Two Notorious Boko Haram Commanders Surrender to MNJTF Troops

Two wanted and notorious Boko Haram Commanders from the Bakoura Buduma faction have surrendered to troops of the multinational joint task force (MNJTF). Lt. Col Abdulkahi Abubakar, the MNJTF Spokesman, confirmed that Ibrahim Muhammed and Auwal Muhammed, also known as ‘Wanka’, surrendered to troops of Sector 3 MNJTF (Nigeria) on March 25, 2024.

This development is a result of intensified kinetic and non-kinetic operations targeting terrorist groups within Sector 3 MNJTF. The commanders, who were active in the Lake Chad Islands, chose to surrender due to mounting pressure from ongoing military actions.

During preliminary investigations, Ibrahim and Auwal Muhammed disclosed their 15-year affiliation with the Bakoura Buduma-led faction, operating in Kwallaram on the Lake Chad Islands. Various items were recovered from the surrendered terrorists, including firearms, ammunition, and communication devices.

The surrendered fighters are currently in custody for further investigation, marking a significant achievement in the fight against terrorism in the region.
