Following many strikes carried out against them by members of the Islamic State of West African Province, some 300 members of Boko Haram have been killed, while 223 have turned themselves in to the multinational joint task force (MNJTF) (ISWAP).

According to Zagazola Makama, a journal specializing in the Lake Chad region, 223 Boko Haram members have turned themselves in in the Republic of Niger cities of Diffa and Gueskerou between March 7 and March 10, 2023.

On March 10, it was also claimed that 220 additional terrorists turned themselves in to Operation Hadin Kai’s soldiers.

They reportedly told security operatives that they were trying to escape the rivalry between the different factions of the terrorist groups.

“In one of the attacks led by three notorious ISWAP commanders, comprising Mallam Abubakar Maina, Qaed Malam Dahiru, Qaed Mallam Dahiru in Guzamala, over 200 Boko Haram militant jihadists, including their women and children were eliminated.

“The onslaught against the group continued on the 8th of March  2023, when more than 100 of them were killed in the fringes of Baga, Marte and Dikwa. This time, the terrorists targeted only the men, sparing their families.”

The attacks has also led to massive displacement of groups and families of terrorists, pushing many of them into leaving Sambisa forest for Lake Chad on the Niger Republic side.
