A high-ranking member of the Boko Haram terrorist group, known as Bulama Kailani Metele, has surrendered to the 145 Task Force Battalion, 5 Brigade troops at Damasak, in Borno State.
Army spokesman, Brig.-Gen. Sani Usman, said Metele, belonged to Mamman Nur’s faction of the terrorist group under the leadership of Abu Mustapha.
Metele has been on the Army’s wanted Boko Haram terrorists list.
Usman also confirmed that two suspected Boko Haram terrorists carrying out surveillance on Kareto and Dangalti villages had been arrested by troops based on information.
According to him, preliminary investigation shows that they are on a reconnaissance mission to facilitate a possible attack on the communities.
