Abuja - The Nigeria Army on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of three more suspected Boko Haram's collaborators in Hausari Ward in Maiduguri, by troops from the 21 Brigade.

This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja by the Nigeria Army's spokesman, Col. Sani Usman, which was made available to newsmen.

According to the statement, their arrest was part of a follow-up to the recent capture of one of the terrorists’ financiers in Bama.

"Please recall that a Boko Haram financier, fund raiser and stimulant supplier, was arrested by troops of 21 Brigade yesterday."

"The arrested terrorist has been making very useful statements and lending more insights into the activities of the terrorists and their collaborators."

"This has been yielding positive results and as a follow up, three collaborators in Hausari Ward, Maiduguri were arrested today by troops operating in the area."

"The arrested collaborators of the insurgents in Maiduguri are currently being interrogated," the statement said.

In a related development, the army has warned terrorists yet to renounce their membership of the Boko Haram group to do so and embrace peace.

The statement said the Army had identified all hideouts of the insurgents and was determined to dismantle them..

"This is to warn all Boko Haram terrorists wherever they are, to desist from all acts of terrorism, surrender themselves and face the law now."

"We wish to inform them that we are aware of all their hideouts, camps and enclaves."

"They should follow their colleagues who have so far surrendered, because failure to surrender will result in serious consequences as our troops are fast closing up on them."

The statement appealed to parents, families and friends of all those involved in Boko Haram insurgency to kindly persuade them to desist and renounce their membership of the terrorist group.
