March 29, (THEWILL)- Most wanted Boko Haram commander, Mallam Yathabalwe, who has been terrorising Gwoza and the surrounding Mandara Mountain communities, has surrendered to the troops of Operation Hadin Kai.

The Emir of Gwoza in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State, Alhaji Mohammed Shehu Timta, disclosed this to newsmen on Friday.

Yathabalwe had been fingered in a series of attacks and killings, including the attacks of farmers on their farmlands in Gwoza LGA and its environs.

While the military has not officially confirmed the development, the Emir said Yathabalwe willingly came out from his enclave on Friday morning with two AK47 rifles and some ammunition and surrendered to the troops of Operation Hadin Kai.

“We are happy to confirm and inform you that the most wanted top commander of Boko Haram, who has been terrorising Gwoza and other surrounding Mandara Mountain communities in my domain, Mallam Yathabalwe, has surrendered to troops of ‘Operation Hadin Kai’ in the North-East.

“He willingly came out from his enclave on Friday morning with two AK47 rifles and some ammunition. He was then handed over to the troops of the Nigerian military in Gwoza, after which he may be taken to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, for further questioning or action.

“Yathabalwe, before surrendering, has been terrorising my people for many years, especially making it very difficult for farmers to access their farmlands. With this new development, we are hopeful that total peace will return to Gwoza and its environs,” he said.
