A NOTORIOUS Boko Haram commander identified as Amir Adamu Ruga Ruga and his family have surrendered to troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.
Amir was known for attacks against military men and travellers around Mandara Hill and Sambisa Forest in Gwoza area.
A top security source disclosed that the Boko Haram leader surrenders alongside three wives and children in Gwoza town.
A resident of Gwoza said that Amir is popular in the town.
“All Praise be to Almighty Allah, the famous Boko Haram, Amir Adamu Rugu Rugu surrendered in today in Gwoza town. Karshen BH yazo Insha Allah,” he said.
The Nigerian military in a statement earlier released had claimed that the development is due to the sustained land and air bombardments of terrorist hideouts in the North East.
