Brig-Gen. Bernard Onyeuko, the Acting Director, Defence Media Operation, stated this in Abuja while providing an update on the military operations across Nigeria between September 2 and 30.

Onyeuko also reported that a total of 2,783 terrorists and their family members surrendered to the troops as a result of the intensity of fire from artillery and air bombardment during the period as part of ongoing mass surrender by the Boko Haram members in Borno State.
