Bomb experts in Borno voluntarily surrender

On Sunday, two suspected bombers affiliated with the Boko Haram group surrendered themselves to troops of Sector 3 Multi-National Joint Task Force in Monguno, Borno State. The individuals, 19-year-old Abubakar Mohammed, also known as Garba, and 13-year-old Babagana Modu, opted to surrender instead of carrying out orders for the terrorist organization.

Lieutenant Colonel Abubakar Abdullahi, the Chief Military Public Information Officer of MNJTF, announced the surrender in a press statement on Monday. According to Abdullahi, the bombers confessed to being ordered to plant improvised explosive devices (IEDs) along roads in Doron Baga and Fish Dam in Baga, Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno State.

Abdullahi highlighted that the surrender of Mohammed and Modu is part of ongoing efforts to dismantle Boko Haram’s operations in the region. The surrender occurred on April 21, 2024, marking a significant success for the Multi-National Joint Task Force.

The items recovered from the surrendered individuals included two IEDs, two mobile phones, and a sum of fifty-three thousand Naira (N53,000.00). Abdullahi emphasized that this development underscores MNJTF’s commitment to encouraging other terrorists hiding in the Lake Chad Islands to surrender, aiming to achieve sustainable peace in the region.
