At least 176 individuals who were reportedly Boko Haram fighters and claim to have repented have surrendered their weapons to the troops of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in the Lake Chad basin region.

Gen. Ali noted that troops of the MNJTF had also captured 57 terrorists in separate raids around the Lake Chad basin, comprising Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

"Military hardware, including sophisticated weapons and logistics were recovered from the terrorists during the operation.

"Air component of the operation from the Chadian, Nigerian and Cameroonian Airforce fighters neutralised several terrorists in their hideouts,"
