At least 30,000 persons associated with Boko Haram have surrendered. For the authorities, managing defectors is a part of the broader non-kinetic and soft approach to countering extremism and the threat of violent insurgency. In today’s episode, we look at the relapse among Boko Haram defectors and how a lack of resources affects control, including other issues around the management of the disengagement process and the complexity around the factors fueling the surrender.
