More than 100 Boko Haram, captives surrender along Cameroon-Nigeria border

More than 100 Boko Haram and their captives, almost all Nigerians, have fled the group in the past two weeks, according to the Multinational Joint Task Force fighting the Islamist militants.


Thirty-four-year-old Nigerian Kharim Kalga is among 109 people who have surrendered to the task force since late July, reports the Voice of America (VOA). Kalga said he has not seen his two wives and five children in the two years since he joined the Islamist militant group because they kept him captive.


He said he was living in poverty when Boko Haram fighters promised to give him a motorcycle to earn  money for his family, so he joined the group. He said he was forced to steal cattle and millet from villages surrounding the militant group’s camp in Nigeria.


Kalga said he surrendered to the military because Boko Haram did not fulfil its promise to give him a motorcycle. The task force is holding the former Boko Haram fighters and captives at their base in Cameroon’s northern town of Mora, near the border with Nigeria.


Among them are 45 Nigerian and three Cameroonian former fighters, 45 Nigerian children and 16 women who were being used as sex slaves. Commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force Major General Ibrahim Manu Yusuf said the Nigerians are all from Borno State, a Boko Haram stronghold. A campaign calling for Boko Haram members to surrender and be pardoned has helped in the fight, Yusuf said.


“As professional armies, we always open this window for those who wish to come up and surrender,” he said. “You know the narrative in the Boko Haram enclave is that if you come out, soldiers will kill you, and based on the way they are being treated, the way they are being managed, they kept calling on their other colleagues to turn over themselves.”


The governments of Cameroon and Nigeria will decide whether the former Boko Haram members will remain in Cameroon or go back to Nigeria.


The Multinational Joint Task Force fighting the Islamist militants is made up of troops from Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria. The U.N. says the decadelong conflict with Boko Haram has left 30,000 people dead and displaced more than 3 million throughout the region
