead I will analyze your point below:
            1. Before the 1966 civil war, the incidence that led to it, is that the Igbos stage the first coup killing mostly northern leaders. This generate to the problem of 1966 conflict. Still don’t forget that the head of state is also a Christian( Yakubu Gowon). Also who become the reason of the death of Ironsi (TY Danjuma). Again, as an Igbo we asks for what we got. We ask for war and war has no rule, so what do you except Nigeria to do Igbos ? What of the Igbos who betray their fatherland and run to Gabon and those that run away with money giving to them to purchase weapons ? After the war thousands of federal troops that are prisoners of war at awka, owerri and omahia where killed, though peace treaty is sing in Ghana. Do you ever think that we Igbos we have problem and most at time we need to ask ourselves about our situation not to blame others on the problems created by us. The remnants and weapons left by the war give Igbos the mark of robbery in the country. While the positive of it is that we become more entrepreneurs than any tribe due to the survival situation we put ourselves as the result of the war.
            Swit

          • amazing2012

            Switzerland has passed through what Africa is passing, that is why now they don’t listing to religious leaders or accept any bad to their land. It is a completely not through to say Switzerland has weapons as the one proliferated without license or control.
            Central Africa: did Jesus says if someone provoke or kill you, to retaliate up to eating his flesh ? Google and see how Central Africans eat Muslim flash ?
            ” thou shall not kill”
