The Surrender Of 13,243 B/Haram Terrorists: A Reason For IPOB/ESN Members To End Their Agitations

The increase in the number of repentant Boko Haram members in the Northern part of Nigeria have made a lot of people to believe that the federal government is winning the fight against insecurity in the country.

Recently, Defence headquarters disclosed that about 13,243 Boko Haram terrorists and their families surrendered themselves to Nigerian soldiers (troops of Operation Hadin Kai). These Boko Haram members surrendered themselves in order to escape the attacks carried out by Nigerian military on their hideouts and enclaves in Sambisa forest and Lake Chad fringes.

Brig Gen Bernard Onyeuko (Director, Defence Media Operations) who revealed this information in Abuja, said that the surrendered terrorists comprise of 3,243 adult males, 3,868 adult females and 6,234 children.

However, apart from the Boko Haram terrorists in Nigeria, IPOB and ESN (Eastern Security Network) members have been causing a lot of tension and issues in the Southeastern part of Nigeria because of their agitations for Biafra. They have made a lot of policies against the federal government and constitution of Nigeria.

Nevertheless, I believe that the surrendering of these 13,243 Boko Haram terrorists because of the activities of Nigerian military should be a reason for IPOB/ESN members to end their agitations and embrace unity within the country.

This is because no matter the power of ESN/IPOB members, they can never defeat the Nigerian military. IPOB/ESN members should know that the Nigerian military have strong weapons and ammunition to defeat them and they should equally be aware that many developed nations (US and other countries) are supporting the Nigerian military in the fight against insecurity by supplying weapons to them.

Therefore, in order to avoid battling against the Nigerian military, I will advise IPOB/ESN members to surrender themselves and their weapons to the military.

I believe that IPOB/ESN members should end their agitations for Biafra and support Buhari's Govt to tackle security and economic challenges in the country.
