Enenche did not give details of the surrendered Boko Haram commander.

He, however, noted that the success was recorded as a result of actionable intelligence by the troops.


“In the north-east, within the period under review, troops of operation Lafiya Dole conducted a series of air and ground operations on terrorist enclaves in different locations in Borno, Yobe, Taraba and Adamawa State.
