More Boko Haram fighters have reportedly surrendered to troops of the Nigerian Army.

DailyTrust reports that military sources claim 190 insurgents and their wives surrendered in Mafa Local Government Area of Borno State on Saturday, August 14.

According to the security source, those who surrendered comprise top fighters, foot-soldiers, their wives and children. The surrendered terrorists also appealed to the Nigerians to forgive them and assured residents that they voluntarily surrendered, as peace is better than war.

This development comes days after some insurgents who surrendered begged Nigerians for forgiveness. Their plea had generated mixed reactions as some Nigerians said they do not deserve mercy based on their past.

The Nigerian military claims that over a total of 1081 terrorists and their families have so far surrendered to the armed forces in the last two weeks.
