The Nigerian Troops in the North East Zone of the country on a daily basis are getting closer to finally kicking out the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists from the North East zone of the country. This is so, as yet another Boko Haram leader, one Mallam Ramat Alamin has been reported to have surrendered to the troops of 22 Brigade of the Nigerian Army. This new development is not coming as a surprise, as the Nigerian Army is definitely not leaving any stone unturned as they have taken the fight to Boko Haram’s enclave, in a renewed onslaught to flush out the dreaded terrorist group, and the commanders are now feeling the heat from the Nigerian Military onslaughts, thereby surrendering to Operation Deep Punch of the Nigerian Army
The Nigerian military has in the last week received a Presidential directives after the unfortunate Dapchi School Girls abduction, to deploy both air and ground troops to different locations of the battlefield, to try and flush out the pockets of the terrorist group who are still hiding in the midst of civilians out of the North East zone, and secure the release of the Dapchi school girls. It did not take long before this directives began to yield a positive result, as already, the Dapchi school girls have been released by the terrorist, without a demand for ransom or a swap deal for their captured members from the Nigerian military. This singular act is a sign of weakness and a possibility that the group have been totally decimated that they are looking for a softer landing.
The statement that was made available by the Nigerian Military on their official twitter handle on this new development reads:
It is obvious that the fight against the insurgents is a decisive engagement as the Nigerian military is fully committed to the battle. This is paying great dividends as the insurgents could no longer take the heat. Operation Deep Punch 2 and other Operations have decimated and uprooted Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) from their stronghold in Sambisa forest. One of the Shekau’s Amirs in Malumri village under Bama Local Government Area of Borno State, who realized how badly they have lost in their fight has surrendered to the troops.
At the early hours of Tuesday 20 March 2018 Mallam Ramat Alamin aged 47 and Shuwa by tribe was intercepted by troops of 22 Brigade Garrison deployed along road Dikwa – Gulumba Gana. Mallam Ramat said he came to Dikwa to surrender himself to the troops due to the fact that Boko Haram Terrorists group could no longer hold itself and they are presently in disarray with little or no logistics to carry out their nefarious attacks. He disclosed that his personal weapon AK 47 rifle with Registration No: H3 2538, four AK 47 empty magazines and one motorcycle were hidden behind Government Teachers College Dikwa while trying to enter the town to surrender.
He also said that, many of the terrorists are willing to surrender due to hunger and lack of basic logistics but are scared of the consequences.
It is good and courageous for him to surrendered and would be recommended for Government de-radicalizati
on programme. He gave out some information and encouraged other terrorists to take a cue from him and surrender in order to ensure lasting peace and stability in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.
