The Emir of Gwoza in Gwoza local government area of Borno state, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Mohammed Shehu Timta on Friday confirmed the surrender to the troops of “Operation Hadin Kai “ of the top wanted commander of Boko Haram Commander, Mallam Yathabalwe who has been terrorising Gwoza and other surrounding Mandara Mountain communities.

Competent sources revealed that Mallam Yathabalwe before surrendering, had been responsible for a series of attacks and killings, including the slaughtering of farmers on their farmlands in Gwoza and environs.

The Monarch said, “We are happy to confirm and inform you that the most top wanted Commander of Boko Haram who have 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.”
