ABUJA—As information spread among Boko Haram insurgents of the death of their leader, Shekau, more of the terrorists, who believed their planned attack on Maiduguri would no longer be feasible, have continued to surrender to Nigerian soldiers.

On Sunday night another set of terrorists surrendered to troops in Kawuri, the town where a bloody battle raged between troops and the terrorists a fortnight ago leaving over 50 terrorists dead.

In a tweet on the incident posted its handle yesterday, the Defence headquarters said, “Another Set of 10 Terrorists yesterday surrendered to Troops at Kawuri. In custody for necessary security debriefing”

Vanguard gathered that with this number from Kawuri; about 40 terrorists including those from Konduga have so far surrendered. Only on Saturday, five terrorists surrendered with all their weapons to troops at Konduga pleading for mercy

It will be recalled that over fifty terrorists were killed in a recent shoot-out as troops raided their hideout in Kawuri before setting out on a planned attack on Konduga.
